Bama has a proven track record of cheating. Its not really up for debate. That said I'd take Saban back in a heartbeat, he's the best that ever was IMHO.
Nope, sorry but why didnt he have similar success at LSU? I think all programs have boosters. All programs cheat. A fan buying a player a drink or a dinner at mcdonalds is cheating.
That said, Alabama has an advantage. Scheduling, Media bias, and Location. Even though LSU is close to texas, they are further from the talent rich states of GA and FL. Distance is never a factor for bama, hell they are closer to some parts of LA than BR is.
Honestly saban wouldn't have 3 out of 4 if he was at any other school, except for maybe UT and Ohio State. Because of recruiting and the weak arse schedule those teams play.
Again, what teams would ever be considered to have a rematch? Bama, ND, OSU, and prob Michigan. And that is based solely on their past accomplishments. I dont know of any team that can sit at home the last weak of the season, not win their division and not win their conference and still back their way into the bcs title game.
