Alabama Practices Indoors While Ida Overtakes Tuscaloosa
The Alabama Crimson Tide practiced inside the Hank Crisp Indoor Practice Facility on the Monday ahead of its Week 1 matchup with the Miami Hurricanes. Alabama released its first depth chart of the season today, giving Alabama fans an idea of who they will see on Saturday.
The Tide will play on Sept. 4 at 2:30 p.m. CT in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Alabama returns just three starters from its national championship winning 2020 offense. The Tide replaces prolific coordinator in Steve Sarkisian and quarterback Mac Jones but expectations are still sky-high for the Alabama offense.
"I think the realistic approach is we have a lot of new players on offense, and it's a work in progress to get all these players to develop to be productive and consistent performers," said Nick Saban to the media today. "We're working hard on that. The coaches are doing a good job of that. We've got new faces and a lot of positions, which creates a lot of opportunity for people. How they manage it in the game, how they can take it to the game, how they prepare for the game, those are all question marks that get answered when you play a game."
