Nick Saban

Average Recruiting Ranking in the SEC: 1st
Winning Percentage: 1st
Hard Working Rating: 0

Despite what you might think, this is pretty good for Nick Saban. He always recruits at the highest level in the SEC, and he always has them at the top of the SEC in results.

It might be easy to say Saban doesn’t have anything to worry about because he always has the best players. And you’re right. But to meet those expectations every single year is as impressive as anything else he has done since he got to Alabama.

Crimson Tide fans expect to compete for National Championships year in and year out. And they may not win one every year, but they are almost always in the mix for them. And that is really all you can ask for.
