Practice report: Tide LBs fixing mental errors for matchup versus Arkansas State

Alabama linebacker Mack Wilson (No. 33) pressure Louisville QB Jawon Pass last week: Cedric Mason - TDA Magazine

Alabama football head coach Nick Saban will certainly accept a 51-14 win over Louisville; however, the perfectionist in an imperfect world still demands for his team to do things right. 

Ten penalties that equaled up to 111 yards for the Crimson Tide allowed the Cardinals to record two touchdowns, negating a shutout from Alabama.

While Saban spent much of the second half trying to keep his group focused on discipline, Monday’s practice was an indication of the coaching staff emphasizing the importance of maintaining composure in pressure moments.
