Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough has seen his workload build since the start of practice. "He's sort of gaining confidence," Saban said of Scarbrough, who was knocked out of the national title game with a leg injury. "Our goal for Bo is by the end of spring, he's fully confident that he can do everything he needs to do. Whether he ever scrimmages or is really something that we're not that concerned about."

Nick Saban may have a running QB in Jalen Hurts, but that doesn't mean he wants to push it this spring. "I don't think it's worth getting a guy hurt in practice trying to prove the point that we're going to make them a little tougher, especially at the quarterback position," Saban said. "We try to do it with some controlled drills so that they do get hit. We really have limited the quarterback runs in the spring and are really focused on trying to develop a better passing game."

Alabama DL Da'Ron Payne is not only one of the biggest players on the team at 313 pounds, he's also one of the strongest. He told reporters he hit 545 pounds on the bench press and 600-something on squats. "Most (teammates) don't believe I can do it until they see it," he said.

Alabama DB Minkah Fitzpatrick said that thinking about the Clemson game at first was upsetting, processing the loss and knowing that many of his teammates wouldn't be around next season. "The day after," he said. "I watched the game a couple of times, and then I just had to switch my mindset and focus on a new team and new season."
