"Light is good from whatever lamp it shines"
No one could have predicted or imagined what would transpire from 2000-2006 and honestly I plead to god daily to eradicate the memories of those years forever from my mind. Sadly, he hasn't heard my cries.. yet.
Sure there were some great memories, like this and this and this... And we'll always have Joe Kines but these are about all the "highlights" I care to see from that rather dreadful time in Alabama football history. Thank the lord we have these to watch on constant repeat.
So today we look back at the season many forget about because you know.. 3 out of 4 BABY! 1999 came before all the unpleasantness that was NCAA investigations and sanctions, coaching changes and scandals. It truly was the calm before the storm. 'Bama finished 10-3, beat UF and more importantly Spurrier twice in the same season, Shaun Alexander and Freddie Milons, won the SEC for the first time since 1992 and almost added an Orange Bowl victory to boot.
Enjoy the videos below and by all means add your own memories in the comments.
