Anybody Else Both Look Forward To and Dread Scrimmage Reports?

I would be a charter member of that particular club! I know you have to do it, but gee whiz....!

I just crave the knowledge of how the team is progressing. I hate to see the injuries but there is nothing that can be done about it really. We just have to confide in the offseason program knowing that these guys are supremely conditioned. Just ready for the season to start man...amped up for some Tide Rollin' for sure!

I am one of those who look forward to reading the daily articles/blogs but also hold my breath when I first open it, wondering if there are any additional injuries, guys in the transfer portal, etc.

I know I can't control what happens in practice or games, but I am addicted to BAMA football and want the team to win #18; plus injuries have been a big issue the last few years. I hope this year's injuries will not be as bad and that the worst is over as far as injuries are concerned.

I agree. It seems like a major injury for every one, more often than not, an ILB...
Yep, if this keeps up, trouble we might have recruiting LB`s won`t have anything to do with depth or anything, it`ll be that it looks like it`s hazardous to your health if you go to Alabama to play LB! Bad juju.

Well, we've used "thinness" in recruiting, so...

I used to look forward to the scrimmages. Now I dread them.
The injury bug caused me to think today that the staff may be limiting participation of some of the veteran players particularly those that have previous injuries such as Terrell Lewis and Anfernee Jennings. This would have the benefit of giving more reps to the younger guys who need the game experience.

A character of CNS's great teams was the ability to dominate the LOS and stop the run. It isn't rocket science to see that couple key losses on the defensive front would ultimately make several SEC games on the schedule highly competitive.

Most of us shudder to think of more season ending injuries to come.

We just moved Chardarius Townsend to RB this week from WR after the Sanders injury. If Ford is seriously injured we will have 4 RB's counting Chardarius.

I went to BOL to see if they have posted any scrimmage notes and they had a video of warm-ups. They had video posted of the pre-scrimmage drills and in the ILB drills Christian Harris was # 2 in line followed by Benton and the others. They also had a premium article with notes of the pre-scrimmage with a photo of Christian Harris. I would find it hard to figure that Christian has come in never playing ILB and reporting in the summer and he is leading the race for the other spot but Saban has started a true freshman at ILB before.

Travis Reier just confirmed Harris was running with the 1's in pre-game drills and 7-on-7.

Lets hope Ford is ok, and that we have NO MORE injuries...………..And If Christian Harris wins the other ILB spot, he must be a pretty special talent

Harris has the talent to play right now, but when an ILB is out of position in your defense it spells disaster. I believe, but am a lot more worried than I was when fall camp began.

Yeah, it is a concern...………..but you never know. He might be a surprise.
