"Let's Eat"

The Alabama equipment staff places two to three pairs of cleats under each player's locker stall. The cleats are, by NCAA rule, all a standard 5/8ths of an inch, but players customize them with messages like Let's Eat. The choices are endless inside the Bama locker room which is loaded with water, Gatorade, Power Bars, carb-loaded jelly beans, dill pickles and, of course, a special pot of coffee and some Little Debbie snack cakes for coach Nick Saban.
