Post 92,000 Bama fans show up for Spring Game
WOW! Now that is a spring game. :shock:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Nick Saban is already filling Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium — and then some.

An overflow crowd of 92,138-plus fans attended the Crimson Tide’s spring game Saturday, nearly doubling the school’s A-Day attendance record and forcing university officials to start turning people away in the first half.

Alabama officials had to turn away fans from the A-Day game after more than 92,000 arrived.

That kind of turnout for essentially a scrimmage was yet another indication of how much Saban’s hiring in January has stirred up a rabid fan base hungry for a championship.

“It shows the passion that people have for the University of Alabama, and it certainly makes me feel great about being here as head coach,â€￾ Saban said.

Alabama is definitely my favorite SEC team, having lived in Montgomery while growing up. I was even a Crimson Tide football player for Halloween in 1988!

I think Saban is going to do great things there in Tuscaloosa. I see a National Championship for them in 2009!

Every town in Alabama had a lower population of rednecks that day.

I hate Bammer. They might even be more backwoods than SFA.

Yep, even puppies and bunny rabbits.

Plus, I like Auburn so I'm inclined to hate Bammer.

I have met 5 people that go to 'Bama.

4 males and 1 female.

They were all white and were all very racist.

Just an interesting observation, not implying anything.

I hope, if and when we move up, we can have more than a few hundred at our spring game.I wonder what type of security Saban will have when he goes back to Tiger Stadium? The answer:lots and lots.I like Ole Miss ans LSU.

Ironically the only person I know that goes there is a hispanic kid from San Antonio.

But I've never been to Alabama so I can't say anything about the place.

Post Bama
The Tide got a good coach, but for the last several years Auburn has the pick of top recruits in the state. It will take some time for the "Tide to Turn" (no pun intended). Saban had alot of success @ LSU, because they are not really competing in state with any other D-1 school. Bama will improve, but the are aways away from contending.

Keep in mind, every year they play LSU, Auburn, Arkansas and Ole Miss. Also either FLA, TEN, GA from the SEC East....... No tougher Conference than the SEC!

I got accepted to Bama this year and it was my back-up plan if I wasn't accepted to Baylor, but man I wish we had that kind of fan support...

You are preaching to the choir about that one.
