The legendary Bear Bryant once told a second string quarterback to go in the game and run out clock. The quarterback ran two plays, then throws a pass intercepted by an All American safety. The quarterback, who is the slowest man on field, catches him on 1 yard line. Other coach asked, how? And Bear Bryant said, “Well, coach, it’s like this. Your boy was running for 6 points, my boy was running for his life.” (Stories about Paul "Bear" Bryant)
