Weekend Wrap: Practice sessions, media obligations, Fan Day

While Saturday marked the first time that Alabama's 2014 squad came together as one unit on the practice field, Sunday featured a mixed bag of media obligations, a public practice, and the annual "Fan Day" autograph session.

Media time

Given the occasion of such a busy weekend for the Tide program, and out of respect for reader attention, I'll try not to go long-winded.

However, I will say that @BamaFootballTCE, the official Twitter account of The Crimson Elephant, was able to capture a plethora of quotes from Lane Kiffin, Kirby Smart, and Nick Saban courtesy of some of the best beat writers and diligent reporters in the state. Personally, I say thank you for providing a wealth of information.

Be sure to visit the Twitter account, linked above, and take a quick scroll through an assortment of news and notes.

In respect to Alabama's Sunday practice session, the early morning blue sky didn't last long. The session, in which the Crimson Tide adorned helmets, pads, and shorts, was met with a brief rain shower.

As you can expect, the race to get an autograph from Nick Saban, Lane Kiffin, Amari Cooper and "insert player here" was quite intense. Watching 'Bama fans race across the turf at Bryant-Denny Stadium has become something of legend...and pure comedy.
