Do you think the Crimson Tide will appreciate this picture?

An Alabama fan tweeted out a picture showing President Barack Obama in the place of legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant Friday morning.

Bryant lead the Tide to six national championships and 13 conference championships during his 25-year tenure. When he retired, he held the record for most collegiate wins as a head coach.

Twitter user @CambroLiving somewhere found a drawing of Obama wearing Bryant’s iconic hat and leaning against a goal post. The text plays on “go Bama” to change it to “gObama.”

With Alabama being such a red state, other Twitter users started speculating on how this would go over.


Cambro said he doesn’t know who the artist is, but loves the picture. We’ll keep tabs on how the rest of the Tide fans respond.
