Monday morning Mr. Tider Insider Rodney Orr joined Host Gary Harris to remember the legendary Coach "Bear" Bryant, who passed away January 26, 1983. Before providing a recruiting update.

"I've got a different perspective from the whole thing," Orr told Host Harris. "Because, being born in Mobile, and then moving to Corpus Christi, Texas, in the mid-60's. Having Coach Bryant, these teams that he put on the field in the late-60's. Winning two national championships, should've been three."

"And then the 70's being from out there," Orr continued with Harris. "His teams, Coach Bryant kind of become my identity. Made me proud to be from the state of Alabama."
