If you need further proof of the passion of SEC football fans, we offer not one but two examples this afternoon.
Our first entrant is Miss Alabama 2013 – the appropriately named Chandler Champion – who also happens to be a University of Alabama student.
Miss Champion is getting ready for the Miss America competition later this month and showed off a dress she’ll wear on the Atlantic City boardwalk.

AL.com described the dress this way: The Ann Northington-designed outfit is a is a black jumpsuit with a fitted bodice, complete with a houndstooth float that spells out “Roll Tide” on the front and has the Alabama National Championship emblem on the back.
“I really like to be trendy,” said Champion, ” but I do like to march to the beat of my own drum.”
Can anyone top that? Well. Maybe.
Meet our second entrant, Jason Ioppolo. Jason, according to his Twitter bio, lives in Ohio but we’re guessing his neighbors have no illusions about which team he’s rooting for. Check out this picture of his backyard – complete with yard markers, Florida Gator and SEC logos. (H/T The SEC Logo)

Which one do you prefer – the Gator Yard or the Bama Dress?
