Spring Practice Begins

Crimson Tide opens first spring practice under Saban " Already annointed as the best thing since Bear Bryant by many Crimson Tide football fans, it's finally time for Nick Saban to do some coaching at Alabama. Alabama opens its first spring practice under Saban on Saturday with expectations running extraordinarily high, even for Tide fans who expect a championship drive every few years. Doubt it? Look at at the people in "Got Saban?" T-shirts."

Spring with Saban Published March 22, 2007 TUSCALOOSA — For the University of Alabama, it’s the most anticipated spring football practice in years. On Saturday, the Crimson Tide will hit the field under the direction of new head coach Nick Saban. Saban and his new staff will be installing their offensive and defensive schemes during the 15 practices allowed by the NCAA. Practices will be closed to the public.

Saban joins Tyde in Bama-fan clan "
So, how dedicated are you to Alabama football? If you answer that you have season tickets and that you go to every game, that's not good enough for Tim and Hannah Witt. They do that, too. But, if you say that you are naming your children after something associated with Crimson Tide football, then you're at the level the couple says separates "regular fans" from "die-hard fans."

As early as mid-January, the Witts knew their second child was a boy, and they knew his name would be Saban."
