    Alabama "Small" Crowd yesterday

    I know it was WCU but the crowd was very light yesterday. Student section was extremely light. I was upset. Yes we lost to aTm but we had so much to play for. It did get better and then I took my shades off and so all the empty seats. I hope it changes next week, or we may lose.

    But seriously, what's wrong with our fans? Was the early kick, the loss, the opponent, or all
    Of the above?

    I say it was pretty good considering all the factors. It is right before Thanksgiving, when people start buying Christmas gifts (low on funds). It is smack in the middle of two good home games, and it was early. Even if we won the other week, it still wouldn't have been full.

    I think the fans did a good job on noise as well. I fully expect it to be loud this coming Saturday. No issue with attendance at all.

    Light? I didn't think so. They were as loud as I would expect a Tide crowd to be when playing a team like WCU.
    I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games. - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.

    Wasn't there but......... Early kick. Cupcake "bad" FCS team. The 1's pretty much get the week off. No, the loss to aTm not a factor.

    I was very disappointed with the attendance also. Obviously, we don't take football serious as some like to say. I'm watching the UGA/Ga Southern replay right now and it looks like they have a full house. Not sure what our problem is.

    Only the second game in 15 years I've missed. Both were due to family obligations, first was the birth of my second grandson, this time a visit from my daughter in Virginia.

    I posted this on Twitter yesterday, and I'll defend it til the cows come home:

    "No fanbase should be judged by its attendance to an early morning, cupcake game the weekend before a major holiday. Auburn included."

    Every seat was sold. Some just chose not to attend. If we are realistic, we would have to admit that this was a scrimmage to get ready for Aubbie.

    My daughter is a grad student and she was there, doesn't matter who we are playing or what game time is she hasn't missed a game in her time at the capstone unless she has been out of town...she was raised right!

    Want a better crowd? Don't lose games you shouldn't and don't schedule 1-9 teams.

    Re: Alabama "Small" Crowd yesterday

    I shouldn't argue this but I guess I will...

    ...if you want to blame someone, blame the local Tuscaloosans were didn't bother looking for a scalped ticket. But I don't blame a single fan for not driving an hour or more for a glorified scrimmage the weekend before a major holiday, in a terrible economy, when most students have skipped town (and class), etc. etc.

    But Roll Tide, y'all.
