TUSCALOOSA - AL -

    Monday morning looked like a 'Black Friday' line at Coleman Coliseum.  But, it was University of Alabama students in the wee hours of the morning trying to get a good seat in the Iron Bowl.  "Just the thought of getting to go to a game this big with two top 5 teams, how can you not be excited," said Senior Morgan Bellon.

    The first in line landed seats in the lower bowl of Auburn's Jordan-Hare Stadium.  But, some like Morgan "I hit the snooze button a few times."

    Just as many as those who were in line early, also trickled in late. "I did that for the Virginia tech game. I was here at 10 o'clock the night before and it was just too cold to do that again," said Colton Palmer, another student.

    The late-comers' got upper bowl seats.  But, Bellon just wanted a ticket to the Iron Bowl, no matter where he sits.  He has a brother at Auburn. "He's been talking trash all year. Not only, win or lose will there be implications for the SEC championship...but also in our house"

    Most students just wanted a chance to see what could be the most tense Iron Bowl ever. "If Alabama loses this game its over. A one loss team is not looking good for our BCS Championship. So its a big game in that respect and it's a big game because its Auburn."

   However, some say its just not big enough to brave the cold for the perfect seat like so many others did.  "I don't think so. Maybe if we were number 1 and 2...but, not when they are not as good as they think they are."
