TUSCALOOSA – It was “Fan Day” at Alabama on Saturday, which meant it was the annual media day for taking team pictures and giving reporters their one shot at the Crimson Tide’s coordinators.

This was the first time new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll has talked with the media in Tuscaloosa and several introductory measures had to be resolved, starting with the correct pronunciation of his name.

Three years ago, former Alabama star Ha Ha Clinton-Dix went through a learning experience with the Green Bay Packers, missing a team-high 16 tackles in his rookie season.

This past season, he made 80 tackles (while missing just three), pulled in five interceptions, earned a trip to the Pro Bowl and got the Packers to pick up his fifth-year option to keep him under contract until 2018.

Once considered the new kid on the block, Clinton-Dix is one of the veterans on the Green Bay defense as it attempts to take the next step and return to the Super Bowl.

HOOVER – Minkah Fitzpatrick didn’t get much of a mention from his head coach during Wednesday’ SEC Media Days session.

In fact, there was only a small reference by Nick Saban about all three of Alabama’s representatives in the media room.

In the case of Fitzpatrick, it could be considered the norm since he is probably the most dependable player on a team that has a plethora of talent and reliability.

HOOVER – There are more questions than answers with this edition of the Alabama Crimson Tide, but that’s not expected to keep the media at SEC Media from voting the Tide as the overwhelming choice to win the conference title in 2017.

Nick Saban, making his 11th appearance as the Tide’s head coach, called this one of the youngest squads he’s ever assembled, which often reflects a sign of rebuilding.

HOOVER - When it comes to making decisions regarding the rescheduling of conference games, the commissioner is now in charge.

Paul “Bear” Bryant retired from coaching before Siran Stacy ever suited up for Geneva High School but the shifty runner with great vision and blazing speed never lost sight of his dream to play college football at the University of Alabama.

The obstacles he overcame to emerge as a star for the Crimson Tide are just one part of a life of professional setbacks and a horrific personal tragedy that set him on a path toward the creation of Siran Stacy Ministries.

On Monday, he will serve as the guest host for the 20th Kevin Turner Prattville YMCA Golf Tournament at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Capitol Hill. For Stacy, Turner’s battle with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) which led to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and his death in March, 2016, hits home for a teammate who had to battle depression following the loss of his wife and four of his five children in an automobile accident in 2007.
