Alabama WR Amari Cooper Doesn’t Blame Students For Leaving Games Early, ‘We Have A Lot Of Blowouts’

Nick Saban expects a lot from his players. He has high standards for his fans, too. 

“All you have to do is come to the game, drink beer, do whatever you want, party in the parking lot. I’ve never been at a tailgate in my life. All I’m asking is that you just come and have fun and stay for the whole game,” the Alabama coach said last October after many fans left a game early. 

Amari Cooper understands why some of his team’s fans leave contests before the end of the fourth quarter. In many of the games Alabama plays, the game is basically over long before the final whistle blows. 

At the same time, Cooper is unsure if all Alabama students truly like football.

Alabama consistently is near the top of the country in attendance. The Crimson Tide finished third in the country in attendance in 2013 with an average of 101,505 per contest, trailing only Ohio State and Michigan.
