Day 2 Press Conference
MIAMI SHORES, Fla.- The Alabama football team returned to the Barry University campus for its second practice while in the Miami area. The Crimson Tide trained for two hours in shells as they continue preparations for top-ranked Notre Dame.
"It has been great for us to get out in this weather," senior tight end Michael Williamssaid. "Right now it is all about learning to adapt to this environment. Coach Saban is pushing us really hard and we are pushing ourselves so we have one more practice to get ready for the game."
Alabama got its day started with another press conference, this time it was the defense that was put in front of the cameras. Defensive coordinator Kirby Smart was joined by defensive lineman Damion Square, defensive backs Robert Lester and Dee Milliner, and linebackers Nico Johnson and C.J. Mosley.
