Alabama’s defense had a couple of mental errors in its spring game, but everyone points to Nick Saban chewing out Ga’Quincy “Koolaid” McKinstry on the field.
“KOOLAID! Don’t walk on the Got d-mn field!”

It was a short moment of embarrassment; however, the talented freshman turned in a great spring.
Coach Saban spoke about him to reporters, and he had a strong A-Day performance. McKinstry recorded three tackles (one for loss), one pass breakup, one interception, and one fumble recovery. As a five-star from Birmingham, he has the potential to become one of the best outside cornerbacks of the Saban era. McKinstry has a lot of confidence in his game, and Saban normally chews out players he sees greatness in. This can be said about Tony Brown, Ronnie Harrison, Eddie Jackson, Reuben Foster, and Kenyan Drake. Saban wants to see McKinstry uphold the standard, and the alumnus of Pinson Valley High School looks to do it.
On Wednesday, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine broke down Saban’s exchange with McKinstry via In My Own Words.
The baton has been passed to Koolaid to be great. Will he respond well to the call? This fall should provide the answer.
