Description

Why did the kings of college football fall from their legendary status? Written by a former Alabama walk-on, Crimson Slide - with interviews from former Alabama coaches, captains, and personalities (some of whom refused to speak to anyone else) - explores Alabama's recent decline and suggests solutions. You've heard the rumors, endured speculation and desired the truth about where Alabama football has been and where it's going. There is a long story to be told. Which SEC rival is most responsible for Alabama's struggles? What really happened to Gene Stallings? Why did Mike DuBose, a qualified and capable coach, fail? Why did Dennis Franchione, the supposed savior, flee Tuscaloosa for College Station? Why did Mike Price get fired before coaching a single game? What must Mike Shula do to restore Alabama's reputation and restore that Alabama swagger? As an inside-narrative, Crimson Slide transcends the sports book genre and provides a blueprint of how a proud program fell, but can rise again.
