Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

It's a very frequent question, you might've assumed.


And a crimson tide is devoid of oxygen, it kills everything in it. We call it a jubilee here in bama, everything in the water comes out of it trying to breath.

Anyone who has been to the ocean wasn't immune to the hypnotizing crash of the waves against the shore. They probably took a couple steps out and let the waves crash upon their feet or went even further out and let the tide toss their weightless body towards shore. This is the core meaning of "Roll Tide". The Crimson Tide is a force that once it builds momentum, it can not be stopped and it will crush, toss or destroy whatever is in its way. When the Tide is rolling, the opponent is being man handled and totally dominated. ROLL TIDE!!!


Just a comment to the above ignorant people who wasted time to respond.. It has absolutely nothing to do with "Inbred" or Trailer trash. Grow up


it means nothing.


"Roll Tide" is a dramatic, militaristic piece of orchestral music composed by Hans Zimmer for the film Crimson Tide.

You can search any word on google to see what it means by simply typing define: and then whatever you want to search for. So, I searched "define:roll tide" good luck, hope this helps.
