Thirty years ago today we lost the Coach. I know he would take pride in seeing what the Crimson Tide has become. The current Alabama program looks like something he would have put on the field. I wrote this a couple of years ago and try to post every year on January 26...
Do you remember the day that Coach Bryant died?
A day in the South when grown men cried
We let the world see our tears with nothing to hide
Now after all these years I'm still filled with pride
No other can match him, though many have tried
It is still by his rules that we try to abide
We'll show grace and class with our hearts opened wide
And shake the hands of our rivals from the other side
So I say "Thank you Coach for a heck of a ride"
We were all blessed to know you and forever… ROLL TIDE!!!
