Alabama football faced some rare off-season adversity on Friday. Nick Saban will occasionally take players out on his boat during the summer. Unfortunately yesterday, they ran out of gas, which caused a group of players to get stranded.

All things considered, the Crimson Tide players seemed to handle things pretty well. The players posted videos from the predicament out on Lake Tuscaloosa.

It was mostly laughs, including the normally-gruff Nick Saban. Outside linebacker Terrell Lewis and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa posted video to their Snapchat account.

Outside of the gas issues, it looked like a pretty good time down in Tuscaloosa. Alabama posted a video highlighting the day out on the water.

Another college football player who knows a thing or two about boats chimed in on Twitter.

Responding to TMZ's post about the story, Fells posted a picture from a large ship offering some help.

Naturally, it is getting plenty of play online.

Fells, an Arkansas native, made his on-field debut for the Midshipmen in the Military Bowl, a 49-7 win over Virginia.

Navy's website credits Fells with having a great spring. We should see more of him in AAC play next year.

Luckily, he won't have to deal with Alabama on land. Navy's non-conference schedule features games with Hawaii and Lehigh, as well as the annual rivalry games with Notre Dame, Army, and Air Force.
