Figured this would be kinda cool to do and read. You can post pics, videos or whatever you want.
Im only 33 so I dont remember too far back but some that stick out for me was "The Kick", the Antonio Langham INT in 1992 and of course 2008.
I found videos for the first two and my one of my favorite pics for the other
Van Tiffin's 52 yard field goal with 6 seconds to go to beat auburn!!!
09 Iron Bowl. Last game I watched with my granddad. Biggest Bama fan you'd ever want to meet. Grew up during the depression and was drafted into the Army. Some may consider him a "sidewalk" fan but damnit I'd love to be half the man he was.
It is so many wonderful memories. The kick is my all time favorite. What a moment in time. Roll Tide Roll!!!
Pre game 2008. Siran Stacy... Nuff said
I almost lost it in section NN
Siran Stacy, standout running back for the Tide from 1989-91, and his daughter, take the game ball and shake hands with Coach Nick Saban. Then, Siran urges the crowd to cheer in an almost serendipitous moment, pausing to throw the game ball into the north end zone stands. In 2007, a drunk driver's vehicle struck a van carrying his family and him. Killed in the accident were four of his five children and his wife.

This for me and it's not close. The butt whipping that transpired afterwards obviously helped, but watching Siran pre-game was the most awesome thing I've seen at a football game. I wanted to sprint down from the South endzone and give that guy a bear hug...in a no-homo, manly sort of way.
I was at both games one as a student the
other as a fan but when siran stacy started
pumping up the crowd, if I had a million dollars
to bet I would have because I knew we would
win the 2008 game
I'm the 35 and "The Kick" will always be at the top for me. I was 8 at the time and had went to my room in tears, crying because we were about to lose to auburn. The memory of my dad yelling for me to come watch Van Tiffin beat win the game still gives me chill bumps as I type this.
All wins over them are sweet, but 85 was special.
I look forward to my 3 year old son enjoying some Iron Bowl memories with me as he grows up.
1996 Iron Bowl. My first Iron Bowl to attend. I was 11. My dad took my mom, brother, sister and I too Legion Feild just to give us the tail gating experience. We were not going to attend the game. After being there for most of the day I begged my dad to buy tickets I wanted to see the game live I wanted the full experience. So he went and was only able to find 4 tickets. So my mom, brother and sister headed to the upper deck to watch the game. Sometime in the first quarter my dad showed up. Being young I asked him how he got up there and he said he bought a ticket and found us. Later in life he explained he paid a gate worker for their working pass to get in the game. I will never forget watching the final drive and standing in the isle cause I couldn't see over everyone. I watched the final play in awe as Riddle took the swing pass into the end zone. I remember jumping into my dads arms and yelling at the top of my lungs. It was a great experience that I will never forget. Roll Tide!!
This for me. My first Iron Bowl as well, just a kid. I was so pumped when we took a 17-0 lead, thought we would blow them out. Then we don't do anything else and AU storms back for a 23-17 lead. I was in the end zone where Riddle scored...not sure I've ever seen a crowd go so crazy. Cups, ice, toilet paper went flying everywhere. It was a zoo in there. 24-23 Bama...just unreal...
1999 Iron Bowl in Jordan Hare. I'll never forget Shaun Alexander getting stuffed on the goal line in the first half, only to come out and absolutely shred Auburn in the 2nd half. We were going bonkers. Bama fans stayed in the stadium an hour after the game. As Karl Welzein would say, we had quite the celebraish.
This one for me to! That was the last Iron Bowl I got to watch with my dad. He was fighting ALS and passed away a week before the National Championship Game.
85 tiffin kick I was 14 and was watching at a friend of my dads. I got so excited with the kick I jumped up into the ceiling fan.
Also 2008 and singing rammer jammer 6 times for tubbs. And last year at AU because it was my first iron bowl to take my kids to.
It was my first Iron Bowl in person and we were heavy underdogs heading down there. Almost didn't go because I thought we'd get waxed but was offered a free ticket two days before and decided to make a fun weekend of it regardless.
Went down there, got treated like crap the entire time, smug Aubs everywhere. And then we walked into JHS and beat their a** all over the field.
Santonio Beard and Ahmad Galloway ran wild (smoke draw), Zow was on the money all day, and we just methodically beat their faces in. Zow to McAddley right before the half was a memory I won't ever forget.
We gave their fans absolute hell all afternoon and the place emptied out in the middle of the third quarter.
Other favorites were 1996 and 2008.
"The Kick" hands down. Still get chills watching it. The radio broadcast was awesome. I like Keith Jackson and Frank Broyles announcing too. That 4th QTR was probably one of the best QTRs in college football history.

Mine was Bryants 315 win vs aburn @ legion field
Easily the "Kick"
Iron Bowl was always on Friday and we would be visiting my Grandparents for Thanksgiving. He had two rooms with TV's and the barn people were in one room and the Bama people in the other. My Uncle came dancing in the room after the barn scored late to rub it in. We were all depressed so the drive and winning kick were insane. Of course we got the last laugh on that one.
"Quit trying to make a play and do your job!"
2008 for me....the Rammer Jammer afterwards was the greatest of all time. It was also the last Iron Bowl my wonderful Dad saw as he died in the Summer of 2009. I'm so glad he got to see us kick their butts one last time.
