Quin, no one who saw it can ever forget that magnificent hit by Barry Krauss that stopped Mike Guman on 4th-and-goal:
It was a head-on collision that nearly knocked Krauss unconscious. Seeing that video reminds me of one change made in the post-Bryant era. Crimson Tide players traditionally didn’t have their names on their jerseys. Don’t know who changed that policy, but I wish they’d change it back. Progress is the root of all evil.
UPDATE: Let me add video of my second-favorite play in Alabama history, “The Strip” by George Teague, from the 1993 Sugar Bowl vs. Miami:
There was a penalty on the play — offsides against Alabama — that nullified the turnover, but if Teague hadn’t overtaken Lamar Thomas with that incredible effort and stripped the ball away, Miami would have declined the penalty and been set up for a touchdown. Teague had earlier returned an interception for a touchdown.
