    It's a great first memory to have.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    1972 Orange Bowl. Alabama 38, Nebraska 6.

    We had to watch the game with some Auburn grads on my Mom's side of the family.

    I remember a crusty old uncle of mine who was convinced that Bama was going to be crushed, and I remember my aunt telling him to watch his language because of such young company.

    My other down the street friends father was Lauren Stapp, used to punt for us in the sixties I think.

    The 1971 Iron Bowl - Punt Bama Punt game as a kid with my dad at Legion Field. I have hated the Barn with a passion ever since.

    The first game I ever went to is 13 years ago tomorrow! It was Bama vs Miss State 1999 with the winner taking the West. I haven't missed a home game since that night! Roll Tide!!! Btw, this was also the first Bama game I ever watched.

    TV- the Sugar Bowl when we beat Arkansas.

    Live - 1979 (I think) vs. Baylor in Legion Field

    In person: Bama vs USCw at Legion Field in 1978. Charles White was running back for USCw, and they beat us. SI's cover next week had photo of the game, with caption, "Rolling Back the Tide." Still makes me sick. Fortunately, we won half of the NC that year. Ironically, we shared it with USCw.

    On TV: I was too young to remember specifics, but it was a Bama - Ole Miss game when Archie Manning played for them.
    "Bryant can take his'n and beat your'n, and then he can turn around and take your'n and beat his'n." -- Houston Oiler head coach Bum Phillips, a former player under Coach Bryant

    1962,, Alabama vs Georgia, first game of the year,at night in Birmingham, relative coaching at Ga, got me a sideline ticket. Back then had a line of metal folding chairs where people sat, 5 yards off out of bounds line, can you imagine that today, was a soph in HS . Bama won 35-0 ...have been hooked on college football ever since... Roll Tide Roll

    85 Iron Bowl is the first one I can remember.


    The first football game I can remember seeing in person at the stadium wasn’t Alabama. It was the old all-american bowl in Birmingham. It was Kentucky and somebody. I went with my dad and my grandfather.

    Due to the current workload, the light at the end of the tunnel will be temporarily turned off.
