| FTBL Saban comments on today's scrimmage...



Here are some summarized comments from Coach Saban on this afternoon's scrimmage...

-Overall, the scrimmage was an improvement over last week's.

-The defense tackled better this today, didn't give up as many big plays, forced some turnovers, and made less mental errors.

-They played "ok" on offense, but did not dominate like they needed to along the offensive line. That could be contributed to led weariness.

-John Parker Wilson threw a couple on INT's, but also threw a couple of TD passes. He had a good day.

-Terry Grant and Matt Caddell both played well today.

-On defense, Wallace Gilberry stood out on defense getting a couple of sacks and getting pressure.

-There were no significant injuries resulting from the scrimmage.

-Jamie Christensen has a strained quad and is listed at day-to-day. Leigh Tiffin was the main kicker today and just missed a 57 yard FG in the scrimmage (it had the distance, but was a little to the right).

-Nose tackle Brian Motley did have surgery on his hand and will be out 5-7 days. Lorenzo Washington and Josh Chapman are getting more reps while he is out.

-The team will have 2 days off to try and get their legs back a little bit and recover both physically and mentally.

-They will continue to work on fundamentals on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, then start game preparation on Friday.
