‘Bama Student Section Bails on Team
By halftime of Alabama’s game on Saturday against Georgia State, the Crimson Tide had a 38-0 lead. To a good majority of ‘Bama’s student fans, there was no inherent interest whatsoever in a second half consisting of the Tide’s second-stringers duke it out with a winless, first-year FBS team.
Hence the very large swath of empty student section seats at Bryant-Denny Stadium midway through the third quarter of the game. Early afternoon must be “beer o’clock” in Tuscaloosa, AL.
