Bryant-Denny Stadium is becoming one of the most prominent college football venues in the nation. Located on the southwestern edge of the University of Alabama campus, this historic stadium ranks among the nations top 5 on-campus football stadiums.

When built in 1929 the stadium was simply known as Denny Stadium, named after the 15th president of the University. In 1975, the Alabama state legislature renamed the stadium Bryant-Denny Stadium in honor of Coach Paul William Bear Bryant who led the Crimson Tide to six national titles.


emergency action plan

Emergency situations may arise at anytime during athletic events. Expedient action must be taken in order to provide the best possible care to the athletes of emergency and/or life threatening conditions. The development and implementation of an emergency plan will help ensure that the best care will be provided. Athletic organizations have a duty to develop an emergency plan that may be implemented immediately when necessary and to provide appropriate standards of health care to all sports participants. As athletic injuries may occur at any time and during any activity, the sports medicine team must be prepared. This preparation involves the formulation of an emergency plan, proper coverage of events, maintenance of appropriate emergency equipment and supplies, utilization of appropriate emergency medical personnel, and continuing education in the area of emergency medicine. Hopefully, through careful pre-participation physical screenings, adequate medical coverage, safe practice and training techniques and other safety avenues, some potential emergencies may be averted. However, accidents and injuries are inherent with sports participation, and proper preparation on the part of the sports medicine team will enable each emergency situation to be managed properly.

Components of the Emergency Plan

Emergency Plan Personnel With athletic association practice and competition, the first responder to an emergency situation is typically a member of the sports medicine staff, most commonly a certified athletic trainer. A team physician may not always be present at every organized practice or competition. The type and degree of sports medicine coverage for an athletic event may vary widely, based on such factors as the sport or activity, the setting, and the type of training or competition. The first responder in some instances may be a coach or other institutional personnel. Certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), first aid, prevention of disease transmission, and emergency plan review is required for all athletics personnel associated with practices, competitions, skills instruction, and strength and conditioning. The development of an emergency plan cannot be complete without the formation of an emergency team. The emergency team may consist of a number of healthcare providers including physicians; emergency medical technicians; certified athletic trainers; student athletic trainers; coaches; managers; and possibly, bystanders. Roles of these individuals within the emergency team may vary depending on various factors such as the number of members of the team, the athletic venue itself, or other extenuating circumstances. There are four basic roles within the emergency team. The first and most important role is immediate care of the athlete. The most qualified individual on the scene should provide acute care in an emergency situation. Individuals with lower credentials should yield to those with more appropriate training. The second role, equipment retrieval, may be done by anyone on the emergency team who is familiar with the types and location of the specific equipment needed. Student athletic trainers, managers, and coaches are good choices for this role. The third role, EMS activation, may be necessary in situations where emergency transportation is not already present at the sporting event. This should be done as soon as the situation is deemed an emergency or a life-threatening situation. Time is the most critical factor under emergency conditions. Activating the EMS system may be done by anyone on the team. However, the person chosen for this duty should be someone who is calm under pressure and who communicates well over the telephone. This person should also be familiar with the location and address of the sporting event. After EMS has been activated, the fourth role in the emergency team should be an individual who is responsible for meeting emergency medical personnel as they arrive at the site of the contest. Depending on the ease of access, this person should have keys to any locked gates or doors that may slow the arrival of medical personnel. A student athletic trainer, manager, or coach may be appropriate for this role.

Roles within the Emergency Team 1. Immediate care of the athlete 2. Emergency equipment retrieval 3. Activation of the Emergency Medical System 4. Direction of EMS to scene Activating the EMS System Making the Call: 9-1-1 (if available) telephone numbers for local police, fire department, and ambulance service Providing Information: name, address, telephone number of the caller number of athletes condition of athlete(s) first aid treatment initiated by first responder specific directions as needed to locate the emergency scene other information as requested by dispatcher

