From there they get better and better. If you don't have a goal, you have to bleed em and gut em and get Cm back up," Bryant told the crowd. Bryant' told the alumni group the players have to be dedicated during the summer and show up in good shape. He said September is no time to start putting the team in shape. He commented he has no replacements as yet for Wayne Wheeler and Wilbur Jackson. The Alaibama coach said he likes the new rule concerning kickoffs and punts. "There'll be a lot less injuries but a lot more penalties. It will probably eliminate some of the more spectacular plays such aa klckoff returns and punt returns," he said. , Bryant commented he doesn't know what pro ball will do to the area. "I don't like to see anything that will hurt high school and college ball but I do like to see more coaches employed," he said. "The big thing is to have a good program. If Alabama and Auburn have good programs they will still draw. If they don't, we're in big, big trouble." Joe Riley, former tidestar, who introduced "the Bear', told the approximately 300 people gathered that when he and Bryant played for Alabama during the early and mid 30s they had discussed many times how great it would be to have a contract guaranteeing $100 a month for life. Bryant commented he earned $1,250 his first year and felt he was overpaid. He said now it feels funny being a $12,000 a year coach coaching a $400,000 a year player. Bryant, speaking softly with his rumbling voice, apologized _ to the audience, commenting Concepclon and Dan Driessen ^ nlg ablUty as a pubHc picked first pitches from big speak er was the equivalent of Don Wilson to slam late inning blocked punt, home runs and lift Cincinnati w.
