Nick Saban Gives Tide Fans Some Advice

Posted By Sports Talk Florida News Desk On October 24, 2013 @ 9:13 AM In NCAA | No Comments

Alabama_2013 [1]In the fourth quarter of Alabama’s romp over Arkansas Saturday, the Tide’s home field looked like, well, The U’s 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 they’re not going to put in a full 60?

“Maybe if you’re 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 Tide’s rabid fan base, the home slate of the team they live and die for 24/7/365 hasn’t 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.
