Nick Saban Says Team Needs to Improve Consistency after Second Scrimmage
The Alabama football team wrapped up its second scrimmage of the fall on Saturday and improving consistency seems to be the theme from head coach Nick Saban.
Following that scrimmage which was interrupted by downpours in Tuscaloosa, Saban gave his assessment to reporters. He said the coaching staff is still looking for consistency from the running game and quarterback position. It's still a competition between three players to take the first snap against USC, and Saban said each guy brings a different skill set to the team.
It also sounds like there might be a high number of freshmen playing in 2016. Saban once again pointed the impact young players have been making in fall camp while reminding everyone that he doesn't care about age, just performance.
Beyond what Saban tells reporters, there isn't too much more information to share about the performance of the team through three weeks of practice. Saturday marked the second straight scrimmage that no stats were provided.
Alabama will now head into its final week of fall camp and practice four more times before the first game week arrives next Monday.
