    They’re called money games, and they make cash for both teams. Alabama will host Western Carolina on Saturday, and even though the Crimson Tide fan base might greet that matchup with a collective “meh,” it’s a home game and home games mean money for the school. According to TiqIQ, the average listed ticket price for Alabama games is $205, but that includes prime games such as Alabama’s home game against Auburn. But if you take the cheapest ticket for Saturday’s game ($55) and multiply that times about 90,000 non-student tickets, that’s nearly $5 million just in ticket sales. That doesn’t count higher-priced seats, donations to be included in priority ticket programs, concessions, parking and souvenir sales...

    But if you take the cheapest ticket for Saturdayís game ($55) and multiply that times about 90,000 non-student tickets, thatís nearly $5 million just in ticket sales. That doesnít count higher-priced seats, donations to be included in priority ticket programs, concessions, parking and souvenir sales. Itís a good thing for opponents such as Western Carolina, too. The school will receive $475,000 in return for playing at Alabama and not requesting the Tide visit the Catamountsí home stadium. Western Kentucky received $650,000 to come to Tuscaloosa earlier this year, and Florida Atlantic received $1 million. "At our level, where our program is right now, itís something you have to do," Western Carolina coach Mark Speir said. "You always like to play one. Itís good for recruiting to be able to say that youíre going to play the University of Alabama. A lot of young players, they like the thought of playing those games."

    "This time, after experiencing that last year, we knew what we had to do," Williams said after Wednesday's practice. "It's not such a big surprise. I mean, we lost, but it's not a bigger surprise for the older guys because we have lost some games in our past. "We knew how to get our team to bounce back real fast."
    Alabama has responded from loss with season's most energetic week of practice, says Michael Williams | al.com
