By 1958 the once legendary Bama football program had reached an all-time low -- only four wins in three years. The proud tradition that included national titles and Rose Bowl victories was a source of state pride that had to be saved. The University found its savior in Paul Bryant and it gave him free rein to work his miracles.Turnaround tells how Bryant took a group of young athletes who were accustomed to defeat and transformed some of them into winners, at the same time labeling others as losers or quitters, a stigma that some never overcame. Comprehensive interviews with players and coaches, detailed accounts of practice sessions, play-by-play recountings of the games, and numerous photographs take the reader back in time to that critical year in Alabama football history.
