Following Monday's first spring practice, new Alabama head coach Kalen DeBoer told reporters that he's maintained Nick Saban's fourth quarter conditioning plan. The training regimen is aimed at ensuring players maintain stamina late in games...

"We kept it pretty consistent with what it's been," DeBoer said. "The guys, you can tell it's something that they really feel strong about."

Was expecting to see steroids or at least deer antler spray.

I'm glad Nick Saban invented fourth quarter conditioning.

Well I'm disappointed now. I was hoping it was going to be the "Running of the Gumps."

The 4th quarter program is not a Saban thing. It's a Bama thing brought in by Bear Bryant. It has been used by every coach since.
It relies heavily on drills that wrestlers would use for conditioning. Talked to Murry Legg once and he said the 4th quarter program was straight out of hell.

I wonder if he will also keep “Two Minute Drills” and “Goal Line” as a part of practice too - keeping the other traditions unique to Nick Saban.

Hope "winning multiple championships" also remains as one.
