Alabama did both during its first scrimmage on Friday, on defense as it was missing four starters. "We really wanted to evaluate how guys competed, what their effort was, what kind of mental and physical toughness did they play with, how accountable could they be to go out there and do their job," Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. Saban said Jalen Milroe and Ty Simpson had their highlights as the offense "played great." With the offense finding success, that means the defense wasn't playing up to par a note that Saban highlighted after the scrimmage.
