Nick Saban On Verge Of Becoming Alabama Legend

The Alabama Crimson Tide is on the verge of a dynasty in college football with the BCS Championship Game on Monday night. If Alabama wins, it will be three titles in the last four years and that will lead to questions about Nick Saban. Saban is sure to be courted by National Football League teams but this is a no-brainer. Saban isn’t going anywhere.

Saban has already coached in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins and it didn’t look like something that applied to him. Saban was mediocre at best with Miami and soon went back to the college game. That is where Saban becomes right there with the 18 or 19-year old kids. Saban has become a genius with Alabama and while teams like the Arizona Cardinals or San Diego Chargers seem like places that could work for Saban, I think it is a lost cause for any and all NFL teams.

I think Saban and the Crimson Tide will win their third title Monday night and Saban will go right up there with Bear Bryant at Alabama. The rest of college football is going to be staring at another Alabama championship and with it, Saban being at the top of the mountain again. Saban probably has another ten years of coaching left in him in my opinion and could find himself with another three or four titles before his time is over at Alabama. If that happens and Saban wins six or seven titles, you can expect something to be named after him when he does retire. Right now for NFL teams though, there is no way to pry Saban away.
