well then someone please explain to me then if he's such a great coach, great motivator and a great x's and o's guy why didn't he succeed on the pro level where the talent is spread across the board?//
You actually managed to ask a dumber question than Ghazi did in the OP.
Did you just start watching sports? The NFL and CFB are completely different sports practically. Many coaches don't make the transition well. There's also an absolute shitload of successful college players that aren't successful at the pro level.
Tonight showed that Notre Dame was completely outclassed as far as speed, especially in their secondary and their skill position. And they were no match for the powerful offensive line of the Tide.
Clearly Brian Kelly wasn't outcoached, he was just "outtalented"
Lord Saban, great coach or great recruiter?
Now to answer your question, no one outclasses Saban in terms of the amount of work he puts in. He is a great recruiter, and a great in-game coach, but the thing he does the absolute best is hire a staff around him that develops players to their maximum potential on the college level, this includes himself.
His teams are so disciplined. He governs that team with an iron fist, but his players love him.
