ATTENDANCE

When 92,138 fans showed up at the 2007 A-Day, it made national headlines. They didn't do it because we thought it was cool or wanted to set any records. They did it out of pure enthusiasm for the program.

Since that time, spring game attendance across the nation has turned into a competition of sorts as well as a recruiting tool. When Saban thanks the fans in his post-game interviews, he means it. You are part of The Process®.

I would recommend being at the game for the following reasons:

  • The assigned announcers are awful.
  • ESPN is not hesitant to cut programming if the game runs long.
  • Does anyone actually get ESPNU?
  • It's going to be a beautiful day.
  • To show up Auburn.
  • It's gonna be FUN!
  • Saban wants you there! (Process'd)

We hope you can make it out.
