Charles Barkley played his college basketball at Auburn before embarking on a Hall of Fame NBA career. Now one of the most popular — and polarizing, oddly enough — analysts in the hoops game today, Barkley has remained a staunch supporter of his alma mater and its athletic programs.

“Johnny Manziel, he’s doing something I never thought was possible,” Barkley said during a Chicago radio interview Wednesday, by way of al.com. “He’s going to make me root for Alabama this weekend.
“I never thought I would say those words. I am so close to saying ‘Roll Tide.’ Johnny Manziel is annoying me so much. I’m really close to saying ‘Roll Tide.’”
