    It was the last game me and my Dad attended as well Tidehawk. We walked arm in arm from the SuperDome with the crowd chanting "Rooolll Tide" and Dad, a very soft spoken man, smiled and looked at me and said.."Sounds pretty good doesn't it?"

    I put my arm around his shoulder, squeezed and replied, "You damn right it does"...

    Unforgettable night.

    Been around for 10 of them. I was too young to remember '61. '92 was my favorite because of all the mouthing off by Miami. Also the last one I watched with my grandfather, he died in April of '93. I'll also remember it for coming down with food poisoning after the first quarter. I spent the next two hours in the bathroom, at halftime my mom asked my wife, "Is Mike Sick?" Never to be forgotten.

    That's one national title every 5.7 years of my life. Not a bad average!

    My favorite would be 92. That was just a very special year.

    65 was one of my favorites as well because we got totally screwed by a blown call in the Georgia game(18-17), Tied Tennessee when Stabler intentionally threw the ball out of bounds to kill the clock on fourth and goal thinking it was third down, and then two or three teams had to lose on New Years for us to have a prayer and they all did. Then we dominated a Nebraska team 39-28 in the Orange Bowl that outweighed us by 35 pounds or so per man. That was a very magical day.

    You guys?

    Mine are the same except I don't hesitate to throw in '66. Actually didn't we get the Football Writer's that year, just not the wire service polls? I may be wrong about that but we were the best anyway.

    Harry Gilmer starred in the game. This video features Gilmer. However, it is not from the Rose Bowl. But, the next one is from the 1946 Rose Bowl.

    At the age of 4 I witnessed Alabama win the 1961 NC. My mother tells everyone how I shutdown when my Dad and my Uncle did not take me with them. I refused to eat, I refused to do anything according to my Mother. As my Dad returned my Mother told my father he would take me to the game next time that she would not put up with how upset I was during that period in my life. I was only 4 and caused a stir in my parents life. I remember but not to the extent my Mother does. I must have been a handful. As the years went on I witnessed 64, 65, (66 Robbed), 73, (75,77 Robbed) 78, 79, 92, 09, 11, and 12. In my life time I have witnessed 10 Alabama National Champions and as I tell everyone "No Man or Woman should have this much Happiness and Pleasure in Life".

    4. '92, '09, '11, '12. My favorite is '09. I was in kindergarten when we won in '92, so I don't really remember it well. So it was great to see Coach Saban turn the program around after the Shula years and the Barn winning six straight. So that one is really special to me. Not to mention I was sitting on the 5 yard line by the end zone where Upchurch caught the game winner in the Iron Bowl that year.

    Best one was destroying LSWHO in 2011. Next would be destroying the golden dumbers this last year.

    So that would be 12 total with 3 back-to-backs.
    Won't call myself the elder statesman either.
    Well, he said "in your lifetime," so you can claim it. I certainly don't remember 1941's title or team. In fact, I barely remember 1941 and probably wouldn't at all, if it weren't for Pearl Harbor. Those were terrible years following, sort of like the Whitworth years - lose, lose, lose. My mother was a devoted fan of Gabriel Heatter, with his pessimistic, whining voice every night. You're probably the only one on who may know what I'm talking about...

    Another young one here, 6. 78,79,92,09,11,12.

    As a young one, my favorite was 09 simply because of revisiting Alabama history by attending the Rose Bowl.

    I have been alive for ten: 61-64-65-73-78-79-92-09-11 and 12. My earliest recollection is the 73 team. My fav would have to be the 2011 team because of the way they came out and just manhandled LSU in the BCSNCG after the disappoinment of the Nov loss to LSU. Side note that my daughter has been a student at UA for the last 4 yrs. She graduated in 3 yrs and is now in grad school at UA so she is 3 for 4. I told her she needed to find something else to get another masters in to keep the streak going!

    6.I have personally attended the last 3.My favorite had to be the 2011 win over LSU.Dominating the way we did in the Louisiana Superdome was awesome to me.That said,every championship has its own special place to me.Especially the ones I made the trip for.

    Same as you.......61-64-65-73-78-79-92-09-011 and 012.

    I guess 92 was probably the most gratifying because we were given no chance going into the game.
