The number on the Alabama helmet, 12 or 13?

 

I thought I would bring a little discussion piece to RBR to get your opinions on the helmet that represents Alabama Football. I personally do not like the number 13 on the helmet. Why Judge? We have 13 National Championships so the number 13 should be on it. I don’t agree. When I was a kid and we had 11 National Championships the helmet had a twelve on it. When we had 12 NCs we kept the twelve but then we get 13 NCs and low and behold we have a 13 on it. So if (when) we get 14 National Championships, does the number change to 14?  Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought that 12 was the legendary number worn buy Namath and Stabler. To me, the 12 stood for excellence and tradition not the number of National Championships. So what is your opinion? Go back to the 12 or keep changing the number to correspond with the NCs we have.  Also, could someone clue me in on why the graphics for certain sports games and TV football games use the Alabama helmet with an 88 on it. Is there something to that?

Anyway, let’s have a great homecoming (hope to see y’all there) and Roll Tide Roll!!!
