About this item
Alabama football has a rich history. The Crimson Tide have won 16 national championships (more than any other school), produced more than 100 All-Americans, and sent more than 200 players to the NFL. Alabama is arguably the most successful and most prestigious college football program in history, shaped by proud players wearing the Crimson and White and molded by hugely successful coaches like Wallace Wade, Frank Thomas, Paul Bear” Bryant, Gene Stallings, and Nick Saban. In Crimson Nation, Voice of the Crimson Tide Eli Gold shares what he sees as the greatest moments that shaped the Alabama football program. Recalling everything from the beginning of radio broadcasting to the four recent national championships under Nick Saban, this book gives a private look into Bama football. Read Harry Gilmer’s account of the first time the Alabama team flew to a football game. Find out about the time Bear Bryant played with a broken leg. Learn the story of when Stallings left working for Bear Bryant to coach at Texas A&M only to beat his former boss in the 1968 Cotton Bowl. Relive the excitement of four national championships under Nick Saban. It’s all here and told as only Eli Gold can tell it.
