Not a whole lot to see today as the regular media viewing period was cut in half. It was another hot one, though in Tuscaloosa with a temperature of 90 and a feels-like of 99.

The big thing I noticed was that running back Bo Scarbrough was not spotted in practice. The other thing that really jumped out to me was the size of freshman defensive lineman LaBryan Ray. He’s still running with the fourth positional grouping, but it’s hard to envision him not playing some role this season. It might take time, but I think he’ll earn some playing time as a freshman.

Up next: The second scrimmage of fall Saturday followed by Nick Saban press conference.
