Posted by partyrock on 1/13/2013 8:05:00 AM (view original):what is the point with that question?
So he could do this at any college, say Kentucky or Purdue?
he is running a beast of a program at alabama. not very likely any coach could win a national title in football at a school that isn't traditionally a powerhouse program. saban said it best, in college you can gain advantages. this isn't college basketball or college baseball where mid majors or lower level majors can compete for the national title. there is a reason the national title has only been won in college football by the major programs over the last 50 years with only a couple of exeptions (BYU, GATech, Colorado). But at the time Colorado was one of the stronger programs in the country.
I believe if anyone could turn losers like Kentucky, Purdue, Vanderbilt or Minnesota around it would be Saban.
If he was given 6-7 seasons without threat of firing he would have these teams on the thresh hold of being among the strongest programs in the country.
But its all conjecture since he isn't headed anywhere.
