Recapping Tide’s second scrimmage, previewing final week of spring ball

Alabama wide receiver Derek Kief (No. 81) in positional drills before first scrimmage at Bryant-Denny Stadium: Stephen M. Smith - Touchdown Alabama Magazine

Alabama head coach Nick Saban noticed a different vibe to his defensive front in the Crimson Tide’s second scrimmage of the spring on last week. He told the media that the unit showed more “juice” in generating pressure, forcing turnovers and holding the offense to field goals.

Despite his pleasant attitude toward the front seven, Saban still demands more from Alabama’s secondary when it comes to being disciplined against wide receivers and making crisp tackles. Offensively, the Tide continues to be balanced. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and wide receivers coach Michael Locksley have challenged quarterbacks and receivers to showcase excellence and both position groups responded during the two exhibitions before A-Day.

Yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine was live Monday on The Way It Is, recapping the Tide’s second scrimmage and previewing the final week of spring ball in preparation for Saturday.
