I'm not exactly a fan of spring games. I have nothing against them, I just don't typically watch them. Even if I'm starved for football action, the spring game just doesn't do a whole lot for me. That being said, I tend to value Alabama's spring game a bit more than the others for one simple reason.
Nick Saban treats it like an actual game. You'll see plenty of schools come up with weird scoring rules, but Saban is old fashioned. It's just two teams out there playing football against one another.
Of course, even then, it's still a scrimmage, but scrimmages sometimes offer interesting moments. Like this touchdown pass from freshman QB Tua Tagovailoa to Jerry Jeudy. I think it's safe to say this isn't how new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll designed this play to work.
Part of Daboll's plan with the Alabama offense was to do a better job of stretching the field, and they're certainly doing that early in the spring game.
And whether it's just a scrimmage or not, you know the secondary will be hearing from Nick Saban at the end of the day.
