Alabama spring game showcase for Hurts, young backfield

It's not in Nick Saban's nature to dwell on anything for very long, but even the ultimate live-in-the-moment coach has had a hard time shaking Alabama 's last-second 35-31 loss to Clemson in this year's College Football Playoff National Championship Game. You look at the Clemson game, and our really good players didn't play very well. "It didn't enhance his development and sometimes later in the year when people played us in a way where we needed to be able to throw the ball, we may not have been efficient as we would have liked to have been". While he emerged as a surprise during his freshman season previous year, Alabama fans know what to expect from the rising sophomore.

"I felt like if we had played to our strengths as a team, we would win", Saban said about the title game. That's probably our fault as coaches because we protected him, instead of developed him as a young player. Scarbrough has been making strong progress throughout the spring after suffering a leg injury in the National Championship game, but Alabama will take the cautious route with him regardless and keep him fresh until the start of fall camp. I don't know what it was. Lane Kiffin accepted the job at Florida Atlantic and did not coach against Clemson. "I don't know", Kiffin said.

Family of Robert Godwin reacts to Steve Stephens' death
Robert Godwin Sr ., is being remembered as a wonderful person who taught his entire family about forgiveness. Stephens reportedly fled and state troopers initiated a pursuit. "Period", Cleveland's police chief said.

He also didn't blame the switch of offensive coordinators before the game. Nick Saban is one of the best head coaches in college football, but he'll be 66 years of age on Halloween. He's a gifted runner, so much so that even slight improvements in his passing game will go a long way in opening up opposing defenses and allowing the ground game and Tide's offense, in general, to thrive. "We really scored 17 against Washington (not counting a defensive touchdown)". So, what's that have to do with the offensive coordinator? "We want to be more pro style as we were, with a mix of a spread". "It's unfortunate, but it is what it is".

The 2017 Alabama Crimson Tide football spring game, known commonly and promoted as A-Day around Tuscaloosa, is being held Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Jeudy had a big game as well, catching five passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns. Saban, the self-appointed commissioner, can "manipulate my way to whichever side of the room I like", an ode to his true attitude toward what the scoreboard reads. "We've done a lot of good things on offense the last few years". It's just not really how I do it.
