No 1. Paul "Bear" Bryant

The Buzz: Nick Saban is nipping at Bryant¿s heels, but we still give the edge to the Bear. He posted a 323¿85¿17 career record, won 14 SEC titles and six national championships. He was a three-time American Football Coaches¿ Association coach of the year and 12-time SEC coach of the year. Others have accomplished remarkable feats and regularly face much stronger competition, but Bryant still set the standard for excellence in college football.
