TUSCALOOSA – When Alabama coach Nick Saban said he didn’t have a number one quarterback, he wasn’t kidding.

A crowd of 65,175 braved the elements to attend Saturday’s A-Day game at Bryant-Denny Stadium, with everyone keeping an eye on the battle to become Blake Sims’ successor at quarterback.

It’s a common theme among Montgomery’s sports enthusiasts. After a while, it just gets harder and harder to keep the population on board with an event.

Take the Capital City Classic, for example. Alabama and Auburn come to town every year and play in front of what is easily the most energetic baseball crowd either team will see. But each year, the attendance shrinks a little more. Although this year’s crowd of 6,219 was about 100 more fans than last year, it’s 1,000 fans less than Riverwalk Stadium was drawing four or five years ago.

TUSCALOOSA – Did Alabama make the right choice for a new men’s basketball coach when university athletic director Bill Battle hired Avery Johnson?

That’s a question that will be answered down the road. When Alabama hired Gene Stallings to be its football coach in 1990, his resume wasn’t a sparkling reflection of success. And his predecessor, Bill Curry, won more games in three years (27) than anybody at the university, yet never fit in.
