Roll Tide, Roll!!!
Will the Tide roll next year under new Coach Nick Saban? Well, expectations are running high and anytime a team can get 100,000 fans to turn out for a spring game, you can safely say the fan-base is there. There were so many fans that turned out for the Tide's traditional A-Day game on Saturday that they couldn't all fit into Bama's newly enlarged stadium.
In all my years at BAMA I don't ever recall going to an A-Day game, but I would have yesterday if I had known in time that it was FREE. So, was it that the game was free or that we Alabama fans are letting our hopes get built up over the team under Coach Saban?
The game made the news here yesterday with the Montgomery Advertiser devoting a huge part of Sunday's front page to the story. I can't wait to see if the Tide will roll for sure in the fall, but Saturday leaves me really hopeful.
