Update: Standing in line wasn’t enough for fans to get Saban’s autograph. The first fans in line sprinted across the field for the chance to meet the Alabama head coach.
Original: Fans could probably guess that getting a Nick Saban autograph is a big deal for Alabama fans. One fan of the Tide camped for 103 hours for the chance to be first in line for autographs from the team at today’s Alabama fan day. Apparently he wasn’t the only one who wanted a chance to meet the living legend head coach. The line to get a Saban autograph looks like it stretches the entirety of Bryant-Denny Stadium. At the very least, it extends a good 75+ yards.
