Alabama fans dissed by ESPN announcer during loss to Clemson
ESPN announcer Jay Williams made sure to add insult to injury toward Alabama fans Tuesday during their loss to Clemson.
Clemson dealt Alabama their second defeat of the season in an 85-77 affair at Coleman Coliseum in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
Clemson led for most of the second half and even held a double-digit lead over their AP-ranked opponent with under five minutes to play.
Williams pinned part of Alabama’s lackluster performance to the lack of fan support in the building.
“What’s the point of playing at home if it’s not going to have a homecourt advantage? This doesn’t feel like a homecourt advantage at all for Alabama. The place is not packed. The fans don’t seem to be engaged. It seems to be more like a tennis match,” said Williams.
