Nick Saban Gives Tide Fans Some Advice

Alabama_2013In the fourth quarter of Alabamas romp over Arkansas Saturday, the Tides home field looked like, well, The Us home field as fans made an early exit with yet another victory firmly in hand.

Nick Saban, who has talked to his players about playing for 60 minutes in the game and competing for 60 minutes in the game, is of the impression that fans should do the same regardless of the score.

And if theyre not going to put in a full 60?

Maybe if youre not interested in doing that, you should let someone else go who would really like to go because I have a lot of people who want to go, the coach said.

In fairness to the Tides rabid fan base, the home slate of the team they live and die for 24/7/365 hasnt exactly been filled with either quality opposition or nail-biters. Alabama has played four home games this season: Colorado State, Ole Miss, Georgia State and Arkansas. Exiting the third quarter of those games, the Tide has been up on the scoreboard by a combined score of 123-9.
