    I love me some Paul Bear Bryant quotes.

    "Hell, no! A tie is like kissing your sister!" After being asked if he had considered going for a field goal when trailing by three points.
    "I ain't never been nothing but a winner." Probably the most famous one of his.
    "Here's a twenty, bury two." After being asked to chip in ten dollars to help cover the cost of a sportswriters funeral.
    "Tough times dont last, but tough people do."
    "I'll put you through hell, but at the end of it all we'll be champions."
    last, but not least: "It's not the will to win that matters - everyone has that. It's the will to prepare to win that matters." I think that's extremely true.
