Excitement is buzzing around the University of Alabama football program like it did in 2008.

Nick Saban’s first A-Day game drew over 92,000 fans to Bryant-Denny Stadium. Spring practice that year had Crimson Tide fans excited about the team’s potential to win a Southeastern Conference Championship and compete for a national championship.

Saban dominated college football for 17 years in Tuscaloosa (Ala.), and now he’s no longer coaching.

Alabama hired a new man, Kalen DeBoer, but the Tide nation wants to know if he will carry the same stability as Saban.

They want the same level of excellence, commitment, relentless passion, and winning championships.

DeBoer understands the expectations and he chose to come and succeed Saban because of it. Spring ball will kick off in a few weeks and fans are prepared to see a glimpse of what the team could look like. I posted a question to social media on what has Alabama fans the most excited when it comes to spring practice. The engagement has started and responses are through the roof.
