On a sunny Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Bob Baumhower’s successes in life came together at the epicenter of the college football world.
For Baumhower, his legendary playing days at Alabama and his culinary empire blended together for the perfect day at the Capstone. It was there, in front of friends and family, he and the 1973 team were honored but only after he and his Victory Grill team were showcased as the ultimate food fest to a college football audience hungry for kickoff.
Baumhower, along with (President of Aloha Hospitality) Spencer Baumhower and chefs Zack Compton and Steve Zucker, presented ESPN’s “College GameDay” crew of Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, Pat McAfee and Rece Davis a feast only suitable for the best of college football tailgates. Like all great players - before and after him – he credited his team.
“The biggest thrill for me being around that again, it had been a lot of years, is watching the guys Spencer, Steve and Zach work so hard to get it done,” Bob Baumhower told AL.com. “They just did a fantastic job. It was so much fun on ‘GameDay.’ It was just a joy. It was one of those memories I’m just not going to forget.”
