Quotable:

Alabama's Nov. 20 game against Western Carolina was the first non-sellout of the Nick Saban era. CW sports editor Marc Torrence used that game as an example in his quote to the Wall Street Journal.

"You get to the point where there's a game against Western Carolina at 11 in the morning that's not really worth waking up for," Torrence said. "You can do a whole lot of other things on a Saturday, like get a head start on your drinking or sleep in, that are a lot more interesting."

One day later, ESPN's Around the Horn used Torrence's quote as a vessel to explore this topic. The notion that Alabama fans had grown bored of seeing their favorite team win two SEC titles and three national championships in the past four years had officially jumped the shark.
