Which Side Will Win A-Day? Team Crimson or Team White?
The Alabama Crimson Tide takes part in its A-Day Spring Game as a culmination of spring practice. The first team offense will be paired with the second team defense to face the first team defense and the second team offense. Which side will leave Bryant-Denny Stadium victorious on Saturday?
The White squad houses the first team offense and the second team defense and is coached by Robert Gillespie, Bill O'Brien, Charles Kelly, Freddie Roach and Sal Sunseri. White features next season's likely starting quarterback, Bryce Young and a strong stable of running backs in Brian Robinson, Roydell Williams and Keilan Robinson.
While the White team does have the first team offensive line it is unclear who all will be available to protect Young. Evan Neal is not expected to play as well as Emil Ekiyor. White team also features interesting young linebackers Drew Sanders, Quandarrius Robinson, King Mwikuta, Deontae Lawson, Demouy Kennedy, Ian Jackson and Jackson Bratton.
Crimson Team will be quarterbacked by Paul Tyson and Jalen Milroe and they will e joined by Jase McClellan in the Crimson Team backfield. The team also interestingly features the three early enrolee wide receivers Ja'Corey Brooks, Agiye Hall and Christian Leary.
The Crimson Team features the first team defense that returns experience at every level. The linebacking core is led by Christian Harris with Will Anderson and Chris Allen coming off the edge. The side also features a daunting defensive front of Phidarian Mathis, LaBryan Ray and Justin Eboigbe.
Which side ends up on top on A-Day? The first team defense or the first team offense? A-Day is often a very controlled scrimmage for the Crimson Tide and while we have the rosters for each side it is unclear who all will be available to play due to health and other factors.
A-Day is set to begin at 12:00 p.m. CT on ESPN and can be heard locally on Tide 100.9 FM and 95.3 The Bear. Pregame coverage will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Tide 100.9 FM with Saturday Morning Showdown.
