Alabama's coach cried three times BEFORE Alabama won the NCAAs
Alabama's place in golf history is secure after defeating Oklahoma State on Wednesday at the NCAA Championships.
Alabama's football team is not the only team on campus that has entered "dynasty" territory.
Its golf team has now won two of the last three NCAA championships after defeating Oklahoma State 4 and 1 on Wednesday at Prairie Dunes. It came in second the other time in a thrilling loss to Texas for the 2012 title.
Since 1987 only Augusta State (with Patrick Reed) had won back-to-back NCAA titles (2010 and 2011) before Alabama's run.
That's where the coach crying thing comes in. Bama's head man, Jay Seawell, was pretty fired up about his squad going to three straight title matches, much less winning two of them.
"I cried three times before we played today," Seawell said to the AP. "This is their legacy. They played for their legacy, to be known as one of the great teams in all of golf history."
It sounds hyperbolic but it's sort of true. Alabama is one of the great mini-dynasties in modern collegiate golf.
"It was 'One Shining Moment' today," Seawell continued. "I've never dreamed this big, to be part of something this special."
History is theirs now after the big win.
Roll birdies and eagles and match play and Tide.
