We often hear coaches discuss their desires for players to practice with the same intensity that they display in games.
And while that’s a great way to get better, there’s always that line that teams and players, especially young ones, have to find to make sure they’re getting in good reps while not hurting their teammates. At the end of the week, it is the other team on which you want to inflict the most pain.
However, according to a sophomore linebacker at Alabama, forget everything you just read. Practice, game, doesn’t matter, the Crimson Tide go full tilt all the time. And considering Nick Saban probably wouldn’t tolerate anything else, maybe this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise.
I know we different at Bama we be trying to kill each other at practice. #BamaWay 💯🤘🏾

That’s linebacker Mack Wilson, a prized recruit in the 2016 class who played sparingly as a freshman and is now getting more game action since the Crimson Tide linebackers have been decimated by injuries.
And if that looks like just maybe an underclassman talking a big game, check out what former Alabama coach ReTweeted this Tweet.
So clearly during Wilson’s first year in Tuscaloosa and Lane Kiffin’s last, the now current Florida Atlantic coach got a taste of the defense going all out as he tried to prep his offense for Saturdays.
And with a dominant decade under Nick Saban, it’s hard to argue that the Crimson Tide should change anything, really.
