Crimson Tide Ready for A-Day



April 15, 2010

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The University of Alabama football team went through its final practice of the spring on Thursday afternoon in shells at the Thomas-Drew Practice Facility as they finish preparations for the Golden Flake A-Day Game.

The Crimson Tide's A-Day Game is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Bryant-Denny Stadium and will be broadcast nationally by ESPN with Rece Davis, Craig James, Mark May and Wendi Nix calling the action.

"We had two good days of work this week," Alabama head coach Nick Saban said after Thursday's practice. "We were pleased the players sort of stayed with it. We feel like it is important that we have purposeful practices each and every day we go out there. It is important to improve and important to get better.

Alabama's A-Day Game will be the 15th practice of the spring and the final practice time as a team until fall camp starts in August.
