Quick Overview:

Alabama Crimson Tide Football is almost a religion to its fans. Here, through the eyes of Eli Gold, the voice of the Tide, are the twenty greatest moments of Alabama football.

For nearly twenty years Eli Gold has been behind the microphone for Alabama football, calling many a memorable game and witnessing first hand some defining moments in the history of Alabama football: an unbelievable win at Penn State; numerous wins over Tennessee on the Third Saturday in October; a national title win over Miami. He also had a front row seat for the 1990 return of "Junction Boy" Gene Stallings. Those firsthand memories, plus many great moments from "days gone by," are just some of the stories as told by the Voice of the Crimson Tide.

Other memorable moments include:

  • Bama takes Southern football out west
  • Bear Bryant answers "Mama's call"
  • 12 national championships
  • Joe Willie and the "Snake"
  • The Goal Line Stand
  • Mike Shula and a return to the Bowls

"The passion he brings to his broadcasts, be it NASCAR or Alabama football, is beyond compare. There is no one better to write a book about one of the proudest franchises in all of college sports." ―Mike Helton, President, NASCAR

"A whole generation of Alabama fans [know] Eli as "The Voice of the Tide." Like all great broadcasters, he is a wonderful storyteller and this book is filled with some stories that I had never heard. An enjoyable combination of Bama football history and behind the scenes broadcast booth stories."  ―University of Alabama coach Mike Shula
