Much has been written about the University of Alabama’s spring football game held last Saturday, an event that brought 92,138 screaming fans to Tuscaloosa’s Bryant-Denny Stadium for a “glorified practice.”

Chattanooga Times Free Press writer Darren Epps argues that this showing puts Alabama at the top of the list for the most passionate fans in the country.

Who’s giving these enthusiastic fans something to scream about? It’s new head coach and football savior Nick Saban. And who brought Nick Saban from the beaches of Miami to the crimson-crazy state of Alabama? That would be his agent — the sweet-talking, Memphis native, Jimmy Sexton.
