The Alabama crimson tide had their spring game last Saturday. Much like every college football team the spring game is a chance for the fans of each school’s football team to see most of what the team is working with so far in the season. The raining College Football Playoff national champions weren’t in the form we’re used to seeing them in as the crimson tide offense looked to be a no-show in effort.
Teams typically use the spring game to get their early enrollment athletes and players who aren’t used to playing in the big lights some playing experience playing in front of a crowd. Some crowds are larger than others of course. The university of Alabama had 76,212 screaming fans in Bryant-Denny stadium Saturday afternoon. The final score was a bit underwhelming as the White team defeated the Crimson squad to a score of 7-3.
The game saw a plethora of fun defensive plays in the secondary and even some surprisingly hard hits for a spring game from the defensive line. The odd of the day was how off each quarterback seemed to be with their rhythm. Tide quarterbacks were 34-68 on the day for 428 yards. As for the Crimson team, some throws on the day were alarmingly inaccurate.
The small dose of inconsistent offense and low scoring had some people buzzing around the state about their worries about the offense going forward. And if there’s any words of advice that seasoned Alabama fans know to tell to other fans is this phrase “Relax, our coach is Nick Saban.” Saban is one of the best minds in either college or professional football. If there is one thing he knows it is how to prepare his players for future opponents.Alabama was successful in not showing their hand to future opponents by creating an almost scary bad offense at times. Crimson tide fans can rest easy knowing this is exactly what he wants out of his spring games. Excitement to see players wearing that crimson and white, and for no team to get film on what they might use come early September. It’s a successful coaches dream.
