No team in college football is as synonymous with success as Alabama. For generations, any discussion of the game’s best program has included, and often ended with the Crimson Tide. With 16 National Championships spanning nearly a century, the University of Alabama has established and maintained its standing at the top of college football’s storied history.

 

In Crimson Nation: The Shaping of the South’s Most Dominant Football Team (Triumph Books, August 15, 2016), legendary play-by-play announcer Eli Gold offers insights and stories surrounding the key players and events in Crimson Tide history. Gold’s passion for Alabama Athletics shines as he covers everything from the days of Wallace Wade to the recent success of the Nick Saban era, and does so in his signature voice. The voice of the Crimson Tide. Highlights include:

 

  • A behind-the-scenes look at the broadcast booth, with a thorough review of the history of radio and its influence on fans’ experience of the game
  • How Wallace Wade led the Tide to their first Championship and brought recognition to the south with the region’s first appearance in a New Year’s Day game
  • Gold’s surprise selection for the greatest player ever to put on the Crimson Tide uniform
  • In-depth looks at the most memorable moments in school history, including Bear Bryant’s tenure, integration in the 1970s and the controversial suspension of Joe Namath
  • A detailed look at the four recent national championships under Nick Saban

 

Crimson Nation presents readers with a detailed account of more than 90 years of Crimson Tide football. Gold’s stories and perspective, gained from first-hand experience and thorough research, shed light on memories that will educate younger fans and delight diehards.
