3 Things You Should Ever Do About A Mistake

The college bowl season upon us I believe there are over 30 bowl games this year. Here in San Diego, we have two bowl games the Poinsettia Bowl and the Holiday Bowl.

I came across this quote from one of the top college coaches of all time Alabama Crimson Tide’s Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant.

“When you make a mistake, there are only three things you should ever do about it: admit it, learn from it, and do not repeat it.”

~ Paul “Bear” Bryant

From Bear Bryant ‘simply the best there ever was’ By Mike Puma

“His nickname was Bear. Now imagine a guy that can carry the nickname Bear,” says Joe Namath on ESPN Classic’s SportsCentury series.

After breaking the record for career victories by a college football head coach, Paul (Bear) Bryant called himself a tired old man who never got tired of football. When Bryant finally retired, he didn’t receive an opportunity to enjoy life away from the game, if that were possible for him. He died 28 days after coaching his last game.

While Bryant’s 323 major-college victories have been eclipsed by Penn State’s Joe Paterno and Florida State’s Bobby Bowden, Bryant left a legacy that encompassed more than 37 winning seasons overall and five Associated Press national championships at Alabama. No college coach in the second half of the 20th century commanded a bigger presence. Bryant became an icon, a symbol of strength and moral righteousness as much as success.

“Even his peers in the coaching business felt in awe of him,” Paterno said. “He had such charisma. He was just a giant figure.”

Bryant’s record in 38 years at Maryland, Kentucky, Texas A&M and Alabama was 323-85-17 (.780). He took 29 teams to bowl games and led 15 to conference championships. In the 1960s and 1970s, no school won more games than Alabama (193-32-5).
