Let the countdown begin.

With Signing Day, spring football, and A-Day behind us, it's time to start looking ahead to the start of Alabama's 2017 season and it's not too far off. Thursday marks 100 days until the Crimson Tide takes on Florida State on the opening Saturday of the season.

That game is shaping up to be one of the most important regular season games in college football as the Tide and Seminoles are practically a lock for top-5 rankings. There's even a chance that this game could pit No. 1 versus No. 2 by the time it kicks off on September 2 in Atlanta. The game will be played inside the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium assuming that construction gets completed in time.

Earlier today, the Unversity of Alabama released this short hype video to mark 100 days.

The next month will be quiet but things will start picking up in July when SEC Media Days returns to Hoover.
