130 days

On this date in Crimson Tide history:

April 27, 1941: Lee Roy Jordan was born in Excel, Ala.

April 27, 2011: A devastating tornado ripped through the heart of Tuscaloosa, killing 53 people including six university students. Among them were Loryn Brown, the well-known daughter of former Alabama football player Shannon Brown, and Ashley Harrison, the girlfriend of long-snapper Carson Tinker.

Crimson Tide quote of the day:

He's confident, and his teams play like that.” — Texas coach Mack Brown on Nick Saban