When forming the emergency team, it is important to adapt the team to each situation or sport. It may be advantageous to have more than one individual assigned to each role. This allows the emergency team to function although certain members may not always be present. Emergency Communication Communication is the key to quick delivery of emergency care in athletic trauma situations. Athletic trainers and emergency medical personnel must work together to provide the best possible care to injured athletes. Communication prior to the event is a good way to establish boundaries and to build rapport between both groups of professionals. If emergency medical transportation is not available on site during a particular sporting event then direct communication with the emergency medical system at the time of injury or illness is necessary. Access to a working telephone or other telecommunications device, whether fixed or mobile, should be assured. The communications system should be checked prior to each practice or competition to ensure proper working order. A back-up communications plan should be in effect should there be failure of the primary communication system. The most common method of communication is a public telephone. However, a cellular telephone is preferred if available. At any athletic venue, whether home or away, it is important to know the location of a workable telephone. Pre-arranged access to the telephone should be established if it is not easily accessible. Emergency Equipment All necessary emergency equipment should be at the site and quickly accessible. Personnel should be familiar with the function and operation of each type of emergency equipment. Equipment should be in good operating condition, and personnel must be trained in advance to use it properly. Emergency equipment should be checked on a regular basis and its use rehearsed by emergency personnel. The emergency equipment available should be appropriate for the level of training of the emergency medical providers. It is important to know the proper way to care for and store equipment as well. Equipment should be stored in a clean and environmentally controlled area. It should be readily available when emergency situations arise.

The University of Alabama's TIDE PRIDE donor program continues to be a vital link in the success of the Crimson Tide. The TIDE PRIDE football ticket priority program was kicked off in September of 1987 for the 1988 football season. It was an immediate success, raising approximately $6 million per year in 1988-89, $7 million in 1990-92, $8 million in 1993-97; $10 million in 1998-2000, $14 million in 2001-05 and $20 million in 2006. With the South End Zone expansion in 2010, TIDE PRIDE now raises approximately $25 million each year. The 2012 year will mark the 25th year for the TIDE PRIDE program. Our participants' love is shown through their continued support to the University and this enables us to provide quality athletic programs each year.

gameday traditions
Before home games, there are a series of sights and sounds banging around Bryant-Denny Stadium that get the fans jacked up. One notable broadcast comes from Alabama's mascot, a giant red elephant called "Big Al." When the Crimson Tide football team runs out on the field, that elephant lets out a blood-curdling roar and the fans go wild. Another meaningful pregame tradition is the recording of coach Bear Bryant's gravelly voice being broadcast throughout the stadium, greeting fans before the home games. Of course, the sounds of 50,000 or more fans yelling "ROLL TIDE" at kickoff is classic.

The Crimson Tide/ Roll Tide

The term Crimson Tide was coined by Hugh Roberts, past sports editor for the Birmingham Age-Herald. He used the nickname to describe the 1907 Auburn-Alabama game played in Birmingham. The game, played in a sea of crimson mud, was the last game played between the two rivals until 1948 when the series resumed. The term coined because the red mud stained the Alabama white jerseys crimson. Alabama held Auburn, the favorite to win, to a 6-6 tie, gaining the name the Crimson Tide. Roll Tide was said to illustrate the Alabama varsity running on the field. It was said the team looked like the tide was rolling in thus gaining the chant Roll Tide.

Walk of Champions
The Walk of Champions takes place two hours before every home football game day. The Alabama football team arrives at the front of the stadium and fans from all over line up to cheer and wish the Crimson Tide good luck as they walk to the stadium.

The Million Dollar Band

The University of Alabama's marching bandthe Million Dollar Bandis highly regarded. They've been an important part of the Crimson Tide's game-day traditions for nearly 100 years. With 400 members strong, the band sounds like a million dollars. If you get to Bryant-Denny Stadium at the right time, you may be lucky enough to hear the band warm up to "Sweet Home Alabama." And when the Tide scores and the Million Dollar Band launches into the Alabama fight song, "Yea Alabama," you can't help but swell up with team pride.

Fight Song

Yea Alabama! is Alabamas fight song played by The Million Dollar Band after every touchdown made at football games and at other sporting events. Memorize the words to The University of Alabama Fight Song. You will be singing it multiple times at every football game:
Yea, Alabama! Drown 'em Tide! Every 'Bama man's behind you; Hit your stride! Go teach the Bulldogs to behave, Send the Yellow Jackets to a watery grave! And if a man starts to weaken, That's a shame! For 'Bama's pluck and grit Have writ her name in crimson flame! Fight on, fight on, fight on, men! Remember the Rose Bowl we'll win then! Go, roll to victory, Hit your stride, You're Dixie's football pride, Crimson Tide!
