One Way To Dam The Tide

The longest unbeaten streak in all college football ends at
Birmingham where waves of Tennessee's orange jerseys swamp
Bear Bryant's Alabama

John Underwood
October 30, 1967

WYCHE HAS MOVED TO MORE ELEGANT QUARTERS'

All right, you long sufferers. You have been looking for the way to beat Alabama. Here is how you
do it. Very simple. First thing you get two top quarterbacks, one who passes like a professional
and runs like he would rather not (call him
Swamp Rat Warren, just for fun) and one who is a
terrific natural athlete (call him Charlie Fulton) who also doubles as a tailback and frightens
people no matter what he plays. Are you getting this down? Then you make a raid into Alabama
and grab a prospect from under the nose of
Bear Bryant. That's the hard part. Better do that at
night. Call this prospect
Richmond Flowers Jr. of the Montgomery Flowers. Flowers can catch,
and he can run with what he has caught. Then you go down to
Tampa, Fla., and get a couple
more quarterbacks and shove them onto the defensive team. They will love it.















Now pay attention, because this is where it gets tricky. You allow both Warren and Fulton to get
hurt before the game. Knock them right out of the action, see? And you bring up a quarterback
with a name nobody can pronounce.
Bubba Wyche. Does it rhyme with tyke, rich, psyche, rice or
swish? His father says with "I-ch." Bubba is a fellow who has been hanging around for four
years, serving time as a red shirt on the meatball squad and aching to get a chance to earn his
laundry money.

Bubba gets a lot of unattention, and richly deserves it. Even the week before, when he makes his
debut on national television because Warren and Fulton are hurt and he beats Georgia Tech,
nobody thinks about him. Who's
Georgia Tech? Beat Alabama, that's the thing.




So, on a lovely clear day in late October you put the baby-faced, blue-eyed, turned-up-nose and
nice-as-can-be Bubba Wyche on the painted turf of
Legion Field in Birmingham before the
largest crowd—72,000—ever to see an
Alabama-Tennessee football game. Then you add
expatriate Flowers, who once got a wire from Alabama that said, "The Bear will make you regret
your unfortunate decision," and those two former quarterbacks from Tampa,
Defensive Halfback
Albert Dorsey and Linebacker Steve Kiner. You tell Wyche to throw passes, Flowers to catch
them, Dorsey to intercept when
Ken (The Snake) Stabler throws and Kiner to intercept Alabama's
runners. And there you have, in capsule, how Tennessee beat Alabama last weekend by a score
of 24-13.
