Tuesday 'tube: Hate Week, Pt. I

Way too much youtubery is available for the history between Alabama and Tennessee. I'm going to have to break it up. After all ...

First up: two great ones from the 1970s.

A quick history lesson: the guy wearing the No. 80 jersey in that '73 game is Wilbur Jackson, the first black player to have ever signed with the Alabama football team (John Mitchell, a JUCO transfer from Arizona, was actually the first to play due to NCAA regulations prohibiting freshmen from competition).
Obviously, it worked out having him on our side.

More to come later.
