Over the weekend, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer did an interview with GridironNow.com where the topic of Alabama's consistency was discussed after their recent 16th title win. Which led to the question: is Nick Saban the best ever? Urban isn't ready to crown him that just yet...
“I certainly think he’ll (Saban) go down as one of the greatest in the history of college football,” Meyer said. “I know everybody knows that. But I don’t want to say ‘the best’ — one of the top two or three.”
“What he has is consistency in all areas — recruiting, developing players and holding a staff together,” Meyer said. “One of the issues I’ve had over the years is losing assistant coaches. They become head coaches (Tom Herman). He lost a couple this year and one became a head coach (Kirby Smart).
“But to sit here and talk about the job he’s done is senseless. That’s the marquee program again.”
