    Ouch.

    Wouldn't have been any better if we had beaten A&M.

    Ga southern is a much better team/program than wcu. Not to mention the in-state school side of it.

    Actually I don't think it was. I either read it or heard Eli on the radio say this was the first time a game wasn't sold out in Saban's tenure.

    Maybe the AD/SEC will stop pretending people are ok to see these kind of games.

    Alabama "Small" Crowd yesterday

    I would have loved to attend the game. However, face value was $55. For me to go, that would be $110 on tickets. Then, I have to add $50 on gas and probably another $50 for food during the entire trip. Not worth spending $200 on a scrimmage.

    I was there, and am happy to report there were no problems getting out of T-town after the game.

    I was there to see Alabama play, not Western Carolina.
    If God wanted me to be humble, he would have sent me to Auburn.

    $45 face value. i couldn't give away 4 tickets, and the school was running specials that gave you free food and drink with tickets

    I attended, but decided to leave right after we got to 49-0 (kind of glad we didn't sit through another 1.5 quarters of no scoring).

    Re: Alabama "Small" Crowd yesterday

    With some legitimate exceptions, such as some mentioned above, people didn't go because they are lazy. They just want to go to "big" games. Think of all the great fans who would love to be able to go, but can't. Not don't want to, but can't for real reasons. Too many don't want to be engaged when Alabama has lost or may not have a good shot at a NC. They are hot stuff Bama fans until there is a slip up or adversity then they are all mouth. Just listen to a radio talk show last week. There are too many casual, good times fans out there. I wish they would latch on to another team with their wishy washy allegiance, maybe dust off the orange side of their closet.
    And yes, I was there yesterday.

    I'm being a jerk here, I know, but there's 100,000 people in Tuscaloosa. Fuss at the bandwagon fans who live fifteen minutes from the stadium, but don't make blanket accusations about our fanbase.

    I mean...how much money do some of you people spend on this? I'm a diehard fan and alum, but geez.

    For what it is worth, the A&M game had nothing to do with it, but the opponent did have an impact. Given the toughness of the schedule in this conference, the team needs a break at some point in the season. This was one of them.

    Re: Alabama "Small" Crowd yesterday

    I often wonder how many of the people who complain were actually there... I was and I also will say.
    there were tix for sale as cheap as $5 outside.
    so finance should not be a big concern if you really wanted to see " your" Tide play.
