The crystal football Alabama won for beating LSU in the BCS championship game in January was shat­tered on A-Day when it was accidentally knocked off a display by the father of a current player.

Athletic department spokesman Jeff Purinton said the Waterford Crystal trophy, valued at $30,000, was on display in the Mal Moore Athletic Facility as part of the festivities for the Crimson Tide’s spring football game Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala. He said the man stumbled on a rug that was under the trophy display.

Purinton said the school is working with the Amer­ican Football Coaches Association, which owns the trophy, on getting a replacement.

think a visiting recruit did the same at florida or some other school a few years ago. maybe they need to find more secure places or wrap the thing in some flubber or other space-age material.

I can see Forest running as Bear Bryant cocks his deer rifle. "Don't look back, Forest!!!"

the young man was an all-american and scored a bunch of touchdowns for the bear, no shooting, no way.

To make matters worse, he ended up at UGA.
