Alabama coach Nick Saban had a message for the Crimson Tide's student section after Saturday's game.

In a press conference Wednesday, Saban wasA visibly frustrated with the student fans that barely filled their designated section duringA Alabama's 56-14 win over LA-Lafayette.

"I can honestly say I was a little disappointed there werena€™t more students at the last game, and I think wea€™re trying to address that," he said. "I dona€™t think theya€™re entitled to anything either, and me personally, I think it ought to be first-come first-serve and if they dona€™t want to come to the games, they dona€™t have to come but Ia€™m sure therea€™s enough people around here thata€™d like to go to the games and wea€™d like for them to come too because they support the players. Ia€™ve never said anything about that before."

Saban wasn't the only one to feel this way. AlabamaA running back Damien Harris expressed concern with the low turnout atA Bryant-Denny Stadium on Twitter.

"This makes me sad,"A he postedA in a tweet that was later deleted,A "if ia€™m being all the way honest."
