Welcome to J.D.'s Alabama Football Page. I have a few links to some of the best Alabama football web sites listed below. If you know of a good one I don't have, send me an E-Mail and I will add it. So get your hound's tooth hat, your red and white shaker, your favorite adult beverage and have fun! My favorite adult beverage is beer!
Incidently, check here later if you are interested in postcards and also look at my new Birmingham Postcard Book that I authored.
Well, the NCAA hammered Bama with severe penalties! It is such a shame that actions of so called "boosters", who never attended the University of Alabama, can severely affect the players, current coaches, and also the fans. That's all I will say about this. Now, continue your tour.

I found this neat Phonecard, well actually it found me. It was a limited edition and I'm sure you will recognize the scene as Bear's last game. Unfortunately, it is not available any longer.
And now, finally available, a video of the original movie, "The Bear", which was filmed in 1984 after his death. Shortly after the premiere in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the movie was withdrawn from circulation and has not been seen since....until now! For information go to http://www.thebearincorporated.com.

Now, let me tell you a little about the rich football tradition at the University of Alabama. However, before we go any farther let me say that the problems we are having now will be corrected. We have been down before but we always come back. WE WILL BE BACK! Now, on with the tradition.
Alabama played its first football game in Birmingham, Alabama on November 11, 1892. It was also the first win and the first shutout. The score was 56-0 and the opponent was Birmingham High School.
Alabama's first bowl game was in the 1926 Rose Bowl against the University of Washington (Alabama won 20-19). It was also the first of twelve National Championships. In fact, Alabama's first four National Championships were won in the Rose Bowl (1926-1927-1931-1935).
