Alabama’s 2016 Spring Football Schedule is Annouced
So much for an offseason. Just two months after Alabama walked off the field in Glendale with its 16th national championship, the team will return to the practice field to get started on another season.
The Crimson Tide announced the spring practice schedule this week and it will all get underway on March 11. The team will get together once before taking a week off for spring break. Once they return, players will practice 13 more times before the A-Day game on April 16.
Here's a look at the complete practice schedule.
Tide 99.1 will have practice coverage, including photos and videos, as the team turns the page to the 2016 season for the first time. Nick Saban will have to replace another starting quarterback along with Heisman Trophy-winner Derrick Henry in the backfield.
On defense, Alabama lost linebacker Reggie Ragland and defensive linemen A'Shawn Robinson, Jarran Reed, and D.J. Pettway. The team returns a lot of talent once again, and it will be interesting to see which players take advantage of the new opportunity.
