When Gene Stallings came to Texas A & M in December of 1964, there were a lot of players that were just eating their way through school. Dude McLean Class of 1965 ********** When we went through spring workouts in 1965 there were a few turds that should not have been out there and we would hit them hard and try to run them off. John Nilson Class of 1966 ********** After the first game under Coach Stallings in 1965 against LSU .. We ran over 100 wind sprints of around 100 yards each and this killed our legs for the rest of the season. Ronnie Lindsey Class of 1967 We ran 100yard dashes for over an hour on Monday and people were falling out and puking on the track and then getting in line to go again. Don Keohn Class of 1967 We ran about 100 or so wind sprints around 100 yards each and my rear end did not catch up with my body for three weeks! Grady Allen Class of 1968 ********** During the PE 317 wrestling and drills I thought to myself, it is not so much that what we are doing, but what we are accomplishing. Tom Murrah Class of 1966 ********** If you associate with a quitter, you will develop the attitude of a quitter! The personal theme of Coach Gene Stallings comes from the Bible; There is nothing better for a man to eat and drink and tell himself that his labor is good. This also I have seen is form the hand of God. Ecclesiastes 2:24. Gene Stallings Head Coach ********** When Coach Stallings arrived on campus it was the most impressive year of my life because I was just a dumb country boy and it changed my whole personality. Jerry Nichols Class of 1965
The explosive biography of the greatest college football coach in history. When Paul William "Bear" Bryant died on January 26, 1983, it was the lead story on the all three networks' evening news. New York City newspapers reported his death on their front pages. Three days later, America watched in awe as an estimated quarter of a million mourners lined the fifty-five mile stretch from Tuscaloosa to a Birmingham cemetery to pay their respects as his three-mile long funeral cortege drove by. Bryant's passing was noted with the kind of reverence our country reserved for statesmen or military leaders, though Paul "Bear" Bryant had insisted for much of his life that he was "just a football coach." For millions he was much more, he was the greatest coach the game ever saw, the heir to the tradition established by Knute Rockne. He took his Alabama Crimson Tide teams to an unmatched six national championships. But to the players, journalists and fans whose lives he touched in his more than half a century as a player and coach, he was the last symbol of values that transcended football—courage, discipline, loyalty, and hard work. To his critics, Bryant represented the dark side of big-time college football—brutality, fanaticism and blind adherence to authority. The real Bear Bryant was far more complex than either his admirers or detractors knew. While maintaining a public friendship with Alabama governor George Wallace, he continually sought ways to undermine the governor's segregationist policies, finally forcing a legendary football game in Birmingham with the University of Southern California that opened the floodgates to the integration of football at the University of Alabama, including its coaching staff. Old fashioned in his politics, he was nonetheless an admirer of Robert Kennedy, whom he planning to vote for in 1968. Allen Barra's The Last Coach traces Paul Bryant's rise from a family of truck farmers to recognition as the most successful and influential coach in the game's history. Through it all, Bryant's influence has not only endured but prevailed as his former players and assistants continue to define the best in not only college but professional football.
