How did Joe Namath end up at Alabama?

Listen to him tell the story: https://trib.al/L216bjt


Quote
Namath related how he went from Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, to Tuscaloosa after Alabama assistant coach Howard Schnellenberger arrived at his home "unannounced."

 "There was a knock on the door one day," Namath said. "I happened to be home, my mother and I, just the two of us in the house. Knock on the door. I went to the door unsuspecting. I opened it, and there was this big man there with a very deep voice, nearly as deep as coach Bryant's -- he favored coach Bryant in that category, too, and coaching as well. But he introduced himself. My mother came up behind me, and he introduced himself to my mother as being from the University of Alabama.

"What had happened was I didn't pass my college boards at the University of Maryland, and the coach there, Tom Nugent, knew coach Bryant. So he called coach Bryant, and coach Bryant immediately sent Howard north. Alabama had come to recruit me during the basketball season that year, and I wasn't even thinking about where I was going to go to school at that time.

"But my mother liked the way that Howard Schnellenberger presented himself and she wanted me to go to college. And by gosh, she went upstairs, packed a bag that you could put under the seat in front of you on an airplane and said, 'Here you are, coach. Go ahead and take him.' Gave me a five-dollar bill and said, 'Take him.'"

Namath said he wasn't taken with Bryant at first, but grew to appreciate the coach.

Derrius Guice in #LSU record books.

(h/t @MicklesAdvocate)


Guice had 21 carries for 98 yards. He misses breaking Bo Jackson's SEC record of career yards-per-carry, per @tpolitz's chart. I believe he breaks #LSU's school record, set by Fournette.
