Training camp is history, and the time to prepare for game number one has arrived for most schools across the country. Alabama kicked off it's prep work for the Michigan game on Tuesday.

The Crimson Tide is actually working on it's first three opponents, before narrowing it's focus to the Wolverines beginning this weekend. Head Coach Nick Saban says his team still has plenty of work to do.

However, he is pleased with the progress quarterback A.J. McCarron has made during camp, especially developing a rapport with his receiving corps.

"You know, I think we probably have, maybe the best chemistry that we've had in a long time between the quarterbacks and the receivers," Saban said. "A.J. is really a good leader."

McCarron says he doesn't have a go-to guy in the receiving corps, saying all of the receivers can make plays. He adds new offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier allows for more checks at the line of scrimmage, giving McCarron a chance to make more decisions during the game.
