Note from Athony Grant concerning the Purdue game and Heisman trophy presentation.
Dear Alabama Fan:
We have a great opportunity this weekend as our basketball team takes on the #5 Purdue Boilermakers Saturday, December 12th. Tip-off for this nationally televised game is 8pm on ESPN2. According to our ticket office, we have about 1,500 tickets left to sell. The ticket office has also informed me that the Purdue alumni have purchased 500 tickets to the game. We need everyone in the stands to cheer on the Tide.
Students are off on break, but I am encouraging all of those students that live close to come to the game. We will need to make Coleman an uncomfortable place to play Saturday.
I am also excited about the positive momentum our football team has created. We have another opportunity Saturday night with Mark Ingram and the Heisman trophy. I have instructed our marketing department to announce the results of the ballot and show Mark’s acceptance speech at half time should he win. It is a great time to be an Alabama fan.
See you Saturday night…bring a friend.
