Summary: Saban and Alabama officials are upset students have been leaving games early so they are imposing a clause which is in the ticketing rule. 20 student organizations (mainly greek orgs) will no longer get priority to sit together in blocks. It will be open seating throughout the student section.
Not exactly a big punishment but it is petty even if it was clearly stated up front.
I find it interesting the powers that be in college football have been making decisions for years which have nothing to do with the students interest. Most of the decisions have been made to increase TV viewership. And yet, athletic departments and coaches can't understand why students are showing up late and leaving early.
