A-Day Game: No shortage Of Incentives

The incentive for players to perform as if Michigan, the Crimson Tide’s first real opponent in 2012, is on the opposing sidelines remains unchanged. Winning team eats steak for dinner. The loser settles for beans. The game could be played behind closed doors, and that’d be enough for sophomore safety Vinnie Sunseri. “Everybody wants to eat steak at the end of the day,” Sunseri said. “You always want to be better than your brother,” sophomore linebacker Adrian Hubbard said. “You’re just trying to beat them.” Alabama has set A-Day attendance records twice since Saban arrived in 2007. His first game drew 92,138 fans, which was the maximum capacity at Bryant-Denny Stadium before its recent expansion. Last year’s game drew an announced crowd of 92,310 The next closest among college football’s biggest programs? Nebraska with 66,784. [More]
