ALABAMA FOOTBALL HOLDS FIRST SCRIMMAGE OF THE SPRING (courtesy of UA)
McCarron and Sims Throw for Three Touchdowns Each
The Alabama Crimson Tide scrimmaged for the first time this spring Saturday afternoon for just over two hours in Bryant-Denny Stadium. The scrimmage portion of the day included regular 11-on-11, situational drills, red area and 2-minute.

“I thought we did a really good job offensively,” head coach Nick Saban said. “I was really pleased with the quarterback play. Those guys played with a lot of poise, did a good job of throwing the ball, made a couple errors, had some drops, and threw a couple interceptions I’m sure we’d like to have back. Overall, I thought they managed the game well and their leadership was good.”

Phillip Sims and A.J. McCarron both threw for three touchdowns and received the majority of the work at quarterback, splitting time equally with the first and second offenses. Sims was 20-of-30 for 225 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions while McCarron was 18-of-33 for 189 yards with three scores and one pick.

Kenny Bell, Marquis Maze, Darius Hanks and DeAndrew White all had 60-plus yards to lead the receivers. Bell and Maze had two touchdowns apiece.

“We moved the ball effectively offensively,” Saban said. “We did a nice job on the offensive line; did a nice job running the ball as well. Both backs, Trent and Eddie, did a nice job and made some big plays out there offensively. I was really pleased with the way we played offensively.”

Leading the ground game was Eddie Lacy, who carried 10 times for 92 yards with three touchdowns including a 45-yarder. Trent Richardson ran five times for 40 yards and also added two catches for 25 yards with one touchdown.

Linebacker C.J. Mosley was the top tackler with six stops and one interception. Nico Johnson, DeQuan Menzie and Trey DePriest had five tackles each. Dont’a Hightower had a scrimmage-high two sacks and four total tackles. Mosley, Courtney Upshaw, John Fulton and Vinnie Sunseri each had an interception.

“Even though there were good things on defense, I think the one glaring thing is we didn’t tackle as well as we need to,” Saban said. “We didn’t tackle, we didn’t clean up, we didn’t get people around the ball and running to the ball to be the kind of aggressive defense that we’ve been in the past.”

The Crimson Tide will return to the practice field Monday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.

    The process continues….. Another contender… Another possible NC. It sure is sweet being a Bama fan……
    My question is instead of going through a bunch of coaching hopefuls, why didnt Bama go after a Nick Saban quicker in the last decade.
    As the folks down the road to the east are learning you truly get what you pay for.

    No what you need is a camera so you won’t forget what it looks like after they repossess it. Also if you look at it real close you will see that there are imperfections throughout and it has a sickly taint to the color. If you want to see what a perfect one looks like you can always visit our trophy case. RTR!

    I know FBJ. They are. Especially when you have a bunch of them in a case together. They seem to amplify. But then, you wouldn’t know much about that. At least you can reflect on that when the NCAA hammer falls.

    Ah the invisable hammer. Gotta watch out for that thing. You do have a trophy case full of em dontcha? Didnt think the BCS has been around that long. I coulda sworn yall had 1, but guess I was wrong. Crimsonite…..Me and some real men are talking here. Why dont you go find your spot up against the fence by your local playground and fight your urges, you gutless j@ckoff.

    actually bama has two crystal footballs in the trophy case! its ok tho fbj your denial is like that of a man who all his buddiez are telling him that his ol lady is fukin an outta work blue gum but you refuse to believe it. and when you finally do come to the realization that it is true you will deny it to no end.you will even go so far as to make excuses for her! the four horsemen of the barns apocolypse have ridden against the skankiest trailer park on the pasture and rest assured judgement day is upon the barn! btw I made it biblical for ya since awburn buyin their title was a god thing and all!

    Now if you had only made halfway readable, that would be fantastic. Is that other crystal a BCS crystal, cause thats what I was talking about. Learn how to read before you let your fingers do the talking.

    Now the stupid motherphuckers are trying to say that the BCS trophy is the only one that counts. Of course we would never in hell have heard that excuse before last year, since that would have invalidated their ’57 trophy which was of course won by cheating just like the new one was.

    FBJ, they got a crystal trophy in 1992 dummy. Go down to the Bryant Museum and you can see how fake they really are. And that hammer is real, but you are too stupid to be aware of it. That is okay, you just reflect Auburns football program and how they have been making a mockery of the NCAA. Tick-tock. Your time for laughing and ignoring the truth will be up soon, so get it all in while you can.

    Oh I know more than the streak….like 28-27. You talk awful big to be such a limp wrist. One is already on tap to star in their own obituary. Want to make it two?

