In 1974, Little, Brown published Bear Bryant's autobiography, written with John Underwood. In the book, Bryant said uncomplimentary things about a former player at Alabama. He didn't identify the player by name. Instead, he referred to him as "a cute little red-headed kid with freckles and big thick glasses.

Bryant Museum, attempts to explain the Bryant phenomenon to outsiders, he first tries to find each person's reference point to give them an idea of the impact the former coach had on the state.
