    Intro & Alabama Football Facts/Stats

    Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Spencer Belkofer. Class of 2007 @ UA

    I'm working on a project that I thought some of you might find interesting - an infographic on Alabama's football dominance. (It will be similar to this http://luminconsulting.com/how-coffee-changed-america/ except on Alabama football.)

    In order to get the graphic together, I need to get together the "most amazing" facts/statistics on Alabama football, i.e. the more a stat/fact makes someone say, "Holy Cow...Bama really is the best football program in history".

    Any information obtained through this forum will definitely be given credit and cited in the graphic.

    So if you have any great facts/statics, please let me know what they are. The more we have, the better.

    Also, is anyone aware of a website (or document) that already has a lot of facts and/or stats related to this that might be helpful?

    Thanks ahead of time...I'm hoping to get this graphic completed in in the next several days (before the game next week). I'll be sure to post it here once I'm finished so you can see what the final version looks like.

    Hah...You bet I do It was a last minute idea, that's for sure. But I think it's going to work out. I just want to make sure I put the right information in it.

    Can't vouch for the official accuracy from these sites, but loads of stats if you're into crunching numbers. Good luck with your time-frame.

    Is there a way to do a poll on the forum? I'd like to do one of the top 5 Bama players for this year..and in history.

    Anyone can do a poll, but I don't think you've allowed enough time to get meaningful results. A poll examining the top five players this year will be more accurate. "All time" is sort of ridiculous. If you'll read all the other threads examining teams (much less players) across different eras, you'll see that those threads go on for many pages, sometimes months...
