While there are tens of thousands of fans in attendance, the crowd is a bit disappointing.Nick Saban said he was excited to play in front of a big crowd today.“A-Day is a special day around here. There’s a lot of great traditions in this game — a lot of these things are special & what make being at University of Alabama a very special place,” he said.The crowd didn’t end up being that big, though.Alabama appears to have roughly 30,000 fans in attendance.Maybe 30,000 here for A-Day. Sad Bama Fans, sad. We can do better. We have a saying in the LEO world that complacency kills. Very worrisome for the “Bama Dynasty”. pic.twitter.com/S5P0nV1y1t— Criss in MS (@hwyman_34) April 13, 2019Here’s another look at the crowd:The A-Day crowd for today’s spring game … pic.twitter.com/E13Uz3q1QY— Alex Byington (@_AlexByington) April 13, 2019There are plenty of college football programs that would love to have a crowd like that for a glorified scrimmage. Those programs are not Alabama, though, and the Crimson Tide used to fill the stadium for these days.Alabama’s spring game is being televised on ESPN2.last_img
