Alabama has a long-standing legacy of greatness. They have long been considered one of, if not the, best teams in college football. They have by far the most, official championship titles with 10-14, depending on what you include. And they have two of the most respected and talented coaches in college history, with Bear Bryant and Nick Saban.
I wanted to create a tribute to that, showcasing their tradition of victory and strength. From the elephants charging through a red, mist (meant to symbolize a rolling tide) to a player holding up the national trophy after a win, it all conveys strength and power. I also included Nick Saban running on to the field, followed by the checkered-fabric of Bear Bryant's, trademark hat, which is meant to show how he had this huge legacy of greatness to overcome, but he has done so with a dogged determination.
