Despite the playbook being lifted, Alabama still won the National Championship Monday night with a 26-23 win in overtime. Apparently so, because we're all talking about it.
There is a missing playbook out there that belongs to the University of Alabama football team.
Dunbar had left his backpack in a meeting room in the Marriott Marquis around 12:45 p.m. ET on January 6.
The playbook belonged to Alabama defensive line coach Karl Dunbar. The backpack reportedly contained $1,320 in cash, two cellphones, an iPad, a passport, sunglasses, reading glasses and a gameday notebook. Police later found some of the items stolen in a restroom on another floor of the hotel.
Police said he was in a hotel meeting room Saturday afternoon with several other Alabama staff members, discussing game strategy.
Side note: what are the chances this playbook shows up at SEC Media Days this summer in the hands of some Bammer looking to get it signed by Saban?
Police are looking for the suspect, and they have a photo of the suspect with the backpack.
