First look at 5-star Alabama DB Tony Brown practicing, taking instruction from Nick Saban | AL.com

Brown was paired with rising sophomore Eddie Jackson for a few of the drills. He showed some of the speed that made him one of the top corners in the nation last year.

Oklahoma's Charles Tapper on Sooners' spring swagger: 'Whole defense just dominated Alabama' | AL.com

"The Sugar Bowl gave us a good boost," defensive end Charles Tapper told ESPN.com. "Knowing we kinda dominated Alabama's offensive line, that the whole defense just dominated Alabama a little bit -- just a great way to come into the 2014 season."  Alabama did outgain Oklahoma 516 to 429. The Tide passed for more yards than the Sooners (387 to 348) and also outrushed them (129 to 81).

I get it, we lost, but I really hate it when facts get in the way of a good narrative.
