September in April
News: It was the spring intrasquad game.
Crimson Tide fans annihilated the national record for attendance at a scrimmage by almost 20,000 today for the coaching debut of Nick Saban. Unreal as it was, the number would have gone even higher had the fire marshal not ordered UA officials to close the stadium gates. And all of this was to watch practice.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is Alabama football.
