What blame is there to be given? Alabama is #1 in the only poll that counts. If they win out they will be going to the Final Four.

On average, when they are among the best in the nation, Alabama only has to get up for 2-3 games per year. That was true in 1974 and it's still true in 2014. There are very few teams on our schedu...

Bear Bryant after 7 seasons

Nick Saban after 7 seasons
79-15 (3 national championships)
I think we need to tone it down just a little bit. Saban has an 88-16 record at UA right now. Bryant finished with a 232-46-9 record at UA. Let's wait until after...

Bryant recruited nationally but the vast majority of the players he had on his roster were from Alabama and the other southern states. He enacted a policy of recruiting locally while he was at Kentucky and never really violated it for the rest of his career. He did get some national kids but he li...
