The Alabama Football Team got it's first progress report of training camp over the weekend, holding it's first scrimmage. The coaches didn't release stats from the scrimmage, so everyone was left guessing how the team fared.

But, players were upbeat on Monday, so it appears the Tide is moving in the right direction with the season three weeks away.

"I feel like all 11, well actually, all 22 first team and second team (defense) played pretty good," Senior linebacker Don'ta Hightower said. "We're still in the process of learning and teaching the younger guys, but it's still not the end of camp yet, so we're still constantly learning every day."

Despite the confidence, the team knows it has a long way to go before Kent State comes to Bryant-Denny Stadium on September 3rd.

"There's a lot we have to work on," senior wide receiver Marquis Maze said. "We just been in camp for a week and a half, so there's a lot of things we need to work on to get better in the run game, and the passing game also. We're not where we want to be at this point.."

In one other Tide note, kickoff for the team's home game with Georgia Southern has been set for 1:00 p.m. The game will be offered on pay-per-view.
