Crimson White Special Edition Commemorates Alabama’s National Championship (#RollTide)

The Crimson White published a special 20-page edition yesterday commemorating the University of Alabama’s historic 14th national college football championship.

The standout write-up in the issue– and the first championship piece featured on the CW’s website after the game concluded: “Zero Hesitation,” a rundown of how little outsiders had believed in the Tide a few months back and how big the team played when the moment mattered.

As it began, “Zero.  This word now has a special meaning for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Many believed the Tide had zero chance to make the BCS National Championship game after its loss to LSU on Nov. 5.  Those same people pointed to the number of touchdowns scored between the two teams in their last meeting. However, when the clock struck zero, the only zero that mattered for the Tide was the one beside LSU on the scoreboard as the Tide shut out the Tigers 21-0.”

A separate Flickr photo series captures tons of moments from the ultimately lopsided UA victory.

In an email, CW editor-in-chief Victor Luckerson also singled out a reaction video captured by Daniel Roth displaying the celebratory mood of UA fans watching from The Rusty Nail in New Orleans.
