Alabama Football: Lack of starting experience on offense sobering

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Alabama Football could field a starting offense for the A-Day game with only two players having started more than three games in their careers. Nick Saban never wants to show much on either side of the ball in the spring game. That will be more true this Saturday as most of the tweaks made by Bill O’Brien’s revamped Tide offense will be kept under wraps.

The lack of offensive experience, plus a constrained playbook should allow the first-team defense to dominate the A-Day game. There is little chance the second-unit offense will have significant success against the Alabama Football first-unit defense.
