In January of 2007, the University of Alabama hired Nick Saban to be the next head coach for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Coach Saban spoke of returning the Crimson Tide to power to once again compete on the national level as a process of creating an identity. In Nick Saban’s second year as head coach, the Crimson Tide bounded from a Pre-Season #24 to the Nation’s #1 for five consecutive weeks. The “Process” was ahead of schedule, and the SEC West was won in only ten weeks.

After six consecutive losses to the Auburn Tigers, and having never won an Iron Bowl on the home field at Tuscaloosa, the Alabama Crimson Tide overwhelmingly defeated Auburn 36-0 at Bryant-Denny Stadium. It was the largest margin of victory in an Iron Bowl since 1962.

“The 2008 Iron Bowl was a clinic on smash mouth football and dominating defense, and for all that the game meant for Alabama football, I felt inspired to capture the victory on canvas.” - Rick Rush

Beyond the game itself, beyond capping off an undefeated regular season, the Iron Bowl indicated a changing of the guard in the state of Alabama, and a preview of things to come for the Southeastern Conference and the Nation as a whole. As the cover of Sports Illustrated read after Week One, ALABAMA SENDS AN EARLY WARNING – the Alabama Crimson Tide was returning to power.

The poster child of the quiet but confident, blue collar identity, and at the forefront of Return To Power, is first-team All-SEC running back junior Glen Coffee (#38). Coffee, on the handout from senior quarterback John Parker Wilson (#14), rushed for 144 yards on 20 carries and a touchdown. In the course of the game, Alabama fielded five running backs for a total of 234 rushing yards on 50 carries for three touchdowns. The running game was made possible by a stout offensive line including two first-team All-Americans in center senior Antoine Caldwell (#59), Outland Trophy winning left tackle junior Andre Smith. A fourth first-team All-American, noseguard junior Terrence Cody (#62), who recorded a sack and recovered a fumble on defense, also aided in an offensive touchdown in a jumbo package on the goal line.

On the sideline of Return To Power is All-American senior safety Rashad Johnson (#49), All-SEC senior defensive lineman Bobby Greenwood (#93), SEC Freshman Of The Year wide receiver Julio Jones (#8), and the National and SEC Coach Of The Year Nick Saban.
