Bear Bryant QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A few minutes ago, I had a hard time getting through the lobby because of all the people. After today, that won't be happening.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
All this BS about my name recruiting never meant much. I didn't recruit any studs. The ordinary ones played for me.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
Back 12 years ago, when Dr. Mathews was president here, we had a plan that when I got ready to quit, we'd bring a certain guy in and he'd take over that day and I'd leave. But as time wore on, I realized that wouldn't have been good at all.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
Everybody's got pretty good players now, more players than there've ever been. If you play poorly, you're going to get beat.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
Georgia Tech beat us and Mississippi Southern tied us last year, and Texas beat us after we had the game won. We only played about five games the way we were capable of playing and lost one of those.

I can remember loving to recruit. I knew I was going to do my best. But traveling and recruiting doesn't appeal to me any more. It's not as much fun as it used to be.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
I didn't have a thing to do with picking a coach, and didn't want to. But I didn't think they'd pick one I didn't like.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
I feel bad about it. I've been telling them for 10 years that this had to happen, was going to happen. I think they can get jobs.

Quotation of Bear Bryant
I plan on staying at Alabama for the rest of my career. I guarantee that I'll be here for you through it all, regardless of what happens.

I think I'm telling the truth. I sat by Ray Perkins at the Hall of Fame dinner in New York, and at that time he didn't know he was our coach and I didn't either.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
I think when it really hit me that I had to get out to keep the program from going down was after the Mississippi Southern game this year.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
I want to go home while it's quiet around there and get my mail out the first thing. Then I'll help them in recruiting if I can.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
I want to make sure I don't interfere with the success of that team next year. I don't see any way I could go to practice like most of 'em do, and not hurt the team. I'd go nuts if I tried doing that.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
I'd have to rekindle the fire and work a lot harder and get a lot tougher. At my age, I think it's kinda stupid to try to coach.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
I'll put you through hell, but at the end of it all we'll be champions.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
I'm happy with the coach we have. I think any one of the ones I asked them to consider would've been good.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
I've had many a player tell me all through high school and right up until signing day that they were coming to Alabama, then they signed with somebody else.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
If I miss coaching that much, I could go to some little school where they didn't recruit, where all the kids wanted to go. I believe I could find somewhere to coach.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
If we'd beaten 'em, I wouldn't be going out.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
It's been years since I've had a real input in the game anyway. For this game, I've just tried to keep all the other stuff away from the players and coaches.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
Nearly every coach I've talked with tells me that the attention you get from media and other people is the thing you miss most. I don't know if that's right.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
Never quit. It is the easiest cop-out in the world. Set a goal and don't quit until you attain it. When you do attain it, set another goal, and don't quit until you reach it. Never quit.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
The fun never goes out, but it changes with the years, with winning and losing.
Quotation of Bear Bryant
The only people I've ever known that retired, resigned, and then went on to be satisfied were Bob Devaney at Nebraska and D.X. Bible at Texas.
