Alabama Spring Game Plan

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban outlined his
plans for Saturday's spring game.

Saban said Thursday that the Crimson Tide will have the
offensive starters go against the defensive starters and backups
against backups, with some variations.

And as usual he will watch from behind the quarterback. Saban
says that post supplies a good glimpse into how the quarterback
manages the offense but it's also the best place to keep from
getting hit.

Saban says center William Vlacchos and wide receiver Michael
Bowman are out with injuries. Earl Alexander, Taylor Pharr, Milton
Talbert and Chad Lindsey also probably won't play.
