    Re: Best Jersey Number In Alabama History?

    The official 1934 team photo shows Bryant wearing #12. Another photo from 1933 (perhaps) shows Bryant wearing 12, standing next to Don Hutson, wearing #37 (The Crimson Tide, Winston Groom). The...

    Re: What is Your Favorite Kind of Win?

    On the road, as an underdog, and we empty the stadium by about the middle of the third quarter.

    Of course, the underdog part is hard to come by these days.
  3. Re: SIAP.."Mama Called" Bear Bryant Documentary Airs Tonight At 7 On PBS

    Notice in the trailer at 1:15, two LSU cheerleaders giddily approach Coach Bryant to shake the hand, not of a bitter rival, a despised foe, but of a legend, a true celebrity. And of course, he...
  4. Re: Eight of Alabama's Nine Losses Have a Common Theme Based on Opponents

    Question for someone with too much time on their hands - what is our record against all teams that ultimately won at least 10 games, since 2008?
  5. Re: With Our Schedule - And a Weak Lot of opposing QBs - Where do we lose 2 games?

    The mid-season stretch where 4 out of 5 games are on the road. Say what you will about the relative strengths of those teams, but road games are different. Although we have historically been far...
  6. Re: Bama Is A 7-5 Vegas Favorite To Win The SEC. Auburn Is 5-1.

    They definitely have it down to a science. The odds are not really a reflection of team strength, but how the betting public will perceive the teams and place their wagers accordingly. It looks like...

    Re: Linebacker U

    I also would like to mention an underrated, under-appreciated Thomas Boyd (#90, I think). Had 19 tackles against Notre Dame in 1980. Career - 324 tackles, 120 tackles in 1980. Super solid.

    Re: Linebacker U

    Not in the same league physically perhaps, but I remember #54 Mike Hall. Played 1966-68. Picture-perfect form tackling, hard hitting, extreme nose for the football, and oh yeah, caught passes as a...

    Poll: Re: Best Bama Team of the 1970s?

    In terms of talent - watch some film of the 1977 team and drool. Ozzie Newsome, Johnny Davis, Tony Nathan, and pretty much the same super solid defense as 1978. One mistake-filled early season game...
  10. Re: Former Bama player Joe King in serious condition after car wreck

    At the 1986 Penn St.-Alabama game, I was sitting on the rail, first row in the north end zone. I believe Penn State was in the Top 10 and so were we, undefeated at the time. Early in the first...
  11. Re: Blowing Leads To Auburn: A Problem We Must Fix Long-Term

    Those were some gut-wrenching, sickening, infuriating, "why was I ever born" defeats, for sure. But I would be a little leery of interpreting those results from some 40 years as a disturbing "trend."...

    Re: Bama's SEC Network Commercial,...

    Excellent.

    That gave me a golf ball-sized lump in my throat.

    The Master's records may be surpassed someday, but his persona will not be matched.

    If it has to be explained, you wouldn't...

    Re: Changing the Extra Point

    I would like to see them try the rugby-style PAT, lined up from where the ball crosses the goal line. Or, pulled back from where the runner is able to "touch down" the ball in the end zone. By the...

    Re: Marvin Constant's story

    I was standing in the corner of the end zone where that play happened and it was upsetting to see. I saw everyone celebrating while he was rolling around in pain and it did put things in perspective....
