I think the author did a GREAT job collecting all of the names Tide fans will recognize and mentioning some Crimson Tide athletes that we may have missed. It was fun reading up on some of the lesser known sports like boxing (Olympic medalist and heavy weight champ Deontay Wilder) and swimming, gymnastics, etc.. The U of A has had just as much success in every sport, as they have in football. This is a wonderful encyclopedic read for any true University of Alabama fan.

I'm not a huge sports fan, but I do live in Alabama, and this book goes beyond on-field achievements to tell of poignant life successes and give snapshots of state history. The charts include great nuggets of information and have become our reference guide for not only the University of Alabama records, but also those of other US schools and the Olympics.
