They say the first one's always the best, and in the case of legendary Alabama coach Paul Bryant, it might just be right. The Bear got his first chip in style, with a team that went 11-0, scoring 297 points and giving up just 25. Saying the '61 squad was Bryant's best is saying something, too: the "Bear" nickname would prove to be fitting, as the coach went into beast mode and would go on to win six (half of 'Bama's 12) national titles.
