The former Alabama QB chats with Crimson Replay at length, including discussion of the first two Notre Dame games.
Todd: I actually committed to Auburn. That’s when they ran the wide-open system, with Pat Sullivan as the quarterback. That was way back in the days before they had all the recruiting rules. I visited Auburn five or six times. Pat Sullivan was like the nicest guy I’d ever met, and he treated me like an equal. Just a great guy. But the bottom line was: I wanted to play for Coach Bryant. That’s really the main reason I went to Alabama—to have a chance to play for Coach Bryant.
