A Birthday Present for the Bear
Yesterday would have been Paul Bear Bryant's 97th birthday. In honor of the occasion, the number one ranked Crimson Tide crushed Penn State, a team Bear memorably beat four teams (including the famous "goal line stand" in the 79 Sugar Bowl for a national championship) during his illustrious career. The final score of 24-3 failed to capture the one-sided nature of the evening. But it was a fitting present to the great coach who did so much to build an already-great legacy of football excellence to a level unequaled in college football history.
And happy birthday, Bear.
