As expected, Nick Saban and the University of Alabama's Media Relations staff have released the official depth chart for the first game of the 2009 season. There are some surprises - first off there are no true freshmen listed at first or second string anywhere. Second, there are 11 true freshman and seven redshirt freshman in the three deep (which is frequently actually four deep). There's also a JuCo transfer at first team. Here's the full deal, with more analysis later: no comments
A couple of Monday morning notes - it is, in fact, game week.
We expect UA Media Relations to release the game notes, which will likely include a depth chart. We're expecting this mid afternoon. We're prepped and ready to bring it to you as soon as it's released. That will also kick off the process of re-creating the printable roster and depth chart that we've received some e-mail about.
