What can we expect from Alabama football?
Alabama football is looking to end spring practices with a strong spring game. After two scrimmages, the Crimson Tide now get to show how they look to fans.
You can only learn so much about a team during a spring scrimmage, but there is still valuable information to obtain. We will have a rough idea of the depth chart at this point in the season, and we can see the strengths and weaknesses of the roster. This will also be the first time to see some of Alabama football’s new stars, and the depth will be on display as the game heads into the fourth quarter.
So, what are some bold predictions for this year’s A-Day Game?
Jahmyr Gibbs will have 150 yards from scrimmage
Alabama should be healthy once again at running back, but Jahmyr Gibbs will be the new RB1 for the Crimson Tide. He is explosive as a running back, and his receiving skills are elite for his position. He will make some plays out of the backfield, and I expect him to have at least one explosive play to boost his stats. He won’t get a ton of touches, but I still have him going for 150 scrimmage yards.
Eli Ricks will get an interception
In spring games, you aren’t playing to win. You are playing to get better. That means that you can take risks to see what your players are capable of. This is why turnovers are not always a bad thing in this environment.
As a starting corner for Alabama football, Ricks will lock down some of the best receivers in the SEC. He’ll make some plays in his first game in front of fans for Alabama football.
Jalen Milroe wins MVP
Backup quarterbacks always play well against the second string in the A-Day Game. This will be another opportunity for Milroe to show his development as a passer. His rushing ability won’t be on display because of the format, but he will still get plenty of highlights and will win the MVP.
