Alabama’s football program is holding its annual A-Day spring game at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Ala. this afternoon. 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

There 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.
