Saban Speaks on Environment for Saturday’s Clash Against Texas
In his weekly Wednesday evening press conference, coach Saban spoke on the importance of a rowdy home environment this Saturday.
"I think the atmosphere and environment in this game, fans their energy and enthusiasm, can really have an impact on a game like this. [...] I think the fans being in this game can create not only positive energy for our team, which we certainly appreciate and I know the players appreciate, but also make it more difficult for the other team to operate when they have the ball," said Saban.
Texas staffer Jeff Banks took a jab at Bryant-Denny's environment in August, stating that playing under the lights in Tuscaloosa is the exact same as at Kansas or Iowa State.
"We're just going to play another road game. Just as hard in Kansas and Iowa State as it is going to be in Tuscaloosa. Just bigger and more people." said Banks.
The environment in Bryant-Denny has been quiet at times, but the Crimson Tide faithful have always been capable of turning it up against a big opponent which is exactly who the Tide is facing this week.
For reference, Bryant-Denny stadium has a capacity of 101,821 seats, while Jack Trice stadium can host 61,500 and David Booth Memorial Stadium is capable of seating 47,233 fans.
Whether or not you believe that Alabama can fend off the Longhorns, the 101,821 Alabama fans should be rocking Saturday night.
