Our Tradition Video

We have a lot of great pregame videos, and they have always served their job at getting me even more fired up for a big game as well as sending repeated chills down my spine. My favorite for the past several years has been the "Our Tradition" video, as a relatively younger fan(graduated from UA in '09), I like seeing and subsequently learning about the legendary plays and players. From the Run in the Mud to the Goal Line Stand to Cornelius Bennett destroying Steve Beuerlein, they are all spectacular and I take pride in having such a long standing tradition of excellence.

Now the video has been heavily re-edited, including 13 plays from last year by my count. Judging from the crowds reaction to each highlight, it seems to have been the right move, as every play from last year received a huge cheer. But it seems to me that while yes, last year was important, it is still just 1 of 13 championships. Being the most recent it is the closest to the fans hearts, but to me that doesn't make it more important. We are not defined by one season, and last season does not make up 1/2 our tradition.

In my opinion there should be at max three plays from last year, I'd prefer only two. One has to be of Ingram, being our only Heisman winner, he is now a major piece of Alabama tradition, so he has to be in there. The most iconic play from the season is undoubtably Rocky Block, and that would be my choice for what else to put in, as there are several different adjectives that could be used to describe it. If you want a play from the Texas game, then throw in the Dareus interception. 

Also, the immediate pregame videos are entirely comprised of plays from last year, as they should be. Those are what should get the crowd fired up, and they look better since they were all filmed in HD. It just seems to me that the Our Traditionr video should not sacrifice as much as it did for the sake of one year.
