TUSCALOOSA – Basketball fans will get a chance for the a sneak peak at one of the nation’s hottest teams, the Alabama Crimson Tide. Mark Gottfried and his players will be in Coleman Coliseum to sign autographs, give away posters and show some moves on the court on Saturday, October 19, 2002, the day the Tide football team plays Ole Miss for Homecoming. A time and more details will be released closer to the date as this event’s tip-off time depends upon the kickoff time for the Alabama-Ole Miss football game which hasn’t been set yet. (It’s awaiting word on television). The basketball fan jam will start approximately four hours before kickoff.
University of Alabama students will want to attend this event as it marks the registration and season ticket buying date for those interested in joining “Mark’s Madness” the basketball team’s student support group which had close to 700 members last season. Students are assigned seats in the “Mark’s Madness” section based upon their place in line for registering and buying tickets. Registration forms will be available soon in the student newspaper, CW, and on Alabama’s website, www.rolltide.com.
