Tide fans are longing to return to the "Moose"calls that went out through Bryant-Denny Stadium when Greg McLain had a rare rush in 2002. McLain was lauded for his blocking ability as one of the keys to Bama?s SEC-second-best 213 rushing yards per game, starting six games as one of only two true freshmen to play that year (the other was DeMeco Ryans).

Alabama's football team will have something of a rehearsal Friday as Coach Mike Shula takes the Crimson Tide to Bryant-Denny Stadium for a mock game. It is not a game or even a scrimmage. Instead it is a partly instruction on game-day aspects (where the players will go for pre-game warm-ups, sidelines organization for players and coaches, etc., and partly practice of special situations, such as the punt after a safety and some other special situations, many of them relative to the kicking game.
