“We Want Bama” T-shirts are popping up around Eugene thanks to three university students.
Bret Klein, a senior at the University of Oregon, says it all started when after the Tennessee game. Klein and his friends were at a restaurant and decided to make shirts after customers started chanting for a match against Alabama. Now the shirts are gaining national attention after the gang wore them to Washington.
“We all drove up to Washington and we were all in front of GameDay, and apparently some of the GameDay people saw our shirts and mentioned them on ESPN radio the next morning, and we knew that’s where our exposure started,” Klein said.
The guys say so far they have shipped shirts across the country to Florida, North Carolina and Alabama.
