Before any big game, fans from both sides will talk some trash about the other team and the fanbase. Former Auburn basketball star Charles Barkley was recently a guest on The Next Round, and was candid when asked if he hated Georgia.

“Not really,” Barkley said. “I hate Alabama. That’s a different animal.”

“I really don’t hate Alabama. I just want to beat them," Barkley added.

"I hate their fans because they’re obnoxious. They lost two games last year, and it was like, ‘Kill us now. That’s the end of the world.’ Then, after the loss to Texas, it was like, ‘Oh my God.’

“You got the greatest coach ever. They are a bunch of ungrateful brats. That’s the only thing I hate about Alabama. Listen, Alabama’s a great program. I have a lot of friends that played there. You know how much love and respect I have for Coach Saban, but I just hate their fans because they are obnoxious and entitled.”
