Countdown to Kickoff
Shula Pleased With Team's Preparation for Auburn


Wednesday, November 17, 2004


The University of Alabama football team continued its preparation for the Auburn Tigers today and head coach Mike Shula was pleased with what he saw.

"I thought we had two pretty good days of practice," said Shula.  "The guys are moving around pretty good, getting an understanding of what Auburn's trying to do, getting a good feel for their personnel.  They've got a real good scheme, they've got really good guys executing their scheme, so we've got to be on it.  So far we've had two good days and hopefully we'll see that on Saturday."

The Tide has had two consecutive days of workouts and will have one final practice on Thursday before a final Friday walk-through.

The Tide and the Tigers are scheduled for a 2:34 p.m. CT kickoff which will be televised nationally on CBS.
