Alabama coach Nick Saban left a turnover-filled spring game feeling some players are ''too comfortable with their circumstances.''
Then again, he says he was just as dissatisfied at this point with the three Crimson Tide teams that won national titles in the past four years.
Quarterback AJ McCarron passed for 223 yards and a touchdown but was also intercepted twice in Saturday's game. McCarron's White team won 17-14 on Saturday over the Crimson, led by the first-team defense.
The two offenses combined for six interceptions and three lost fumbles. T.J. Yeldon had 69 yards rushing, 60 receiving and scored the winning touchdown on a 7-yard run with 1:04 left.
Yeldon earned MVP honors of the spring game for the second straight year.
The game drew an announced crowd of 78,315.
