Ok I know I'm entering deep water here. But I'm almost ready to say Saban is a better Coach than Bear. Fire away.
if we win in Miami, the debate will grow that is for sure.

Overall better? Impossible to say. Best of each coaches' respective era? An emphatic HELL YEA!

That's it. That's what I was trying to say. !
No flame, because I know it is probably interesting for some to debate, but why does one have to be better than the other? Can't we just enjoy them?
More importantly - how great is it to have arguably the top two coaches of the different eras at The Capstone?!
Tim Brando said as much.
This is Alabama football!!
be hard to compare in one wat because of coach bryants longevity and its difficult to compare different eras. with that in mind i think that either was/is the best of their time. one thing that made coach bryant so special is that after two medicore seasons in the late 60`s and being kind of written off, took the wishbone,modified it and had one of if not the greatest runs in college football history. cns is by far the best of now and really has no peers. may actually be harder to win now than then. regardless isnt great to be an ALABAMA weather your 72, 52, or 22 yo! ROLL TIDE ! crimson tide born, crimson tide bred and when i die i`ll be crimson tide dead!
Choose not a life of limitation
what saban is doing right now with the scholarship limit of 85 total.....he is better than Bear if he wins against ND.
in Bear's time, there was no limit. So, if you were a rockstar head coach like Bear....you could get all the talent you want.
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
Step away from the crack pipe.
i would have agreed but then saban didn't call timeout
Vince Lombardi was asked how it felt to have the best football team in the world. He replied, I don't know. We haven't played Alabama yet.
I am just glad along with others that both were here at the Capstone. I love both.
