Typical Tuesday As Tide Prepares
Alabama appears to be at full strength, certainly as close to full strength as any team could expect to be after nearly a month of football practice. Obviously, Dakota Ball who had an appendectomy earlier this month, is not included in that list of likely players. And Coach Nick Saban said that freshman tailback Alvin Kamara, who was injured early in fall camp, had not been able to get enough repetitions to be competitive for a job.
No one was in a black jersey and Saban had said earlier that linebacker Tana Patrick and defensive lineman Wilson Love (whose injuries have not been disclosed) would be back in an unlimited capacity today.
Alabama is going to lose a man following the Virginia Tech game Saturday. Not a football player, but rather a member of the media relations department. Skip Powers, who is the primary media relations representative for softball and soccer and also works with football will be moving to UCLA.
From time-to-time there are interesting practice visitors. Former Tide running back Marlin "Scooter" Dyess (1957-59) was watching with his grandson Monday. Jimmy Koikos, owner of the Bright Star Restaurant in Bessemer, was a Tuesday visitor.
