Other schools have museums or displays about sports, but the size and scope of the Bryant Museum make it unusual, said Peter Tirrell, past president of the Association of College and University Museums and Galleries.
"We all know who Bear Bryant is -- and I say 'is' instead of 'was' because we all think he's still alive," said Tirrell, who works at the University of Oklahoma, another traditional football power.
In some ways, Bryant's legend really is still growing.
