Alabama football coach Nick Saban treats each mishap differently and after offensive guard Alphonse Taylor was arrested for driving under the influence on Sunday morning, he chose to suspend him indefinitely. While Taylor may miss some practices and possibly a couple of games, he has responded in a mature manner. The 6-foot-5, 345-pound senior took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to reflect on the issue and how he intends to improve as a person.
Isolated events does not define ones character…..
God continue to watch over me.

Taylor started all 15 games at right guard last season, guiding Derrick Henry to 2,219 rushing yards and 28 touchdowns on 395 carries. He returns as the lone senior on the offensive line, and one who’s been on three Southeastern Conference championship team (2012, 2014-15) and two national championship teams (2012, 2015) since arriving at Tuscaloosa in 2012 as a four-star recruit.
