Soggy fields and missing players have limited the number of scrimmages in Alabama's spring practice, causing Coach Wallace Wade to be skeptical about the progress of his team. Wade says "football is a game of blocking, tackling and kicking" and emphasizes the Tide is not getting much done in the spring drills. Wade also notes he is not a believer in "gimmicks or trick plays." Captain Billy Hicks has been sidelined with an illness while center Jess Ebert has missed practice time after undergoing an operation on his right arm. Wade also notes Snake Vines has not been able to practice because he is having to work in the afternoon.
