Crimson Tide Rolls into Happy Valley

In case you haven’t noticed, Alabama fans have been coming in droves throughout the day. So I went down to College Avenue to see what they think of the area and of course get their take of the game.

One elderly man told me that the buzz around State College has been “fantastic,” and, “it’s been full of Alabama and full of Penn State. That’s the way it ought to be.”

When I asked the same man about his thoughts for tomorrow, he responded with a very worrisome “I don’t know.” He added, “Our quarterbacks are going to be very overwhelmed tomorrow. This will be the largest crowd for an Alabama game in our history.”

Saban-mobile?

However, all Alabama fans are not quite as troubled about their quarterbacks. When I asked another fan about his take on them he said, “I have the utmost confidence in our quarterbacks.

Interesting.

A father and son who made the drive said of Penn State, “We love the college town environment here. We’ve really appreciated the hospitality here thus far.”

What did they think about tomorrow’s game?

“We came here to win.”
