Alabama is number one. Why? Does the State of Alabama have superior athletes? Not anymore than any other state. Do Alabamians have a greater football culture than most other states? No, not anymore so than several other states. In my opinion Alabama is number one because they have right now one of, if not THEE greatest coaches in college football history. He can out coach and out recruit the best. Nick Saban is who I wanted Texas to pursue a few years back, but some of the dominate orange bloods interfered, which they always do, and thought that Saban wasn't potentially orange blooded enough. They're still looking for DX Bible's or Darrel Royal's Clone. Those guys, Bible and Royal were great and great as Great gets, but it's time to move on. Football's a different game than it was in 1943, 1963 or 1969. No more 3 yards and a cloud of dust winning the big games. AND one big point, the game is much more competitive than it was back in the 50s and 60s. More schools have developed first class athletic programs. To win it all nowadays you need a more pro style offense AND defense. And Saban is number one at doing all that. He is very smart, as smart as coaches get. But when he was available, Texas had Mac Brown at the helm. Then Alabama got hold of Saban and then Brown fell out of favor of the ORANGE blooded powers that be.
Back in the 30s Texas was in need of a coach. And being they were used to winning, they wanted a great coach. So they pursued Dana X Bible away from A&M and Nebraska (He had gone back and forth between those two schools for a few years). They got him and they went on to many winning seasons up into the 50s before he retired. This is what I was hoping against hope they would do with Saban. even though he was already established at Alabama I was praying Texas would try to lure him away, but evidently they chose not to for whatever reasons. Nowadays iffin you want to win it all you gotta hire the best and right now, in this time and day, I believe Nick Saban is the BEST!!!

I don't know if Saban outcoaches anyone, but he sure as heck is the best in the country at recruiting. As one die hard Alabama fan told me, he doesn't recruit, he selects.
BTW, their QB is from Channel View, Tx.
