Countdown to Kickoff
Crimson Tide Football Team Back at Work



Oct. 12, 2009

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The No. 2 ranked Alabama football team worked for a little more than an hour in shells inside the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility Monday afternoon as preparations begin for Saturday’s game against No. 22 South Carolina.

“There is no rest for the weary around here and we are playing a very good team in South Carolina,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said at his weekly press conference today.  “The key thing is the players have to realize there are a lot of good teams. We have to re-focus, re-center our energy and go to the next game. The last game was a great win, but the next game is the only thing that really matters.”

Alabama’s 2009 homecoming game will kick off at 6:45 p.m. (CDT) this Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium and will be nationally televised by ESPN, with Brad Nessler, Todd Blackledge and Erin Andrews calling the action. The game can also be heard on the Crimson Tide Sports Network, with Eli Gold, Phil Savage and Barry Krauss describing the action.
