7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Bo Hart on October 15, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Bear Bryant's success was due in part to his ability to adapt when necessary. In 1971, Bryant knew that he had to make changes to his program or be left behind. Adopting the wishbone was a brilliant move by Bryant; but perhaps his greatest move was adapting to the social changes of the time. Southern football has never been the same since 1971. The author has certainly done his homework with countless interviews with players and coaches of the '71 'Bama squad. This insider's look into this historical season will be enjoyed by all 'Bama and Southern football fans.

Mr. Briley writes an incredibly insightful book about the changing times surrounding the Bear's career. This is a must read for any Bama fan or admirer of the Bear! There are many books written about this amazing man, but none as focused on this particular year in the life of this American icon. Hats off to John David Briley and his outstanding literary efforts. I look forward to reading more works by him in the future.

One of the best books on Alabama football I've read to-date. Gives the reader a complete background on the entire 1971 season from spring to the national championship game. Very entertaining.
