Judging from the photo of Bama's spring game in the April 25 issue, if there were 92,000 in attendance the stadium must hold 600 to 700 thousand.

Yea, it missed us.

There are lots of war stories today about near misses. The major damage was less than 2 miles from my work.

Glad to hear it.

Some scary video from that storm -- of course, most video from tornadoes is scary, for that matter.

I was there and it looked more like 97,000 to me.

Very few seats empty.

Pic could've been taken near either the beginning or the end of the scrimmage, with late arrivers or early departers causing empties. Who knows.

Bama has the best coach in the country, and has long as they keep stealing high school kids from Flarida, they will win more NCAA champeenships.

Thanks JRM. It's pretty bad. It was an F5 tornado and as anyone knows, anything in front of an F5 tornado gets torn down. Lots of people dead. Over 175 dead.

It was bad when it went thru Mississippi, but OMG Alabama... Thinking of yall and hoping for the best..If we can do anything, let us know.

Your neighbors to the west.

Drove home from Dallas on Tuesday (Gaylord Texan and Great Wolf Lodge) night. It took us 9 hours to make a 5 1/2 hour trip. We dodged tornadoes from Dallas to Shreveport.

Didn't realize how bad it was until I watched the news the next morning. Thank God we made it home safely!

If I had it to do over again I would have stayed in Dallas an extra night. SCARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
