I think this would be a good idea at the National Championship Celebration too. Not enough fans in attendance in the past. Also, a big crowd would help if its on a big recruiting weekend.
This is a great topic. I've always felt they way to say thank you to Nick Sban is go to the spring game! There should b 100,000 there every year. It's free and you can carpool to save gas. The whole day shouldn't cost u over 15$. And u get to see the best college fball team in America play for three hours. And saban makes it a fun game by playing the starters for four quarters.
Does anyone have connections within the university or athletic department to where we could get approval to try and do this? Feel free to pm me if you would rather. I think it would be cool for a few of us BOL guys be the ones to present it to him as well. I wouldn't want to interrupt the game though as mentioned earlier, that would royally piss him off, because it would be "clutter" in the middle of the process. I think it'd be best when all the coaches are announcing award winners that day, after the game, to make a special presentation to him. Since we originated the idea, I think it would be cool for BOL members to be the one present it if we can get it done.
Great idea. Should ask everyone to donate 5 bucks a person or so on the way in. Would need to get the word out
Honestly it would be more cool and special IMO if we did this privately. Set up an email blast telethon of sorts for Nick's Kids. Then have have Coach Moore present it to CNS and Mrs. Terry. We all know people who would love to do this and would love to privately show their Bama pride. Someone could surely be trusted to set it up and maintain it. Just a thought.
All awesome ideas. I'd love to get Lucky's thoughts because, frankly, if it was publicized at the game that "BOL" donated a bunch of money then that is a gigantic advertising opportunity for 247/BOL right in front of its largest target market.
We need a ring leader or 2 who are local to Tuscaloosa (or surrounding areas). Who's down? I can organize the California BOL Chapter. lol
If we carry through with this...on the day of the celebration he needs to be given one of those large printed checks like they give to winners at the PGA. Also, what about having Nick's Kids present at the celebration?
I say set up an online donation to run till a day. Display total minus money collected at gate if desired. From Alabama to Alabama via nick kids
Combat Search and Rescue.... "that others may live".
Bump for Lucky
Great idea and I will gladly donate. I think that this would mean a lot to the Sabans.
don't ask him to sign your baby would be a start! (vbg)
show up 100k strong all w/ Debbie cakes in hand
its a statement that he will truely appreciate
