Name your top 5 favorite bama players of all time
I'm 29 so don't remember much before 92 team
1. David Palmer
2. Bobby Humphrey
3. Mike Shula--yep
4. Van Tiffin
5. Upshaw---Touch that thang sealed the deal
For the most part, you can tell I was a kid growing up in the 80's.
in no specific order................Rashad Johnson, Derrick Thomas, Javy, Musso, Cody.
Musso was my hero growing up. DT because he was off the charts great! RJ & Javy because they left it all on the field and were both astronomical over achievers. and Cody made me watch the D-line instead of the ball carrier. also I automatically love any kid who comes from out of state to wear the Crimson. ROLL TIDE.

First class in every way
I'm gonna go:
You can argue about the order. Hate I had to leave off Ozzie, C. Bennett and Namath, but rules are rules.
5)David Palmer-Special Teams
Your list is pretty good. I'm 31
Millons. (I know)
Hard to pick 5
That is just plain not fair to keep it at 5. They're so many more. RTR
Good catch. Thanks. Yes, trouble was bad, but when I really started getting into Alabama football, he was our guy. +1
Same here...Stacy, Williams, and Lassic were the first 3 backs I really remember. Good times!
1) Derrick Thomas-Best College Defensive Player of All Time in my opinion
2) Javy Arenas-not highly recruited, but proved all the doubters wrong and was huge part on national championship team
3) Bobby Humphrey-was the first dynamic player on offense I remember watching when I started watching Bama football
4) Mark Ingram-Heisman
5) Demeco Ryans-heart and soul of great '05 defense
So many others. Really hard to choose. TRich, Palmer, Curry, Copeland, Sam Shade, George Teague, Barrett Jones, Langham, McElroy, McCarron, Cornelius Bennett, Mark Anderson, Prothro, Lamonde Russell, Kevin Turner, Leron McClain, Wesley Britt, Evan Mathis, Julio,....I could go on forever, but I have to get back to work.
Any list without Derrick Thomas #1 needs to be revisited.. That guy was BY FAR the best college player we have ever had... arguably of all time. Sure, you can name some old 5'10 175lb white dude that ran and threw in the 40's against other slow players.. But DT played in the modern era and was COMPLETELY unstoppable.
Seriously - if we had him on our team right now the score to games would be 100-0 EVERY TIME.. and I am not even kidding. He was that good.
DT (Sack monster)
These guys were all game changers... Too many to list though... Julio, Ingy, Hannah, Joe Willie, The Snake, etc etc...
"Character" is doing the right thing when nobody is looking.
