1. Pick a side.
Auburn or Alabama? War Eagle or Roll Tide?
First things first: if you’re crossing state lines in a U-Haul, you better start making up your mind about your favorite football team. This is easily the biggest decision you’ll make in your entire life, but there isn’t much by way of research to be had. While you can certainly look at all the stats, choosing sides is more of a feeling than a science experiment.
The one thing you have to know, though: Once you’ve chosen a side, you can never change sides. Ever.
