Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Crimson Tide is one of the most storied and decorated football programs in NCAA history—since its inception in 1892, the program has claimed 14 National Championship titles, all of which are explored in this essential guide, along with the personalities, events, and facts that any and every Tide fan should know. The book zeros in on critical moments, such as when running back Mark Ingram became the first Alabama player to win the Heisman Trophy in 2009, despite the team being led to six championships from 1958 to 1982 by the celebrated coach Paul “Bear” Bryant, as well as key figures from the college's history that include coaches Gene Stallings and Nick Saban and players Joe Namath, Ozzie Newsome, and Derrick Thomas. More than a century of team history is distilled to highlight the absolute best and most compelling moments, identifying in an informative and lively way the personalities, events, and facts that have all come together to make Crimson Tide the powerhouse that it is. This updated version includes highlights from the 2009 and 2011 championship seasons and features key players from the past four years.
