Paul (Bear) Bryant

Bryant coached at 4 colleges over 38 years; directed Alabama to 6 national titles (1961,64-65, 1973, 78-79); retired in 1982 as the winningest coach of all time (323-85-17 record), 15 bowl wins, including 8 Sugar Bowls.
Happy Birthday Bear! Like Benc, I never got to watch him roam the sidelines. How truly fortunate are some of you who did. :D
Coach Bryant passed away when I was 12 years old. When your a kid you always tell people what you are going to do when you groww up. Mine was that I was going to Alabama to play football for Coach Bryant. Happy birthday COACH. RTR
Since today is such a historic anniversary, I thought I would share the following quote:

"If the government had been more diligent, September 11th would still only be known as Bear Bryant's birthday."
