Alabama has shut out its bowl opponents and claimed the national championship three times in the football program's long and storied history. As we all know, the most recent instance was the 21-0 humiliation of LSU in the 2011 BCS National Championship game. The instance prior was the 1963 Orange Bowl when the Tide blanked Oklahoma 17-0. The very first time was the 1931 Rose Bowl when Alabama demolished Washington State 17-0. Recently, the WSU library uploaded a four minute film of this game onto YouTube which I discovered doing research for Remember the Rose Bowl. There's more info at that site as well as on the YouTube page. The main thing you need to know is Alabama is in the white uniforms.

A federal appeals court in Atlanta sided today in favor of Daniel Moore in the most significant issues of the University of Alabama's 7-year-old case against the Birmingham artist. The university had claimed that Moore's paintings of Alabama football violated the school's trademark rights. The 11th U.S. Circuit of Appeals upheld a district court's ruling that Moore's paintings and prints are protected by the First Amendment, and reversed the lower court's decision by also protecting Moore's prints on calendars.Artist Daniel Moore wins key issues in appeals case over Alabama paintings | al.com Daniel Moore jumped the shark about 10 paintings (this year ZING!) ago, but glad to see he's winning. The lawsuit against him has to be one of the most boneheaded decisions by the University since Mike Price, from a waste of time and resources angle to just plain old public relations.
