Alabama Crimson Tide fans are lining up by the hundreds to great their head coach Nick Saban. This event is known tongue and check as “The running of the Gumps”. The term Gump is derived from the movie Forrest Gump who fictionally played for Bear Bryant in the movie. It describes Alabama fans that are the most intense and yet a little weird.
Fans have 45 mins to get autographs. A good portion of folks here are going to use that entire time to wait for Saban’s.

These Tide fans literally race across the field in order to get autographs from their coach. It happens every year and never gets old.
