TideNation: Battle for backup QB spot

TideNation has more on Alabama football.

Alex Scarborough writes Insider: There’s no doubt that AJ McCarron will be Alabama’s starting quarterback in 2012, but there is a battle for the backup role. Phillip Sims, if he can get healthy, might be the one who earns the No. 2 spot.

Greg Ostendorf Insider: John O’Korn doesn’t have the hype of a lot of other recruits, but Alabama likes him and that’s all that matters to the Florida native.
