As the Crimson Tide enter less than a month until their opening game at home against Utah State on September 3, they officially opened up Fall camp on August 4th.

After practice Head Coach Nick Saban held a press conference where at times was chaotic, especially regarding his comments about the 2021 season being a “rebuilding year” for the Tide. Saban as well did not hesitate to get right into the juice of the practice’s details. 

Saban Critiques Day One Performance

“We need to be more physical up front, first of all, and get movement on the run,” Saban said. “Getting more consistent and I think having more diversity in the running game would also help. I think the additions we made in the offseason is going to be helpful to that.” 

Saban would be referring to the five players they received in the offseason through the transfer portal. These include wide receiver Tyler Harrell from Louisville, offensive tackle Tyler Steen from Vanderbilt, wide receiver Jermaine Burton from Georgia, running back Jahmyr Gibbs from Georgia Tech and cornerback Eli Ricks from Louisiana State University. Each of these transfers is currently projected to start for the Tide this year. 

“I think, overall, we just have to have a different mentality up front in terms of the intangibles that we play with: the toughness, the effort. The offensive line is a place where that gets established on your team.”

According to Sports Illustrated, the projected starting offensive line will only feature one player under the junior classification. This means the experience level will be in abundance for their offensive line during the 2022 campaign. It is also not uncommon for Saban to focus on the fundamentals of his players making sure internal factors can be under control as much as possible. Unfortunately, Saban also stated that starting tight end, Cameron Latu was injured and would miss some of the fall camp but it wasn’t anything serious as of now. 

The Head Coach Versus The Head Talk Show Host

One of Saban’s biggest critics, yet also one of his fondest supporters in Paul Finebaum had much to say about Saban’s rebuilding year comments during his show. Although they’ve been known from time to time to have disagreements, they are both on relatively good terms as even Finebaum has admitted in July of 2022 that Saban helped save his career years ago.

“This is very predictable,” Finebaum stated on his well-renowned show. “Whenever he loses a game, like a National Championship game, here comes the excuse!”

Finebaum has a point, yet Saban’s response to this reinforces his argument that 2021 was indeed a rebuilding season for Alabama. What occurred after Saban was asked about it turned into another tirade about dumb questions he’s become famous for calling out. 

“I don’t really understand what’s so hard to understand,” Saban responded in the press conference about the 2021 team. “The point being, we were young and we should have nine starters back on offense and nine starters back on defense. That’s the point I was trying to make. Six guys went out for the draft, so as we usually have to do, we have lots of rebuilding to do this season. So that’s the point I’m trying to make.”

Whether Saban or Finebaum was right, ignores the reality of Saban’s comments altogether. Any year where Alabama has retained a majority of starters on the roster from the previous season, it has become a nightmare for other teams. Of the players who started in the national championship loss against Georgia, 12 will be back on the roster this season. This does not include several transfers that started on their respective teams last season. 

As fall camp continues through the month leading up to the first game, there will be more information regarding the team’s activities soon.

Murphy hits 2 HRs, Langeliers homers as As roll past Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Sean Murphy had his second two-homer game and rookie Shea Langeliers hit his first major league home run in his second game with Oakland, leading the Athletics to a 7-2 win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.

Murphy pulled a solo home run to left field in the first inning and launched an opposite-field, two-run shot into the home bullpen in right-center in the third inning.

Langeliers, from nearby Keller, Texas, homered on an 0-2 pitch with one on during Oakland’s four-run eighth inning. The 24-year-old was called up Tuesday and doubled on the first pitch he saw.

Murphy doubled in the eighth inning and scored, extending his hitting success at Globe Life Field. He has a .347 batting average with eight homers and 17 RBI in 18 games played at the ballpark. His first multi-homer game came in his third career start, on Sept. 19, 2019, at Houston.

A’s rookie righthander Adam Oller (2-5) allowed one run — his fewest in 10 starts — on five hits with four strikeouts and one walk.

Both home runs came off rookie left-hander Cole Ragans (0-2), who gave up three runs on four hits and one walk in five innings while striking out three. It was Ragans’ third big league start.

The A’s, with the worst record in the American League, have won two consecutive games following a nine-game losing streak.

Earlier in the day, Rangers president of baseball operations Jon Daniels, who led the front office for 17 years, was relieved of his duties, two days after the dismissal of manager Chris Woodward. Chris Young, the club’s executive vice president and general manager, takes over all aspects of baseball operations.

Adolis Garcia and Mark Mathias hit RBI doubles for Texas in the first and ninth innings. Mathias’ came in as a pinch-hitter in his debut with the Rangers. Garcia has a 14-game hitting streak.

The Rangers’ Nathaniel Lowe had a 22-game on-base streak snapped.

ROSTER MOVES

The A’s released veteran SS Elvis Andrus and recalled INF Sheldon Neuse, also from Keller, from Triple-A Las Vegas. Neuse went 1 for 3. … The Rangers designated RHP Garrett Richards for assignment.

TRAINER’S ROOM

A’s: RHP Brent Honeywell Jr. (elbow) has one more scheduled rehab outing with low Class A Stockton.

Rangers: RHP Joe Barlow (blister) was activated from the 15-day injured list after missing 31 games. Barlow pitched one scoreless inning, leaving the bases loaded. … OF Kole Calhoun (heel irritation) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock.

UP NEXT

Thursday afternoon’s finale to the four-game series will match A’s rookie LHP Zach Logue (3-6, 5.49 ERA) against Rangers RHP Dane Dunning (2-6, 4.12). Logue was recalled from Las Vegas last Saturday for his sixth stint with the club this season. He allowed four runs on seven hits, including two home runs, in 2 1/3 innings in an 11-4 loss to Texas on May 28. Dunning is 1-0 in his last six starts, and that win came by limiting the Chicago White Sox to no runs and one hit on Aug. 6.
