Tennessee is coming off an upset win over South Carolina last weekend and its fans are getting a little cocky. One lumber store in Knoxville got so carried away that they supposedly put up this message on the marquee outside the store to warn Nick Saban’s Alabama Crimson Tide that they were next up to […]
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Despite their Play for Four Stay For Four campaign, No. 1 Alabama has a serious attendance problem. And you know it’s a problem, when Nick Saban is talking about it. ‘Everybody that chooses to go to the game should stay and support their team…[and] everyone that chooses not to [stay for the whole game] shouldn’t go’. Saban’s comments hint that the poor late-game attendance...
It didn't take long after the season started for many people to start calling for Mack Brown's job in Austinagain.
One fan started selling "Saban 2014" T-shirts after the Longhorns 1-2 start in reference to Texas possibly luring Nick Saban away from Alabama. There are even websites to help promote the idea.
One report revealed in Sept. that a Texas regent had...
Earlier this week Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban expressed his dissatisfaction with the student body for leaving games early. His obvious displeasure has helped fuel speculation that he might be thinking of jumping ship and headed to Texas next season (it doesn't help that his wife was busted looking at houses there; no one vacations in Austin Mrs. Saban).
The university has...
Tweet A day after head football coach Nick Saban criticized fans at Alabama Crimson Tide games for leaving early, the university has suspended block seating of 20 student organizations for their game against Tennessee. Block seating had been reserved for fraternities and other student groups, but will be open for any student to sit anywhere...
The problem with beating the pants off of just about everyone you play is that fans are bound to leave early when the score gets ugly.
And that's no different at Alabama, where swaths of fans -- particularly students -- have ditched their seats in favor of more fun elsewhere before the final whistle of multiple home games at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Here are just a couple examples...
If you are going to try and troll Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide, you better make sure you at least present your case in a grammatically correct format.
Hint: extra emphasis on "you are."
Seen here is an attempt by a Tennessee lumber store (Witt Lumber) to send a message to Saban and the Tide ahead of Saturday's game against the Volunteers.
Alabama has had a serious attendance problem all season as students have been leaving the games extremely early, and earlier this head coach Nick Saban sent a clear message to the students: come and stay for the whole game, or don’t come at all, because plenty of people are willing to buy those seats and fully support the team.
One Alabama student brought a rather interesting sign...
One Alabama fan made a sign saying "We're still here" to let Nick Saban know that he stuck around until the end of the Tennessee game.
First the University of Alabama responded to Nick Saban's complaints over fan attendance. Now the students have answered. They'll stay if Saban never leaves.
The problem with playing opponents that are badly outmatched is that is game gets really boring for fans very quickly. This is what’s been happening in Tuscaloosa all season long causing Alabama fans to exit the stadium early, and Nick Saban is not happy about it. According to FOX Sports Saban addressed the issue to the media and called out all the fans who have left the games...
Alabama Coach Nick Saban knows what it will take before Saturday for the Crimson Tide to be ready to take on an improving Tennessee team. He is not particularly interested in the post-game tradition.
When Nick Saban urged Alabama fans to stop leaving games before their conclusion earlier this week, he was not messing around. The university really wants students to start filling the stands from the first quarter through the fourth. The student organizations who have not been doing that recently had their block seating privileges suspended. According […]
Stanford has seen much success recruiting the state of Georgia lately. Now, they're stepping up to Nick Saban's mighty Alabama program. The Cardinal offered a Crimon Tide commitment, 2015 defensive end Mekhi Brown, on Wednesday. He joined The Bootleg Radio.
Sweet home Alabama, where the skies are so blue and students at the University of Alabama are leaving before the Crimson Tide finishes the football game.
While the team has been putting on a clinic of pain against their opponents on Saturday, the students are taking it as a means to exit the stadium before the final tick of the clock.
If you thought all is well in “Title town,”...
One of the top juniors in the Volunteer State was in Tuscaloosa on Saturday to see Alabama's win over their SEC rivals. The four-star wasn't surprised about the game, but his interaction with Nick Saban beforehand let him know just how good the No. 1 program thinks he can be.
