Roll Tide, folks. January 9th may seem like last night, but time never made an exception for victory celebrations and the 2012 season makes its de facto debut this afternoon in Bryant-Denny Stadium with the annual A-Day game.
An absolutely gorgeous day is expected in Tuscaloosa with temperatures in the mid-to-high 70's and not a cloud in the sky. For those not lucky enough to be in T'town today, you can catch the game on CSS or ESPN. Kick-off is at 2:00 p.m. CST. Click here for the rosters for both squads.
We'll have our usual post-game analysis here at RBR, but until then keep your eye on a variety of key areas, including tailback, H-back, the back-up nose guards, Sam linebacker, the nickel formation, and the kicking game. Do note that the format today will pit the first team offense against the first team defense, so we should have a very lively scrimmage.
Chime in here with all of your thoughts and comments on the 2012 A-Day Game.
