Nick Saban: Stay or Give Tickets Away
Despite their Play for Four Stay For Four campaign, No. 1 Alabama has a serious student section attendance problem.
And you know it’s a serious problem when Nick Saban is talking about it. “Everybody that chooses to go to the game should stay and support their team… [and] everyone that chooses not to [stay for the whole game] shouldn’t go,” Saban said on Tuesday.
Saban’s comments hint that the poor late-game attendance is not only a cosmetic issue, but that it’s potentially affecting team morale and home field advantage late in games.
It’s a pretty sad state of affairs when a team that’s won three of the last four national titles has to convince fans to stay at games to watch them pound opponents.
