| FTBL CECIL HURT: Listen carefully to what Saban is saying



Cecil Hurt

It’s a point that’s been made before, but is worth making again. When Nick Saban holds a press conference, attentive listening is almost always rewarded.

Saban spoke after the Crimson Tide’s Saturday scrimmage at Bryant-Denny Stadium, and it wasn’t the details he gave about the practice that were revealing. It’s always good to get tidbits like “Terry Grant played well again” or “John Parker Wilson threw the ball well” or “Wallace Gilberry had a couple of sacks.” An accumulation of such observations can indicate which players are likely to play prominent roles once the Western Carolina game arrives and a working depth chart — at least for that game — is established.
