About this item
A devastating tornado struck Tuscaloosa and the
University of Alabama campus on April 27, 2011.
Never before did this tight-knit community have to
overcome such a tragedy. In the debris, lives were
lost and dreams were shattered, but the town pulled
together as "One."
The "One" motto carried over to the Crimson
Tide football players, many of whom helped look for
survivors on that fateful April afternoon. When they
returned to practice, Alabama players and coaches
decided the best way to honor the fallen and the
community would be by winning the school's 14th
national championship. And that is exactly what they
From Tornado To Title No. 14 is
narrated by UA's Tommy Ford and illustrated
in images taken by Kent Gidley and his
staff of photographers at the University of
Alabama. You will read about and see the
tornado damage, the digging through debris,
the rebuilding process, and the involvement
of Tide head coach Nick Saban and his wife,
Terry, along with the Alabama players.
When the season opened, there was no
denying the Tide, as they started out 8-0
before a narrow 9-6 defeat to top-ranked
LSU. But the Tide, much like the residents
of Tuscaloosa, got up off the ground, dusted
themselves off and returned to the task at
hand. After three more victories, Alabama
had earned its way to the BCS National
Championship Game and a rematch with
LSU. On Jan. 9, 2012, in New Orleans, the
Crimson Tide defense rose to the occasion,
shutting out the Tigers 21-0 for Alabama's
14th national title in school history.
