In 1935, Alabama's head coach Frank Thomas was featured in Sport Story Magazine, giving an explanation of his approach to football as well as a detailed analysis of the Crimson Tide's performance in that year's Rose Bowl -- a 29-13 victory over Stanford. I recently laid my hands on this publication and wrote about it over at Remember the Rose Bowl. It's a fascinating look at the philosophy behind the Tide's game 77 years ago. "Eleven players who can block, tackle and handle the ball, and who carry out to the very limit of their powers each individual assignment every play -- that's my idea of a real football team!" Thomas wrote. Yeah, I think he'd approve of Coach Saban's care of his program.
