I think it is important for all of the Randall bashers to read that the guy knows his shortcomings and is working hard on them. Also of note is that Saban is not going to hand the job to anybody. Advocate On Randall, Saban said, "Marcus made a tremendous amount of improvement when he played two years ago. Those experiences helped him a lot. ... I see a difference in him on terms of how he goes about his preparation on a day-to-day basis. He spends more time watching film, studying the game, understanding what's going on. ... "But I still think that the talent of some of the other guys has been impressive so far. Their knowledge and experience is not what Marcus' is. So we've got to give them some time to go through the process. It'll be interesting to see how they perform under fire. In the spring, a scrimmage is as much fire as they'll get. That doesn't mean they'll be ready for the game. It's just another step in that direction." Saban said all three will get reps, "maybe not with the ones, but with good people," when the team scrimmages Friday. For his part, Randall said he's been working on game management and being a leader. On the derby, Randall said, "I'm just letting it come to me. I'm just going hard, practicing hard each day, trying to learn more, basically just stay calm and have fun. ... This is the best I've felt ever coming in. I feel like I know the system. The reads are coming to me better. The game is slowing down to me."
