    Bear Bryant isnt an age thing, so dont feel old. I know who he is and I'm young :) Even a casual college football fan should have atleast heard of him.

    I won't pick on you, but I'll explain a little so you know why everyone is so surprised. Bear Bryant was the head coach of Alabama forever, and won 6 national championships. Legend wouldn't begin to describe him.
    Paul "Bear" Bryant is about as big as anyone could be in college football.

    EDIT: BTW, nice trivia question. I didn't remember who, but I knew it was a very big name. Now that you gave it away I remember hearing about it. BTW, I'm not exactly old either.

    I had NO idea! Man am I lucky I read this when I did. I'm finishing my research paper on the Miami Dolphins as I type this. This will be a nice addition to my paper.

    Thanks Mike.

    You didn't know who Bear Bryant was? I guess growing up in Alabama and going to the University of Alabama Bear Bryan has been kinda force fed to me all my life. But still...anyone who even attempts to call themselves a football fan has to know about the Bear.

    I know there's a movie out with Tom Berenger playing Bear that was made about 5 or 6 years ago. Pretty good, you should see it.