    FBJ, crystal is crystal. There was no BSC in 1992, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. The BSC may not exist 10 years from now. But that National Championship lives forever, unless you get caught cheating and have to vacate it, like USC had to do. You think that ONE trophy in your case holds up to Bamas? You have lost your mind. Like I said, enjoy it, savor it, brag about it all you can while there is still time. Like I said before, even when Auburn wins, they somehow end up looking like a loser. And Auburn isn’t looking like National Champions for long. Its spring, a new season will be here before you know it. Enjoy your fall out of the National picture. You will be gone as quick as Cam.

    FinebaumJunkie

    Thanks Bamatruth. That will come in handy!!! See ya ass soon. Brando, never said it added up to how many you have. I was talking about the current system to crown a champion, and for the record, it’s called BCS, not BSC. Just shows how much you know.

  15. 20
    FinebaumJunkie

    Again bamatruth….thank you so much for that info. I will make sure to tell you who I am before I beat the fukin $hit out of you.

    bamatruth77

    im counting the days son you dont have the sack to show up and fuk with me! today is day one ill see you about 430 remember map quest requires an iq of over 80 so if ya have trouble just let me know and ill point ya in the right direction little feller

    BamaBrando

    FBJ, its the only one you have, so I can see why that CBS trophy means so much to you. The main thing is, it will always be remembered as being vacated, or with an asterisk. Probably one of the most controversial NCs ever won, hands down.

  18. 23
    FinebaumJunkie

    If that happens, then we will deal with it. And don’t be ashamed that you can’t even get college footballs biggest prize right, even if it is only three letters. But for now, as well as the past couple of months….still champions here. No asterisk, no vacated title. B…..C…..S, thought I would spell it real slow for you. Got it? Good. And Bamatruth, why dont you just hop in crimsonites piece of $hit on his way here? That way I can put both your f@ggot asses in the ground at once.

  19. 24
    FinebaumJunkie

    I’m sure we will pick this back up shortly, so I am gonna get me some shut eye. Everyone have a good night, cept for the two dead men walking. I got something real nice for you two. OK, one clue….It will fit in my hand and will put your sorry asses out of misery. For good. Sweet dreams.

    FBJ, you’re an absolute moron. You picked the right team to latch on to. Grow up and get back to us when you become a rational human being.

    bamatruth77

    lolfbj ur a pussy im bettin you NEVER show! and threatening murder on the internet is a felony you double dip shiit no worries tho I own guns too so gas up your prius and come on u tree huggin cum dump!

    13andCounting

    FBJ is getting a little testy….

    I guess when you know, deep down, that your team’s (Auburn) success is bogus and you get called on it…..A natural response is to lash out and threaten murder. Okay, the murder part is a little overboard, but what else would you expect from your typical “logical” Auburn fan?

  23. 31
    BamaBrando

    Dang FBJ comes on a Bama board to troll, and he ends up getting mad and making threats. He is like a rabid dog backed in a corner. Dude, it is just a game, even if Auburn does get hammered, you trying to fight everybody won’t change it. Just enjoy your SCB trophy, and be proud. You earned it the proper Auburn way, under scrutiny and scandal.

  24. 32
    FinebaumJunkie

    I’m not the one that threatened. I’m not mad. When I feel like I’m being threatened, I react. And before the rest of you jump on your boys back, I strongly advise you to rethink. You think I’m stupid Bamatruth? I know if I come to your house and blow a hole in your head, yeah thats murder. I do thank you for providing your info tho, at least ya got more guts than your buddy. Still a stupid move though. Now, setting up a meeting place to do this, I like my chances of doing what I have to do better that way. Bamatruth, I don’t care how many guns you have. Alls I need is one.

    bamatruth77

    lol damn fuk butts junkie took you a long time to pop your ol mans herpes blisters today! anywho u got the meeting place and time to come at your choosing! u aint shit til ya show up, if u have a gun and are 1/16 as bad ass as u think you are,then location shouldnt matter to a bad mudda fukka such as urself! if u need gas money just pimp out ya mom!

    FinebaumJunkie

    I don’t have to do that. Your mamma is already on my payroll. You might want to tell her that she needs to shower tonite. The three guys that gangbanged her last night complained that she smelled like fish pulled in off the Japan coast.

    Notice, how FBJ deflected from providing a meeting place…..

    Auburn fans are good at deflecting.

    You and I both know them boys aint going to do shyt. If they want to meet, I’ll leave it to them to decide, unless you want to come along too.

    FinebaumJunkie

    And thats all you are going to do as well boy. You will be glad to know your mom said the reason you didnt get any money is because she was raped and considers you a bastard, even almost aborted you. And for the record, I said before several times I’m near the Bessemer/McCalla area, I did that before you posted your address on a blog /entertainment site. If that is your address that is. I thought that addy looked familiar, I think I have seen it wrote on the mens room at several truck stops above a glory hole. You really want to meet me? We can set something up I’m sure. I’ll be happy to make your moms wanted abortion of you a late term reality.

