Gary Pinkel Thinks Nick Saban Is ‘Underrated’ & ‘Taken For Granted’.
Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports
Prior to his team taking on Alabama this weekend in the SEC Championship, Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel is giving Nick Saban some praise...

Do you agree? These two teams kick off at 4 p.m. on Saturday in Atlanta.

He is. He single handedly turned around that football program. In doing so, it increased school enrollment by almost double what it was from when I was there in 2004. Academics have in turn gone up, since the school can be more selective, etc.

It's a waterfall effect and it's all positive.

I think he's right. As a coach he realizes that Saban and Alabama get the best from whomever their opponents is that week. I don't think a lot of people realize how difficult that is to handle

Pinkel is projecting. If either of the two are underrated its Pinkel. Everyone already praises Saban but Pinkel rarely gets the acknowledgements he deserves for doing more with less.

Pinkel and Saban are former college FB team mates and likely still good friends.
