Alabama Football: Nick Saban Recaps Second Scrimmage


The Alabama Crimson Tide held their second scrimmage inside Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday and Coach Nick Saban addressed the media immediately after it.

It’s getting down to crunch time for kickoff with Wisconsin and the players won’t have too many more opportunities to shine in practice. Let’s see what Saban had to say.

Hopefully, the reports from today’s scrimmage are more positive. Looks like Coach saw some improvement.

According to some there, Coker came out a bit rough to start the day but settled down as the scrimmage went on. After Saban had a “calm chat” with them, things started to click a little better.

Two different folks told me that the defense was stingy and tough today. They were making plays all over the field and did well against the pass and run.

RUN THE BALL!! We may see that a little more this season. Saban has said he doesn’t think the Tide will need the quarterback to win the game. Let the defense and running game carry them. Make some throws to keep the defense honest.

Anytime you get a mention from Saban in the press conference, you did well.

There’s your breakdown of how many snaps the quarterbacks got today.

One Twitter user said Ragland was mauling folks today.

Saban is getting tired and needs a night to recharge. Maybe he and Miss Terry can go grab a bite to eat and relax. That probably won’t happen.

There’s your kick returners if you are wondering.

Goal met. Good job team.

Drake must be getting over him minor injury since he is taking some hits. Good to see.

Many seem to think that Coker and Morris are tied at the top after today. Only a few people know for sure and they are in Tuscaloosa.

Y’all thought we would get the secret info?

Lots of freshmen getting shoutouts. Expect to see them this year. Some more than others

Well, let’s look at the stats and compare. Never mind.
