Excited Much? Alabama Fans Sprint To Get Nick Saban’s Autograph [VIDEO]

By: Evan Jankens

I’m a big fan of autograph collecting, gathering as many as I can since I was about 10 years old, so I can’t poke too much fun at these fans. I, though, have never waited in line for a coach; otherwise I’m in a glass house.

Over the weekend, Alabama had their fan day for the football team and it was the perfect chance to get autographs from your favorite players — or for most of these fans, from Nick Saban.

This looks like the farthest they have run in years.

The fans are let onto the field to get in line and, boy, do these people just book it. I know Nick Saban is popular there — but wow!

The gates have opened for the autograph session on the field. #RollTide
