because there is absolutely zero parity in womens sports. it's gotten better recently, but go back and look at the year to year final four for womens basketball, for instance, and see how many upsets there were (very few). There were usually at least 3 1 seeds in the final four. Girls softball, you have one good pitcher, she pitches almost every single game, not a lot of coaching involved there when you have the same pitcher no one can hit starting every game. It's a much tougher job being the head coach of a major mens team.


I think longevity should account for something on the Mount Rushmore so that's why I picked DD Breaux

Here's mine:

Bertman
Henry
Daddy Dale/Gunter
McClendon

Miles/Saban/Dietzel cancel eachother out with one NC each...so I'm going with the winningest coach.

I don't think anyone is denying that Saban brought LSU into national prominence.

However, he left and went to our biggest rival so f him in the a. It is what it is. He's a great coach and set LSU up for success, but screw him now.

Let's not allow Saban's recent success at Bama get in the way here. Yes, Saban built a program that was struggling. But he left after five years. I'd give Emmert equal part in establishing the program again by having foresight to see the potential in Saban. Credited, yes. But Saban is not exponentially better than Miles at LSU.

Credit Saban for doing what he did but the last couple years of keeping us from success definitely cancel that out.

Wasn't here as long as any coaches mentioned. Hasn't won more than any mentioned, and will end up on Bamas Rushmore. Will have coached linger and have more wins at a rival university. He doesn't belong.

You are trying to talk reason and logic to Saban nuthuggers that don't want to hear it.

Capitalizing phrases like that doesn't further your argument. It just makes you seem childish.
