Visitor’s locker room at Bryant-Denny renamed

TUSCALOOSA – Bryant-Denny Stadium is not an easy place for opposing teams to play, and it just got a little tougher.

Opposing teams will see new wording above the visitor’s locker room starting next season. Inscribed are the words “The Fail Room” in foot-long red letters over the doorway.

But its not a slap at the opponent.

The visitor’s locker room has been named after University of Alabama donor, James M. Fail. The room was formally dedicated Monday.

UA Athletics Director Mal Moore said Fail graduated from UA in 1949 and has been a faithful supporter. Fail said he never thought he would have anything named in his honor.
