The Alabama football team put on the pads for the first time this spring, practicing for two hours on Wednesday on the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields. The practice was the third of the season for the Crimson Tide. Alabama will meet one addition time this week on Friday before taking a week off for spring break (March 24-28). The Tide then resumes spring practice with the fifth of 15 spring sessions on Monday, March 31.
Head coach Nick Saban spoke to the media following the practice and seemed to have “called” out the younger players on his roster.
“I think that immature people and immature players sort of think that life’s going to give into their demands. Mature people know that I have to give into life’s demands. If you really want to advance in this world, you’ve got to kind of do what you need to do to be successful, and most of the time that gets defined by somebody else. Like your boss he defines the expectations for you, so you want to advance, you need to do a good job,” said Saban.
Alabama’s 2014 A-Day Game is scheduled for Saturday, April 19, at 1 p.m. (CDT) inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.
