    He was quite a gamer who played hurt a lot. Saw him limp onto the field for his first appearance in the 1964 GT game with 90 seconds left in the half in a scoreless game. 14-0 Bama at halftime!

    i dont know what game it was...or who the player was but Bear had another good one.


    The player had gotten two 15yd personal fouls......Bryant said (as the player is walking to the bench for the rest of the game..."Your not worth 30 yds to the University of Alabama boy."


    Not gonna lie, that would intemidate the crap out of me.
