It is loaded with statistics and relentless game-by-game, quarter-by-quarter, score-by-score, and even play-by-play summaries. Let me say simply that the statistics are incredible. Alabama teams went up to twenty games without a loss, without even been scored upon. In 1930, Alabama scored 247 points, opponents 13.</p> Tue, 06 Nov 2007 15:20:00 +0000 Don Noble 1592 at http://apr.org Wallace Wade: Championship Years at Alabama and Duke
