VIDEO: Nico Johnson discusses Bama scrimmage

Senior linebacker Nico Johnson talked about the defense's performance during last Saturday's scrimmage, Alabama's first of fall camp. He said the desire and effort was there, but the group made a lot of mistakes.

After Monday morning's practice, senior linebacker Nico Johnson discussed the defense's performance at Alabama's scrimmage last Saturday. It was the Crimson Tide's first scrimmage of fall camp.

"We made a lot of mistakes, but not mistakes we can't correct," he said. "Effort, toughness, the want-to, the will to do everything right was there. But like I said, we made a lot of mistakes. We've got a lot of improving to do. We have a lot of time before the first game. It was exciting Saturday. It was pretty much like a game-type atmosphere out there, because everybody was so high-intensity and just flying around having fun."
