Bear Bryant Alabama Football Quotes Winning Losing

Today is 10/10/10 and every Alabama fan is aware of what happened yesterday in Columbia, South Carolina. Bama fans are used to winning, and they should be. With 29 consecutive regular season victories dating back to the 2007 football season, another National Championship, and their first Heisman trophy winner, these are good times for the Tide. This minor setback increases the pressure to win out the remainder of the season. It is time to keep that chin up, learn from this loss, and return to your winning ways.

Here are 10 quotes from Paul ‘Bear’ Bryant to encourage Alabama fans:

1) It’s awfully important to win with humility. It’s also important to lose. I hate to lose worse than anyone, but if you never lose you won’t know how to act. If you lose with humility, then you can come back.

2) I think the most important thing of all for any team is a winning attitude. The coaches must have it. The players must have it. The student body must have it. If you have dedicated players who believe in themselves, you don’t need a lot of talent.

3) Losing doesn’t make me want to quit. It makes me want to fight that much harder.

4) I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games.

5) If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride – and never quit – you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.

6) I have tried to teach them to show class, to have pride, and to display character. I think football, winning games, takes care of itself if you do that.

7) I honestly believe that if you are willing to out-condition the opponent, have confidence in your ability, be more aggressive than your opponent and have a genuine desire for team victory, you will become the national champions. If you have all the above, you will acquire confidence and poise, and you will have those intangibles that win the close ones.

8) First there are those who are winners, and know they are winners. Then there are the losers who know they are losers. Then there are those who are not winners, but don’t know it. They’re the ones for me. They never quit trying. They’re the soul of our game.

9) If we’d beaten ‘em, I wouldn’t be going out.

10) If wanting to win is a fault, as some of my critics seem to insist, then I plead guilty. I like to win. I know no other way. It’s in my blood.

  • For as long as I can remember I have been for Bama even beinmg raised in Florida and watching some games by video I love the Tide through ups and downs. So just remember win, lose or draw we are the one and only Crimson Tide.

  • Does one sentence come out of an Alabama fan’s mouth that doesn’t have Bear Byrant in it. No other school’s fans live in the past as much as freaking Bama fans. Get over it.

  • Don Trammel’s father delivered me on Thanksgiving day many years ago. I was BORN an Alabama fan & always will be! I always thought Bear Bryant was 4th in line to the throne of God. 1.God the Father 2. Jesus the Son 3. The Holy Spirit 4. Bear Bryant. I swear to ya’ll this is true, at church, home, school, anywhere prayers were prayed; “Coach & the boys” were always included! If you cut your finger, any of you; I bet your blood will be Crimson, too!

  • My heart belongs to every Bama team. I think that Coach Bear Bryant is the greatest coach that ever lived…and Nick Saban will get there.

  • I was born and raised in Texas but, have been a Crimson Tide fan since the 1st time I watched the Tide play on TV. Obviously Doug doesn’t have the slightest clue who the BEAR was or what it means to be a TIDE fan. Just yesterday my 4 year old son was telling me how GOD created the earth and he told me that on the 7th day GOD rested and i told him but on the 8th day GOD created the ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE football team. He told me ROLL TIDE dad! Boy am I proud.
