Alabama OL Landon Dickerson discusses crowd noise at Mizzou: 'There's a plan in place'
Fifth-year senior Landon Dickerson has played multiple positions for Alabama, and this year he has stepped into a leadership role and become vocal to get the team going.
This year, that includes a unique road game environment, and the Crimson Tide get started at Missouri next week, which like other SEC schools, will have just 25 percent capacity at its games this fall. So calling plays along the line of scrimmage will be different this season, but Dickerson said Alabama is preparing like it’s always done.
“Honestly I’m not too sure about the (percent) of fans that will be at the stadium. We have to do what we’ve always done,” Dickerson told reporters on Thursday. “We have things ready if there is crowd noise. There’s a plan in place for whatever we have.”
He added that the biggest thing is to worry about what you can control, even in uncertain times.
“For us that was coming in everyday and practicing like we’re going to play a game the next day,” he said. “Control the things you can control and be ready at all times.”
That goes for QB Mac Jones and the other quarterbacks in Tuscaloosa.
“No matter who is in at QB they have to control the situation,” he said. “I feel very confident in Mac with that, the other QBs do as well. They’re very poised and they have a plan.”
