Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In this keepsake hardcover, Kirk McNair endeavors to identify the greatest plays in the 112-year football history of the Alabama Crimson Tide. Talk about ambitious! Do the math: Since 1892, Alabama has played over 1,150 games. If the average game has 125 plays, poor Mr. McNair is obliged to evaluate more than 140,000 plays. We can't challenge any of his choices, but we can guarantee that this book will activate the memories of the Tuscaloosa faithful.
