Thank you, Cecil Hurt, for all that you inspired
By Jess Nicholas, TideFans.com Editor-In-Chief

The year, as I remember it, is somewhere around 1985. I’m sitting with my parents around the breakfast table of my Aunt Gayle’s home, a Sunday after an Alabama victory.

Dad went earlier that morning to grab the weekend’s newspapers. They lie stacked on Aunt Gayle’s kitchen table – the Birmingham News, the Birmingham Post-Herald, and a third, noticeably thinner publication, a copy of the Tuscaloosa News, because Mom wants to read what “the hometown guys” said about the game.

Must be some dust in my eyes. A great tribute Jess to a true master of his craft.
