The Essence of “TEAM”
  • "No coach has ever won a game by what he knows; it's what his players know that counts.“
  • "I'm just a simple plowhand from Arkansas, but I have learned over the years how to hold a team together. How to lift some men up, how to calm others down, until finally they've got one heartbeat, together, a team."

Coach Bryant instinctively knew that a team member had two roles, one the designated role of the player; the other, the psychological role the player defaults to under stress. He excelled at managing that psychological role.

With three hundred twenty-three career wins, Bryant was lauded as the “winningest” coach in college football history. His leadership was the Alabama Crimson Tide's cornerstone to two hundred thirty-two wins, six national championships, and twenty-three straight bowl appearances.
