The drama and details of Alabama's thrilling 2011 championship season
On January 9, 2012 the Crimson Tide secured the BCS national title in a 21-0 win over the LSU Tigers. This up-to-the-minute publication presents photographs and highlights of the championship game as well as an analysis of the team's path to victory. Taking readers through every exciting moment of this historic campaign through the words of veteran Alabama journalist Kirk McNair and the lens of his son, photographer Stuart McNair, this chronicle of the team's journey invites readers to relive the highlights of Alabama's championship season, from the opening win over Kent State and the early-season defeat of Penn State in Happy Valley to the Iron Bowl win over rival Auburn and the BCS Championship triumph over LSU. It includes feature stories on head coach Nick Saban and Heisman Trophy finalist Trent Richardson, among others—accompanied by vivid photographs every step along the way.
