Bear Bryant became coach of Ags in 1954 and took his team to Junction, Texas (Stalag 17) for August training. He took about 100 players and came back with 30-35 hard bitten ones who would hit anything moving. His teams ran the ball (John David Crow) and played mean defense to be successful. They were top ten several years. Three off that stinging defense (Pardee, Crow and Charlie Krueger) are in College Hall of Fame. Bryant was at Ag 1954-1957, but got them on probation for illegal recruiting, before leaving for Alabama.
