The media following that comes with the Alabama football program is naturally large. TV stations and newspapers from around the state and region regularly descend upon Tuscaloosa on a normal Monday for Nick Saban’s news conference.
But what we saw today was on another level.
I counted 14 TV cameras in the room today as affiliates from all over made it to the Alabama football complex. I think there were three stations from Louisiana on hand as well as a print reporter who’ll be here all week.
There was even a national writer from New York here for 23 minutes of Saban and a few rounds with players.
It’s a circus, but who didn’t expect this? Just wait til the weekend crowd arrives.
