[quote]college football history?[/quote]
So history goes back to when Saban got to LSU ? :lol:
You Auburn folks disappoint. The first tandem that popped in my mind was Pat Sullivan and Terry Beasley at Auburn from 1969 to 1971. They had some good offensive teammates. Auburn used the 'wingback'...

Legion Field, the Birmingham Americans vs the Southern California Sun. Well,there were other games that night,too. Fun stuff at first and pretty good crowds. But when college football and the NFL got going,they were cooked. Birmingham won this game, 11-7.

Two different topics. Go back and read McElroy's comments thoroughly and some in this thread. Anyone who disputes Saban's success in Baton Rouge is crazy. Anyone in 2014 who STILL maintains LSU's success is because of Saban is equally crazy....

you just screwed up the narrative. Don't tell anyone that LSU was ranked 6th in the nation ,higher than Tennessee, the night UT beat Florida in 1998 just 14 months before Saban was hired. NAIA talent and contemplation of dropping the sport works better....
