Roll Tide in the red zone is red hot

‘You have to set your hair on fire’ approach has ’Bama at No. 1
Extending the football across the goal line has been Alabama’s specialty, thanks to big backs such as Eddie Lacy and a creative red zone scheme. “You have to set your hair on fire, like my position coach Jeff Stoutland says,” guard Chance Warmack said. “When we hit the goal line, we know we have to execute and score. We take pride in that.”
“We’ve practiced down there a lot,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. “I think that players just get comfortable in that part of the field. But I really think if you’re going to be a good red zone team because the field shrinks, it’s more difficult to pass the ball. You’ve got the same number of players in a lot less space playing pass coverage.”
