Countdown to Kickoff
Tide Football Continues Preparation for South Carolina


Wednesday, September 14, 2005

The Crimson Tide football team continued its preparation for the South Carolina Gamecocks today at the Hank Crisp practice facility, throwing in some simulated crowd noise for the second straight day.

"We had the crowd noise out there just for the offense basically to get used to some degree to what it'll be like on Saturday, especially for some young guys that will be traveling and will be playing their first SEC road game," said head coach Mike Shula.

Working out in full pads, the Tide worked on various situations in both yesterday's and today's practices.

"We had two pretty good practices yesterday and today," said Shula.  "Today it was a little bit hotter; it was good that our guys fought through it.   We did more situations today, like two-minute.  Today we did a little more third down stuff."

Alabama will have one final workout tomorrow before traveling to Columbia, SC on Friday where the team will have a brief walk-through.
