At today’s press conference announcing the early draft departures of DJ Fluker, Eddie Lacy and Dee Milliner, Coach Nick Saban also announced that the Fan Appreciation Day and celebration for the 2012 champions will be held in Tuscaloosa on January 19.
Festivities will include a parade and celebration at Sewell-Thomas Stadium.
You may remember the last time a “championship” parade was held in this state.It was the Peoples National Championship parade held in January 2005 in Auburn. Complete with John Deere farm implements, hay bales and and a marching band.
I’m betting that next Saturday’s will look NOTHING like this.
And the championship trophy won’t be made of plastic, either.
