Sometimes, individual University departments have activities, face painting, etc., usually on the quad.
The University Supply Store (a/k/a “Supe Store”) is in the Ferguson Student Center, but there’s always a big tent on The Quad with lots of apparel, books, and other memorabilia. Also, they’ve recently opened a small brick-and-mortar store on University across from Gallette’s, in addition to the larger one near the soon-to-be-demolished old Tutwiler dorm.
Keep in mind, Coach Bryant died almost 40 years ago. A lot of fans weren’t even born during the second heyday in the late-70s, let alone the first one in the 60s, and even fewer have clear memories of either. The OFC revels, but it might as well be ancient Rome for a lot of the younger folks.
So while it concentrates on the Bryant years, it’s also about Alabama football history in general.
Still, if you haven’t been, or if you’re an Alabama football history buff, it’s definitely worth a visit. The museum shop is small, but has some cool stuff.
