Hit the link to read Gentry Estes' article regarding the new student seating at Coleman Coliseum. Starting this season, students will occupy the front row behind the basket on both ends of the court.
Personally, I like the idea. Opponents will now have to endure the witty and caustic remarks from Alabama's fine, upstanding student section for an entire game. Obviously this does not mean Coleman will turn into the new Cameron Indoor Stadium, but it should result in more students having an interest in attending games and, hopefully, a little more atmosphere for an arena that has, let's face it, resembled a library too many times the last several years with the exception of the students who did turn up for games.
