The coach should be finishing up practice and addressing reporters here in a few minutes. We'll let you know the good stuff.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Two-minute warning here as we're about to start.
Chris. Forgive me for asking here. Maybe I'm just an idiot, but is there a page on BOL that list all the staff and their Twitter accounts? Thanks Chris. Keep dominating the sports websites bro. Huge fan.

Thanks Chris. As always, You Da man bro.
Saban: Great to get started today - really pleased with team chemistry and attitude. Very good summer. Best conditioning test results. Doesn't mean a better football player, but invested in improving.
Young team - key is learning to execute on a consistent basis. Lot of opportunities for young players to have a role on the team. How well they learn will determine how well the team develops.
Split practice good to have the young guys learn first-hand, get more reps and ease their anxiety. All young guys going today, so the pace can be catered to them.
Nothing new on one guy who hasn't reported. Hope to in the near future.
Blake Sims question, will get turns at quarterback. Might give a different option. Will likely split time between QB/RB.
Chris, are they giving you access to the younger guys tonight? Hope we can see some pics. Thanks.
I asked a question about two-a-days, Alabama will have some this year
Saban - we haven't done that since Michigan State. Players can't recover enough for the afternoon, so Alabama's will be morning night. Meetings. etc. in between, and players have two meals. Avoid heat problems that way too.
Eddie Lacy did everything today. No issues.
Hasn't done a lot of cutting. That will be the next step.
No position experiments at this point.
Need to evaluate the new players, though, and to see if they're capable of having a role this year -- but he's comfortable with where the returning players are at.
Arie Kouandjio did better during the summer than expected. Hope he continues to progress and be ready to go for the first game, but that will be a day-to-day evaluation.
That's it. Look for a notebook later today.
Sorry if I missed it. Do we know the one guy who has not reported?
