With all the years Spurrier has had to win national championships, he's done it only once.  With much fewer chances Saban has done it four times.  Who's the better coach?  And Saban has the higher winning percentage.  And higher bowl game winning percentage.  Saban's SEC and national championships have come at two different schools.  

 

The run first, pass first issue is meaningless.  It has nothing to do with how good a coach is.  Football is a game of imitation and any little success by anyone will be imitated by others.  And you don't have to be Tim Tebow, AJ McCarron or Johnny Football to know that it's not a pass first league anymore.  Even spurrier isn't pass first anymore, is he?  So who then is the great coach that gets all the wonderful credit for making the SEC a run first league again?

 

And if Saban wins another national championship next year, a total of five, four in the last five years, your logic would still say Spurrier is the better coach.  Spurrier will still have more sec titles and more sec wins and he'll have changed the league to pass first.  So doesn't that right there tell you something's wrong with your logic?  

 

Great coaches win championships.

Shouldn't put put Saban on college football's Mt. Rushmore, not just the SECs?
