Last year's Iron Bowl was a game Alabama players will probably always remember. The second-ranked Crimson Tide's coaches aren't letting them forget it, that's for sure. Alabama soared to an utterly one-sided 24-0 lead over Auburn and appeared poised to squash the Tigers' national championship hopes. It ended with a 28-27 Auburn win in the greatest collapse in Tide football history - and the biggest ever comeback for the Tigers. Signs reminding `Bama players of what happened popped up in the football building shortly after the loss. Tailback Trent Richardson says they aren't necessary. Says Richardson, ''You've got to have that in the back of your head.'' Center William Vlachos says ''it's something that we'll remember for the rest of our lives.'' The bitter rivals meet again on Saturday.
