    just wanted to let everyone know that tomorrow night on showtime a sports documentary will air that covers the 1970 and 1971 usc and alabama football games. this was a home and home series scheduled by two of the GIANTS of the time, coaches McKay and Bryant!

    the first of these games was won by usc 42 to 21. in that game sam cunningham gained ~1,000 yards at legion field in birmingham. this game is often credited with providing much assistance in the integration of southern football.

    the second game was alabama's first game in the wishbone. i don't remember the score but alabama had been in "closed, super secret practice" and no one knew the wishbone offense was to be unveiled. alabama won that one.

    dustin if you are able to view the show please provide a "review". i don't get showtime, my wife never subscribes to any of them "nekkid channels"!

    Are talking about MSU, I think they only won it once over 20 years ago. Since then it has been all U of Montana, I hate them. MSU has improved the last few years and they give U of M a bit more challenge.

    It may have (and undoubtedly DID) helped with the perceptions of the fans, but football was already integrated at Alabama and most other southern schools at the time. In 1967, 5 African-American football players walked on to the Alabama football team, although none stayed. Alabama offered Wilbur Jackson a scholarship in 1970 (before the 1st USC game was played), and John Mitchell became the first A-A player to participate in a game in 1971.

    I remember listening to both games on the radio. I think Alabama had a few black players the second time around. John Mackay and Bear Bryant are to of my favorite coaches.

    i think mitchell was widely recruited, maybe even by coach McKay if my history is correct?

    I remember Sam "Bam" Cunningham because I was also a ULCA FAN growing up in Socal could not stand the Trojan no matter how cute the cheerleaders were then as they are now
    I do remember when Texas integrated the black football players first Julius Whittier and then two boys from my Austin neighborhood Howard Shaw and Don Ealey both were All Staters from Austin Reagan H'S and had to play two years at a D2 school before being accepted at UT
