The Alabam Crimson Tide’s ability to attract so many fans to A-Day continues to generate chatter around the country. The LA Times college football blog called it admirable. “USC might have lots of diehard fans, but the Trojans would never draw 90,000 to the Coliseum for a spring football scrimmage. Now, I know some people might say, what is there to do in Tuscaloosa, Ala.? But you have to admire the fan dedication.” The Pensacola News Journal called Alabama’s A-Day a “must-see event.”
The Rap Sheet provides a look inside the Crimson Tide with several interesting photographs from A-Day.
The consensus is that Greg McElroy impressed coaches and fans with his performance Saturday. The Dallas Morning News blog proclimated that McElroy had claimed the Alabama Crimson Tide starting quarterback job. The AP said McElroy stars in Bama spring game.
The Tuscaloosa News declared Julio Jones stole the show.
