THE GOLDEN FLAKE A-DAY GAME BRINGS END TO SPRING PRACTICE

The University of Alabama football team and head coach Nick Saban wrapped up spring practice today with the 2014 Golden Flake A-Day Game at Bryant-Denny Stadium.  Alabama opened spring practice on Saturday, March 15, and held 14 practices through Thursday, April 17, leading up to today’s A-Day game. The Crimson Tide also held two scrimmages here in Bryant-Denny Stadium this spring (April 5 and April 12) in preparation for today’s game.

WALK OF FAME CEREMONY HONORED 2013 TEAM CAPTAINS

The annual Walk of Fame ceremony took place Saturday at 11:15 a.m. at Denny Chimes. The 2013 permanent team captains – quarterback AJ McCarron, linebacker C.J. Mosley and wide receiver Kevin Norwood – had their hand prints and foot prints placed in cement at the base of Denny Chimes.

A-DAY GAME FORMAT

The format for the A-Day game was much like a normal game, with a few minor variations primarily regarding the game clock. The game consisted of four 15-minute quarters with a running clock. The clock stopped only following scoring plays, penalties, and changes of possession. Regular clock rules were used during the final minutes of the second quarter and the fourth quarter. Halftime was 12 minutes in duration. Players wearing black jerseys (quarterbacks and injured players) were considered “tag-off” and were not treated as live players. The kickoffs and kick returns were “tag-off” plays as well, with the ball spotted at the 30-yard line.
