Alabama has a very good college football team. The Crimson Tide also have a very successful college golf program. The men's golf team just won back-to-back national championships, a feat that came up during the first-round coverage of the U.S. Open.
Scott Van Pelt took the opportunity to perfectly work in a joke about claimed football national championships.
Not that Alabama -- or other teams -- would ever try to claim mythological national championships. Roll Tide.
