Paul "Bear" Bryant is both legend and folklore, not only in the state of Alabama - but throughout America. He has inspired so many people in so many fields and endeavors beyond football.

In Alabama he has transcended mere Sainthood. It's a fair statement.

I actually stood within four feet of him on two occasions, but the story I most often relate pertains to his funeral. The procession was so long - so many cars and vehicles that it was noted in the local paper, "at the time the first cars of the procession were arriving at Elmwood Cemetery (in Birmingham) - the last cars were just pulling out of the service in Tuscaloosa (65 miles away)."

If this was an exaggeration, it was only a slight one. I watched from an interstate overpass near Birmingham's Legion Field. If the interstate system hadn't been legally shut down it had been overtaken. Cars passed for hours and hours with their headlights on. In was a sad day on the state of Alabama.

Robert Newhouse #44

This is a typical Robert Newhouse photo IMO, as appears to be fighting for every extra yard possible. He was that type of player. When I think of Newhouse, I think of the one I first saw in college playing for University of Houston. He was a solid pro, but in college he was something else.

Houston ran the Veer with Robert as the trailing pitch back, but they also ran a lot of dives and counters. Newhouse would break through the line and carry tacklers on his back into the secondary. It usually took three or four guys to get him on the ground. He gained 1,797 yards as a Senior and almost won the Heisman.

There was a funny story in the Birmingham News about 2 years ago - an interview with Coach Bryant's personal haberdasher at the time. The guy says that he found (or made - I forget) the original houndstooth hat for Bryant as part of an ensemble (jacket, pants etc). Bryant liked the hat so much that he started wearing it with everything! The guy told of how he had to approach the coach and explain to him that the pattern clashed with the various stripes, plaids and other colors the coach liked to wear. Bear Bryant is known for the houndstooth hat, but he did (eventually) wear other patterns.
