Tim Tebow trashes ‘entitled’ Alabama fans
Nick Saban’s recent comments about Alabama fans appear to have roused something in Tim Tebow.
The former Florida quarterback said on ESPN’s “First Take” Friday that he thinks Saban was spot on in calling out the Crimson Tide student section for their shoddy attendance against Louisiana-Lafayette. Tebow is firmly on Saban’s side, going as far as to call Tide fans “entitled” due to their run of recent success.

“I agree with him. I love it,” Tebow said. “I think the fans are getting so entitled there at Alabama, specifically the students. Listen, as a student you’ve done nothing to win those titles, okay? You spent a little bit of your daddy’s money to show up at a game and to go to school there.
“You say you’re the best fans in college football, you need to show up. I don’t care if you’re playing Louisiana whoever or Hoover High School, you show up to the game and you support your team. If you want to say you’re the best fans in the country, you need to show up no matter what.”
Tebow is pretty clearly a big fan of Saban, but he took things a step further than the Alabama coach did here. The Tide were huge rivals of Tebow while he was at Florida, and he’s not holding back against their fans now.
