The book first tells the story about The State's Premier University's founding in 1831 and quickly gets to the first football game ever. The university's first football team and its first season come later as the Thin Red Line that later became the Crimson Tide makes itself known.
In 1892, the University's first football team assembled calling itself the "Thin Red Line." From a bit thin in the ranks, to later becoming the crushing "Crimson Tide," this book gets you there with many smiles. From there, the progression leads, to the Tide's first football game.
The first game in Alabama football history was played on November 11, 1892, against Birmingham High School and was won by the Cadets 56-0. They then split a pair of games with the Birmingham Athletic Club, and closed out the season with a 32-22 loss in the first Iron Bowl against Auburn on February 22, 1893. From then on, Alabama football is a story of fulfilled dreams.
This book captures the great moments in Alabama Football. It takes the reader through stories about Alabama's great coaches to stories about 124 seasons worth of great games. The book often stops in time and talks about a particular player such as Harry Gilmer, Bart Starr, Kenny Stabler, AJ McCarren, Joe Namath, Cornelius Bennett, Mark Ingram and others. I can't wait to read it.
