    Don't want to dredge up a lot of bad feelings by watching it; great, great game that it was.

    Once was enough, believe me. It's tough to think about to this day.

    I can't belive I missed this. Classic must have updated their listings. I didn't see it on the tv guide when I do my weekly searches.
    Send me up some Pibb Extra and Golden Flake potato chips please

    I'd love to see that replay. I haven't seen it since the 1973. Someone please give a heads up if the game is re-aired. I remember one play where Alan Pizzatola (sp?) hit a ND player (seems like it was a tight end) so hard he almost knocked himself out. I really hope they air the game at a time where I can see it.

    I'd love to see the replay for very personal reasons. That's the only game Dad & I ever got to attend together, since he died about a year after that game, well before I came to UA as a student. Thus, despite the fact that the wrong team won, it remains one of my fave Bama games of all time, & always will.

    In the game trading community, this one is quite popular because it is the first match-up between the two teams and a great game.

    I have the FULL original broadcast. Picture is watchable but not great. I also have a b/w copy that was lifted from ABC Sports - has the numbers rotating on it.

    I understand that the actual broadcast tape of this game was missing from the ABC library for an extended period of time and that is why it has never been re-aired before until last night. Maybe some Notre Dame fan working at ABC borrowed it?

    It was interesting watching and listening to Howard Cosell and Bud Wilkenson call the game. Much better than the constant chattering/know it alls or bumblers (Vern) we have these days. IMO

    I also couldn't help but notice Mike Dubose losing containment on so many plays and letting the ND QB Tom Clements make big plays because of it.

    It was also cool watching the wishbone and ND's double wing offense.
    Ask me about my vow of silence.
