Appearing on ESPN2, Hall of Famer Charles Barkley said that in his eyes Alabama remains the school that it seems like everyone in the state loves more than Auburn...

“It’s different for me because I was born in Alabama,” Barkley said, via On3. “Unless you were born in Alabama, you really can’t get an appreciation for the animosity and the hatred for Alabama. But [Alabama] is a great school. I’ve got [nothing] but admiration, they just lost the greatest college football coach ever in Coach Saban last month. Nothing but love and respect for him.”

“But if you’re born in Alabama, you have to pick a team. Whether we play them in softball, volleyball, or whatever — we want to beat them,” Barkley continued. “I know I’m going to get in trouble saying this — but we’re like the stepchild. We’re never going to be Alabama but we want to beat them every time we play them. We’re kind of like Oklahoma State, UCLA, Kansas State.”

Auburn is the Dio Brando of the south.
