Yup yup.

Days 'til the A-Day Game: 15
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 148

Today marks the midway point of spring practice, which will be showcased by the first scrimmage under Coach Saban at 1:30pm at Bryant-Denny Stadium. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty excited. It really sounds like the guys are improving. People are finally figuring out why we hired this guy.

“It’s intense as hell," Britt said. “I don’t know if I am supposed to say that, but it’s true." Practice has apparently picked up quite a bit - maybe moreso than any of us knows. Cecil does a short bio on Justin Britt, and it's pretty damn detailed. Good read.

The College Beat details what the players are feeling about the first spring practice and what should be expected.

Didn't realize it, but the scrimmage is closed, not only to the public, but to reporters as well. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Another surprise is that Coach Saban is expecting everyone to read signals from the field today, just like in regular game action. This comes after just 7 practices under the new regime. Looks like they're being thrown in the fire early on here.

Here's a pretty good description of Coach Saban's created linebacker / defensive end hybrid - the jack linebacker.

In non-football news, it was announced yesterday that Alabama will be playing Georgetown in the Big East/SEC invitational on Dec 5th in Birmingham. It is the second game in a double header - the first game is Auburn vs West Virginia. Sounds like a good RPI game to me. Also good for the national radar. Here's hoping we can actually win that one.
