I was born in Mississippi but raised in the great state of ALABAMA !!
If you want to walk the heavenly streets of gold, you gotta know the password, "Roll, tide, roll!" "Bear Bryant"
Make their ass quit!!! "Nick Saban"
"The expectation level is high at the University of Alabama and it should be. What's wrong with people expecting excellence?" -- Former Alabama coach Gene Stallings.
"You never know what a football player is made of until he plays against Alabama." -- Former Tennessee Coach Bob Neyland.
"I don't know if that's a great team, but they most certainly were great against us. I don't guess anybody has ever hit us that hard." -- Auburn coach Shug Jordan, 1961.
"Everyone says we can't beat Miami, but we are not just anybody, we are Alabama." -- David Palmer just before the 1992 Sugar Bowl.
"The first person I would like to thank is the good Lord, for giving me the ability to play the game of football. Because without the ability to play the game I would have been at Auburn." -- Marty Lyons
"He knocked me woozy. I have never been hit like that before and hopefully, I'll never be hit like that again." -- Notre Dame QB Steve Beuerlein
"Let's face it. Alabama just likes to hit you. They are the hardest hitting team I've ever played against." -- Illinois quarterback Tony Eason
"His ear had a real nasty cut and it was dangling from his head, bleeding badly. He grabbed his own ear and tried to yank it from his head. His teammates stopped him and the managers bandaged him. Man was that guy a tough one. He wanted to tear off his own ear so he could keep playing." -- Tennessee lineman Bull Bayer talking about his Alabama counterpart and first All-American Bully VandeGraaf in the 1913 game.
"Alabama's cornerbacks don't impress me one bit. They're overrated. Real men don't play zone defense and we'll show them a thing or two come January 1st." -- Miami Receiver Lamar Thomas before the '93 Sugar Bowl. Thomas was involved in the Play of the Century.
"Well Eli, Smokey just came out of the tunnel, and he's about 100 yards away from me now, and if I had my deer rifle I believe I could drop him, back to you Eli" -- Jerry Duncan's comments to Eli Gold just prior to kickoff against Tennessee.
