Stats From Alabama's 2013 A-Day Game

Stacy Revere

How did they do against some of the toughest competition they'll face all year?

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle”

- Sun Tzu, The Art of War

The 2013 rendition of A-Day is in the books. I'll present some raw stats and an initial opinion or two here, and we'll follow that up later with some more in-depth analysis.

These stats are from www.rolltide.com and www.al.com.

Initial Opinions.

I think that attendance figure is a little optimistic. I was there, and thought the crowd looked about 70k, and was probably down to ~40-50k by halftime.

Rather pedestrian performance from AJ (certainly by his own standards), and the other quarterbacks looked pretty bad, to be honest. Blake Sims took a huge step back today, and Morris looked better, in my opinion. Maybe that's why he got to pass 18 times?

I'm surprised by the relative success of throwing the ball, vice running the ball, in all three scrimmages thus far. Are we a passing team this year?
