Alabama football is everywhere.

During Thursday morning's broadcast of the U.S. Open golf tournament, ESPN announcer Scott Van Pelt made a nice quip about Alabama football when discussing Robby Shelton, a golfer for the Alabama golf team playing in the Open. Alabama recently won the 2014 Men's Golf National Championship over Oklahoma State.

In case you don't have speakers, Van Pelt asked the (extremely) hypothetical question if Alabama football will claim the golf championship as a national title, as, you know, Alabama football has been generous with granting itself national titles through history.

The best part about the video? It was posted by the War Eagle Reader, an Auburn website. While Auburn fans love to troll Alabama about the possibly inflated number of national titles the school claims, the Tigers are trying to pump up their own listing as well.
