The Alabama football program is set to be featured on an all-access ESPN series titled “Training Days: Rolling with the Tide.” The new series will premiere on Thursday, Aug. 9 on ESPN2. The show — which gives a feel similar to the HBO hit series “Hard Knocks” — will follow the defending College Football Playoff National Champions as they prepare for the upcoming season.
“Alabama football is one of the premier programs in all of sports,” said ESPN vice president of production Lee Fitting in a statement.
“The intrigue behind their championship-filled decade and the fans’ appetite for unique access continues to escalate. This series will provide a unique perspective of the Crimson Tide as they build upon a foundation for what they hope is another championship campaign. We appreciate Coach Nick Saban and the entire Alabama operation for allowing us inside their walls over the next month.”
The series will give a look inside team and coaches meetings, positional battles on the field during training camp, and mic’d up players during practice throughout the month. “Training Days: Rolling with the Tide” will also give a look at the way fans and the local media respond to the program, an up-close look at the incredible Crimson Tide facilities, and some insight on what Alabama football players are like off of the field.
