Overview


For serious football fans wanting to relive the most unforgettable, extraordinary, and gut-wrenching moments in Alabama's history, this account explores the team's greatest plays, providing context, back story, relevant circumstances, and comments from those directly involved in each play. Photos help reanimate memories, including offensive lineman Jerry Duncan's unlikely catch to help beat Nebraska in the 1966 Orange Bowl, the goal-line stand against Penn State that preserved the 1978 National Championship, George Teague ripping the ball away from Miami's Lamar Thomas in the 1993 Sugar Bowl, and Tyrone Prothro's miraculous 2005 catch in a come-from-behind victory against Southern Mississippi.

Editorial Reviews

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.
