Countdown to Kickoff
Tide Football has Fourth Spring Practice


Thursday, March 02, 2006

The University of Alabama football team worked out for the fourth time this spring season, practicing for approximately two hours in full pads.

"I thought practice went pretty well today," said head coach Mike Shula. "Marc Guillon had a good day except right at the end where he made a bad decision, threw an interception, but other than that he had a really good day. Unfortunately that's the nature of the position, you can't throw interceptions because that's all people remember and they affect the outcome of the game.

"The offensive line I thought protected really well. I thought both receivers had a good day, Keith (Brown) and DJ (Hall); Simeon Castille has had a real good spring practice; Charles Hoke did a nice job at the tight end spot; Chris Rogers as our corner did some nice things."

The team will continue its workouts on Friday with a full pad practice scheduled for 4:00 p.m. Saturday will be the sixth practice of the spring season which is scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
