Bill Battle, new head coach at Tennessee and former Crimson Tide star end, attends the Alabama spring game along with five of his assistants. As a matter of fact, Battle is on hand not only to scout the Tide but to receive his plaque as a member of the All-Decade Team of the 1960s. Six scouts from Florida and five from Ole Miss are also in attendance as the Whites defeat the Reds 40-39. The crowd of 30,000 enjoys the offensive explosiveness, but head coach Paul Bryant is far from happy. "Not much defense out there is it," he remarks during the contest.
The Bryant Museum will be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day.
