The two teams last met in Tuscaloosa last season in the championship game of the NCAA Tournament regional hosted by the Crimson Tide. Alabama won the first game 5-2 and the after South Alabama worked its way through the losers bracket to the title game, won that matchup 6-0. Alabama went on to win the national championship.
Being from Baltimore, I live and breathe to hate the city of Pittsburgh. Everything about it. I hate Auburn, Cam Newton, Indian food, NASCAR, Cecil Newton, guys with Instagrams, dubstep, I think you get the point. I hate many things. But I hate two things above all else: Rain and The University of Tennessee
Neither cornerback John Fulton nor wide receiver Kevin Norwood have been participating in the Crimson Tide's offseason workout program, coach Nick Saban said Wednesday. Their respective statuses for spring practice, which begins March 16, is up in the air.
"Although his journey at Alabama is over for now, DJ is excited about the opportunities that may present themselves as he moves forward with his studies and personal growth.
"If somebody tells me we need to change, I say, 'Ok, but who should we hire? Saban? Well, Saban isn't going to come here.'"
Freshman shortstop Mikey White was 3-for-5 with two runs scored to record his second multi-hit game of the year. Freshman second baseman Kyle Overstreet was 1-for-2 with a single two walks and two RBI, which came in the big four-run Alabama fifth. Senior catcher Brett Booth pitched in two walks and a run
The University of Alabama's spring break will be sandwiched into the Crimson Tide's practice schedule. Alabama will hold four practices (March 16, 18, 20 and 22) before it breaks for 10 days.
Last year’s injuries limited the ability to add a third option from the backfield, but when Hart hits the field this spring his skills will be tough to keep sidelined. He has to stay healthy, but he also has to show resilience and the explosion that made him special as a recruit in 2011.
Saban, "Some people learn by words, some people learn by consequences, some people can’t learn.”
"Danny Woodson has been suspended for violation of team rules so he's not going to be participating," said Saban. "Marvin Shinn has elected not to go through the offseason program. Therefore, he will not be going through spring practice or be part of the team. I'm assuming that he's going to decide to go someplace else, but I haven't heard that."
