UNC Basketball Player Joel Berry Tweets #RollTide, Upsets A Lot Of Tar Heel Football Fans

Joel Berry is a freshman point guard at North Carolina. The 6-foot, 185-pound guard is from Florida. He doesn't appear to have any connections to the state of Alabama. 

Berry, though, is a Crimson Tide football fan, and he remains one despite being a student athlete at North Carolina. Today, Berry made Tar Heel fans aware of this. They weren't too happy.

Rooting for Alabama football has to be much more enjoyable than cheering for the Tar Heels, so it's tough to blame Berry for sticking with his childhood team.

Alabama opens its 2014 season Saturday against West Virginia.