    It wouldn’t do any good to give you my address a$$hole as I live in Mexico and everybody on here knows it. And they don’t take food stamps for bus fare anyway so how in the hell would you get here, dumba$$? What’s more, my Cartel buddies would have your a$$ perforated 250 or so times before you got halfway across the bridge. Only a dumber than phuck SOB starts making threats and appointments to kick a$$ on the internet, cause you don’t know who the hell you’re phucking with. And if you piss off enough people, your IP address can be traced to your home address through your internet service, and we don’t even need Capstone Report to do it for us. All I have to do is ask my sister to tell her husband in the FBI to track it. I bet you feel real big telling everybody you live near Bessemer/McCalla. What the phuck a$$hole. There are only 1,000,000 people and 150,000 houses near Bessemer/McCalla. Real brave you are cum bank. You aren’t even worth my time to detour through the Birmingham area. But if I ever have reason to search your ass out, then you will certainly make the front page hanging from a limb on a dead tree at Toomers Corner with your dick in your mouth. RTR@

    FBJ is so tough! “Hey guys, if you want a piece of me, I live in the Alabama/Georgia area.”

    FBJ, if you are scared of meeting up with these guys then I would just shut up. You are looking more and more like p***y with each post.

    And please, enough with the “momma” rhetoric, its pathetic.

    Anyways, I’m sure you will have more to say and continue to support the stereotype of a typical Auburn fan. You are just another reason why Bama fans look down on you people.

    FBJ, ah he is all talk. He comes on a Bama board to troll and talk big and bad. Who goes around trying to pick a fight on the internet?

    Crimsonite, yeah real nice country you live in there hoss. Mass murder on a daily basis, drugs galore, and the entire place smells like a sweaty tire changer at Jiffy Lube. 13andstillgrowing, dude, I really dont have a problem with you, other than the random name play. Other than that, I really dont pay much attention to you. And Bamatruthless, you didnt get my memo? You know, the one where I kindly told you to F~CK OFF? HAHAHA, you go on ahead and poke your chest out. You are right, you have done your part. Now it’s my turn. See, thats the thing. I dont jump for anybody. It’s my turn and my game. I just have to ask you, how damn stupid are you really? You didnt post your address did you? Really? HAHA….. When I get good and damn ready, Imma head that way. When I’m ready. Although, I’m betting theres a 85-90 percent chance that when I roll up into that trailer park and knock on the door of that double wide, a elderly woman won’t know what the hell I’m talking about. Either way, I’ll find out. When I’m ready.

    And Brandy, do some back tracking. Granted I bring you fellers a annoying presence, my goal isnt to “pick a fight on the internet”, now ask yourself, who goes around calling people c0cksuckers on the internet? It’s ok though. I get it.

    It’s one thing to call each other names, but it is another to threaten to beat people up. There is a difference. You know, sticks and stones and all that.

    Unfortunately dumba$$, the average human lifespan is only about 80 years, so you won’t live long enough to be READY TO. What a phucking copout. And you don’t know a phucking thing about Mexico a$$hole, just like the other 99.99% of the people in this country. As for murder, you can blame the publicity on the phucking sensationalizing US Media. The Cartel wars encompass only a few cities and the murder rates for Mexico are probably lower than any of the US’s top 25 metro areas. As for drugs, if you bastards in the US didn’t buy so gawddamn much, then there wouldn’t be a market or a problem with it in Mexico. What’s more, less than 10% actually comes from Mexico. It passes through on its way from Columbia, Guatemala, Belize, etc. Nothing smells more appealing than the downtown area of any Mexican town or city with the streets lined with street vendors, cooking and selling their food. And I’ll tell you one gawddamn thing right now. Mexico is a lot more free than this country. The US is just one damn baby step away from from becoming a phucking Fascist State with a gawddamn rule, regulation, ordinance or law governing every possible facet of your life. You can’t even slap your wife if you catch her in bed with another man or you’ll get hit with a domestic violence charge and lose your right to vote and to bear arms. This place is bull$hit. I live in an American style house that would cost me $4000 a month over here and I pay 6000 pesos which is $480. A New York Strip, Porterhouse or Ribeye steak costs 75 pesos or $6 a kilo. A kilo is 2.2lbs so that’s $2.72 a pound for what you pay $14 a pound here; and the meat over there does not have steroids or preservatives in it. There’s so much more, I could write a book on it. The phucking people over here know nothing about the rest of the world. They visit someplace for one week in their whole lives and suddenly they’re gawddamn cultural experts. And if you think the legal system over here is so much better; then you obviously aren’t one of the 100,000 or so innocent victims who have been wrongly convicted and locked up for most of, if not all of their lives. You’re obviously not one of the Federal prisoners who can be and have been locked away and held indefinitely without formal charges under some phucking obscure Federal statute. I love both countries, but I’ll tell you right now that I am sick of what the US has come too since 1960, and I will never live here again. RTR!
