During an appearance on ESPN’s First Take on Thursday morning, Alabama head coach Saban revealed the two things he prioritizes to have continued success...
quote:

“The two things that are most important are how do you bring players to your team, and then the second part of that is how do you develop them,” said Saban, as transcribed by On3. “So, we’ve had some great coaches here to develop them. We’ve had some very good people to recruit them. And we have a program that really promotes guys having more success in life because they were involved in the program. Whether it’s personal development, academic success, and how they develop as football players.

“So, there’s a lot of value in that. That’s what we try to create for our players, that’s why we get good players and we’ve had really good people to develop them.”

I'll give you some names that were nothing when Saban got them. Mike Johnson, Rashaad Johnson, Mark Ingram, Colin Peek, Terrance Cody, Barret Jones just to name a few. These guys were lightly recruited and Rashad was a walk on. Saban develops as well as anyone.

Is simply $$$$$ to get the best talent. Saban cant win and Alabama cant win with average players. Get the REC and the best players money can get into the program. Saban promoted how much NIL money Young got, $1,000,000 but now is against it because of the Aggies playing the same game with bigger pockets. Develop some 2-3 stars. Its easy to win 10 games a year with by far the highest rated recruits. Go back to MSU and lets see you develop and coach players to consistent 10 win seasons Nicky!!!

Young was on the team when NIL started. If you're gonna speak, speak about something you are versed in. Highest rated recruits, wrong again. UGA and Ohio st have currently have the highest star rankings of any teams. Developing 2-3 stars into national champs. Ok, list all the coaches that have do that.

Just admit you don't prepare players very well for after football? The Bear did, most of his players went on to have success after college & pro. There's a big difference in making an impact on players lives and just wanting the next NC.
