Two interesting tidbits: jerrell Harris has been working at the Money spot in dime and hightower has worked at DE in pass-rush situations
"Every quarterback knows, your best friend is the offensive line," McElroy said. "From left tackle to right tackle, you got to take care of those guys. One of the ways we try to do it is we take the offensive linemen out - maybe once after the spring, once before the fall. Just set the record straight that I'm taking care of them, they better take care of me."
McElroy did the same in high school, though he wound up with a $700 bill for an all-you-can-eat Brazilian steakhouse.
"I don't think I'll be making that mistake again," he said.
"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."
At practice: OG mike Johnson didn't practice. He rode the bike. I'll found out what's up from Saban later
Running back Mark Ingram, the Crimson Tide's leading returning rusher, was in a black jersey riding a bike. Ingram's exact injury is not clear, but for him to miss a scrimmage, figure it had to be fairly serious.
