Alabama Football: Spring Practice Scrimmage #2 news, injury report & stats

Alabama Crimson Tide football coach Nick Saban said today’s scrimmage showed “some improvement” from the first scrimmage for the first units.

The team was “crisper” and “faster” in play today, according to the Alabama football coach. However, he said the team “had some work to do, especially with the depth on our team.” Saban said the young players are “enthusiastic” and working hard. Saban said he is not “disappointed with where we are at, but certainly not satisfied either.”

Saban praised quarterback A.J. McCarron’s play and said the offense improved its effort at running the ball giving the team more balance. At least the first offense did. Saban said the second offensive line could not block the defense very well.

“I thought A.J. played well,” Saban said. “We didn’t start out well offensively, but we improved as we moved along. I think we ran the ball a little more effectively today.”

Saban said Jalston Fowler ran the ball better today and T.J. Yeldon gained some good experience in the scrimmage.

Saban also said the hitting “was a little crisper” today.

Saban mentioned the efforts of receivers DeAndrew White, Christion Jones and Kevin Norwood.

Overall, “the first offensive line did a nice job,” Saban said. “Defensively, the first unit played pretty well. A couple of situations they made mental errors in that cost them.”

    Hey Waste Of Time. Seems like you have a serious obssession with Alabama. Hell, I don’t blame you. If I was a fan of that pigshit school over in Lee County, I’d find somrthing better to do with my time too. In fact you poor bastards have too much free time on your hands – especially on Fall Saturdays when you have to turn the TV off early in disgust. Bwaa haww haww! You best go out and buy yourself a new nut cup, cause the way things are looking during the past 4 years and with the contract extension; Saban and Alabama are gonna kick your asses back to the stone age, A La Bear Bryant. Bwaa haww haww! RTR!

    If that’s the case then there is merit to the Barnturds ranting about Bama’s retarded mullet sidewalk fanbase. If you hate it here so much then go play on Roll Bama Roll or something. This is a private site. It doesn’t have to meet ESPN or New York Times standards. You bring nothing to the table bit worthless bullshit. CR should ban you. Guess this time of the year he needs the hits. How does it feel to be a laughing stock? RTR!
