    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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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....

    Re: I Need Ticket Stubs

    What era are you looking for?

    Maybe it was covering his "Good Luck, Coach Saban ... in Texas" t-shirt.

    1973: Notre Dame 24 Alabama 23. Plus, got physically ill.

    1981: Alabama 31 Penn St. 16. The 7-play goal line stand. Coach Bryant tipped his hat, a lineman did a cartwheel coming off the field. I...
