Yes yes, I've got to ask.  After watching Brian Kelly talk about Nick Saban's model of coaching football at Alabama, I got to thinking about Saban's place in the college football ranks.  Now, Bear Bryant's exploits were before my time, but I've heard countless stories about how he was, in a sense, the godfather of coaching college football.  All of the other coaches looked up to what he accomplished in his career as "how to do it".  Saban appears to have reached that same level among other coaches and programs across America.

Do you think Nick Saban has truly duplicated what the rest of the country sees as the model for building a successful college football program?

Saban needs to first be responsible for about half the "you are not allowed to do this, cheater..." rules in the NCAA rule book.

I've had discussion with friends about this and until he wins a few more NC he ain't the bear yet. I do believe he's doing it in a much harder era with many rules to deal with the bear didn't one being recruiting. The bear took players other teams wanted to set them on the bench and keep you from getting them. Every team has players today...

Here's what I do like he's doing it the same way no surprise hit you in the mouth... Can you stop it football and hella defense like Bama has been known for forever.

For years teams wanted one of bears boys Dye, Stallings, etc.. kinda the same way many they are doing Saban boys now which is pretty cool and really doubt out of who the best is right now.

Well dern Colin Cowturd is all over his show The Turd saying Saban is going to the NFL after Bama beats Notre Dame. Also said the reason the NFL drafts from the SEC so much is because of the relationship coaches have.

Dumbest yankee shat I've heard in awhile.

Saban is a driven man, intent on excellence. It would behoove anyone who loves winning to at least give some passing interest to his philosophies. As for Coach Bryant... the future will tell whether Saban can match his accomplishments or pass them. What we know now is that Saban is a success and we are very fortunate to have him at the helm of our much loved Crimson Tide.

That is truly shocking..... that the Brown's owner (UTK Board of Trustee) wants to kill two birds with one stone.  

But what would be more shocking is Saban being played.

"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

-- Derrick Thomas
