MIAMI GARDENS, Florida — Hand some of these Alabama football players a microphone, and they’ll go to town.
That goes especially for sophomore outside linebacker Adrian Hubbard (42) and freshman offensive lineman Alphonse Taylor. They took the microphones from two Birmingham television stations and interviewed each other and teammates Xavier Dickson (47), a sophomore linebacker, and freshman Cyrus Jones (8), a freshman receiver.
They put on a short show today at the BCS media day at Sun Life Stadium.
Hubbard asks Taylor what it was like to block him on the scout team. Taylor asks Hubbard what it’s like to play for Alabama. They ask Dickson how fast he runs the 40-yard dash, casting a little doubt on his answer. They also claim Jones looks like a character from “Friday Night Lights” called Water Bug.
Anyway, it’s about two minutes long, so it won’t take too long.
