Twice As Nice

Bryant was fond of saying that, "Losing doesn't make me want to quit, it makes me want to fight that much harder." At the University of Alabama, Bryant didn't suffer through too many losses. It's remarkable that over a 25-year career in Tuscaloosa he lost just 46 games, an average of about two per season. It's one of the reasons Bryant is the most revered football coach in Alabama history and among the top coaches in the history of college football. His record at UA speaks for itself: 232-46-9. He won an SEC-record 146 games, 13 conference titles and went 12-10-2 in bowl games. His teams had two dynastic runs -- 1961-'66 and 1973-'79 -- that each won three titles.-- Alex Scarborough
