      Students brave the cold for Iron Bowl tickets

      {}{}{} Monday morning{}looked like a 'Black Friday' line at Coleman Coliseum.{} But, it was University of Alabama students in the wee hours of the morning trying to get a good seat in the Iron Bowl.{} "Just the thought of getting to go to a game this big with two top 5 teams, how can you not be excited," said Senior Morgan Bellon.

      {}{}{} The first in line landed seats in the lower bowl of Auburn's Jordan-Hare Stadium.{} But, some like Morgan "I hit the snooze button a few times."

      {}{}{}{}Just as many as those who were in line early, also trickled in late. "I did that for the Virginia tech game. I was here at 10 o'clock the night before and it was just too cold to do that again," said Colton Palmer, another student.

      {}{}{} The late-comers' got upper bowl seats.{} But, Bellon just wanted a ticket to the Iron Bowl, no matter where he sits.{} He has a brother at Auburn. "He's been talking trash all year. Not only, win or lose will there be implications for the SEC championship...but also in our house"

      {}{}{} Most students just wanted a chance to see what could be the most tense Iron Bowl ever. "If Alabama loses this game its over. A one loss team is not looking good for our BCS Championship. So its a big game in that respect and it's a big game because its Auburn."

      {}{} However, some say its just not big enough to brave the cold for the perfect seat like so many others did.{} "I don't think so. Maybe if we were number 1 and 2...but, not when they are not as good as they think they are."
