As for his divorce from UA, Lawrence was one of four players named Wednesday by Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban as having "violated some type of team rule or policy and were not invited back on our team." Lawrence disputed that account in this report by the Hattiesburg American, saying "That's something that isn't true."

Departing Tide player Alonzo Lawrence is headed to Southern Miss - The Bama Beat Go ahead and prepare yourselves for the barrage of "Nick Saban is EVIL" posts from our rivals (and non-rivals who just have a really hard time keeping their smug yankee noses out of our business). Lawrence was, of course, one of the four players "not invited back" to the team for disciplinary reasons. Estes talked with Lawrence's high school coach, Al Jones, who said his dismissal "wasn't anything major," and tied it to things like being late to team meetings. "Hopefully, this has been a learning experience for him," Jones said, "and he'll mature and go on to have a good college career." Being late to team meetings might not be "major" to most (though I'm sure in the coming onslaught of "OMG NICK SATAN CHEATS HIS PLAYERS OUT OF SCHOLARSHIPS" it won't be major), but if one finds themselves on a team led by a coach who stresses fundamentals and discipline to the degree that Saban does, and who has proven over and over again he's going to play the guys who do things his way over the ones who don't even if it is a downgrade at talent and game experience (Mike McCoy over Keith Brown, Marquis Johnson over Lionel Mitchell, etc.), then I'm fairly certain one should make sure to not let the little things pile up. Besides, if he really thought he hadn't gotten a fair shake, he could have appealed.

"Well, we had a great offseason, a great spring practice. I liked the attitude of our players, I think we made a lot of improvement. Greg McElroy established himself as a leader on the offensive side of the ball, and that was probably a good thing. Defensively, we were pretty consistent in how we played. Every team that you have coming out of spring, you still have a few issues with. We need to continue to develop our offensive line and probably overall chemistry on offense. The goal is the same: To be a dominant team. But sometimes the motivation is a little bit different. What kind of inspiration they have will be a real key to how successful they can be."

"I think from an image standpoint," Saban said, "and the fact that this year's game's on ESPN, it would have a tremendous national exposure image-building probability for all of us if we had a great showing at the spring game again. I know we have set the standard for what spring games are, and people send us information all the time with all this promotional stuff they're doing to try to beat us on spring game attendance. It's amazing. Like it's an arms race."

"I will watch the game today if I ever get home. I have people to talk to when I get out of there. They're the ones I really want to talk to, incidentally, the recruits that were here. (As opposed to, ya know, reporters) I really want to talk to them. (Smiles) I guess my priorities aren't what they need to be."
