College football season is a time for fun, beers, bets, and brackets. Everyone has their favorite team’s shirt ready to wear for the next 16 weeks. Its 2016 season will begin in less than two weeks with plenty of high-profile games to start.
Oklahoma will play against Houston. LSU play against Wisconsin. And in what should be one of the biggest games of opening weekend, Alabama will play USC at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
All the fans of these teams still have some time to prepare for all of the big showdowns, but the USC and Alabama fans are already talking trash to one another and engaging in some trolling in the classic form of T-shirts.
USC fans kicked things off by unveiling “Rolls Tears Rolls” T-shirts, a play on Alabama’s Roll Tide saying. The shirts are currently being sold in the school bookstore to upset the Crimson Tide faithful.

But Alabama fans have already taken notice. The fans have created a T-shirt meant to troll both USC fans and Clemson fans who sat back and watched Alabama beat their team in the College Football Playoff title game in January.
The shirt has to do with a player named O.J. Howard on Alabama’s roster who racked up more than 200 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the title game against Clemson last season and was named the CFP Offensive MVP. USC used to have a guy named O.J. on their roster back in the day, too, and, now it all makes sense.

Whoever put this shirt together killed the Trojans with their comeback. But you know, it seems like it might not be appropriate considering the circumstances. We can’t wait to see what the upcoming season has in store.
