Like usual, we'll give you the good stuff ...
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Not much good stuff:)
good deal. Thanks Chris
OK - getting ready to start here ...
Hopes everyone had a happy holiday, and will have a good New Year.
Happy to get everyone back. A couple of guys had weather delays (East and Dallas were the places of issues).
Practice crucial since there are no games to kind of work through things. Some game prep has begun.
Injuries: Nothing new. Jones and Danzel both running on treadmills. Practice maybe next week. Both day-to-day.
Hope both players can get at least five practices in before the game.
Brian Vogler question - come along well this season.
How do you install game prep: They do a lot of stuff that you have to prepare for, and different adjustments. Probably good that we have a little more time. Really good defense, especially near the goal-line.
Golson question - guy is a really good player. Good athlete. Can extend plays. Doesn't just want to just take off. Anyone who doesn't think he's a good passer is missing the boat. Outstanding player. Improved as season has progressed.
Cooper attacks the ball - gone up and made some terrific catches going up and getting the ball. Has good ball judgement. it's not really something you can't really teach. Too many guys are too casual.
Question about Steen being overshadowed. Played really well. Older guys here tend to get the accolades. He and Cyrus, their time is coming. They'll be featured more next year and get more attention.
Dee Milliner question - has a really good understanding of what's expected of him, and knows if he doesn't do it the right way he corrects it before anyone says anything. Played really well for us.
Saban asked about Notre Dame students coming to help with tornado cleanup: Says a lot about their character, and what kind of person someone is. It was much appreciated.
Mal Moore question - Saban says he really likes working with him. Former coach who is very supportive. Have a great relationship with him. Doesn't remember ever having a disagreement with him.
That's it for now. Look for a big notebook later tonight.
Thanks for bringing the updates, Chris!
Thanks, Chris! Hope the injuries heal quickly!
Thanks Chris, as always...
