NEW ORLEANS, LA (WAFF) -

The Crimson Tide spent Monday indoors as they began practice for the Sugar Bowl.

TJ Yeldon's ankle was in much better condition.

"It feels good," Yeldon said. "Been out of rehab, just seeing how it feels, running full-speed at practice."

For Alabama, the day started with offense. Lane Kiffin's efforts have not gone unnoticed, often times stealing the show.

Kiffin expressed gratitude as he addressed cameras for the first time since his introduction.

"For Coach Saban to afford me this opportunity, and to be able to learn from somebody like him and his process - I would have done it for free," he said.

Last season, the Alabama offense ranked 36th in the country - this season, 15th. How a 12-1 season changes things...

Sugar Bowl action begins at 11 a.m. New Year's Day on ESPN2.
