Two weeks ago, fans of Alabama football left Bryant-Denny Stadium pleased with its spring game.
The lone negative from the event was the offensive line. Alabama had a couple of guys injured, so a few young faces were presented an opportunity to show what they can do. It was a challenge to neutralize the experience up front on defense, but the offensive front did have some good moments. As it returns Emil Ekiyor and Pierce Quick in the fall, the Crimson Tide will have a strong first-team unit on the field.
The important thing for Nick Saban and Doug Marrone is getting the second-teamers playing with confidence and chemistry.
If the Tide can consistently protect Bryce Young, it will defend its crown as national champions.
Last week, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine discussed the offensive line via In My Own Words.
Will Alabama have a true freshman start on the line? Will Saban have his best starting five by fall camp?
All questions will be answered soon enough.
