My mother was able to get copies of these pictures from a lady she works with. My brother was kind enough to allow access to his online photo site so I could see and snag them.
These are photos of Coach Bear Bryant at Legion Field. The opponent is LSU — if you look closely, you can see a few fans in the background wearing the tell-tale purple and gold. There’s also one shot with the LSU tiger mascot next to Bear. The exact date is unknown, but if I had to guess it’s in the late 70’s, most probably 1978 (Alabama played LSU at Legion field that year). Unfortunately there is only one shot with any players in the picture, and I am unable to make out their names. I also have not yet found a roster for the 1978-79 year so until I get some additional information, I’m just guessing here.
Anyways, I figured many of you would get a kick out of these. I’ve just now finished uploading the images and if the set doesn’t display correctly, give it a minute or two and try the link again:

Brings back wonderful memories. I was at that game, I’m sure. I never missed one at Legion Field. I have a press guide from 1978, I’ll try to find it and check the roster. Send the link to Lee Davis at The Source 101.1 FM. I guarantee he’ll know the year, the players, the record and anything else you want to know!
Thanks, Nicki. It was a treat for sure!
Thanks so much, I’d really appreciate that! :)
re: Lee Davis, will do. Thanks for the tip! :D
