The ongoing Alabama-UCF battle is still being waged, well into the college football off-season.

By now, you probably know the deal. UCF went undefeated and proclaimed itself national champions, while Alabama won the actual College Football Playoff title.

There was also some back-and-forth between UCF fans and Alabama players. It was all much ado about nothing really.

Today, however, the athletic directors got involved. It all started when Alabama beat UCF in the women's NIT.

"Great win today over UCF for @AlabamaWBB! We're not ready to make it more than it was and schedule a Disney Parade...but we'll definitely take it. #RollTide," tweeted Crimson Tide AD Greg Byrne

UCF's Danny White responded soon after. "Our policy has been to schedule Disney parades when we win New Year’s Day bowl games," he tweeted. "We’ve won 2 in the last 5 years. The most recent in 2017 when we were the only undefeated team in America, & National Champions. If y’all wanna have a parade for WNIT wins - more power to ya!"

These two teams really need to schedule each other and get this feud over with. The odds of that happening appear slim, however.

Until them, expect more social media beef.
