What he has been able to accomplish, in today's world of parity in college football, is nothing short of amazing.

SEC gets the athletes these days. Easy to coach when you have those kids. Best coach in SEC? Yes.

Can't compare eras. Osborne retired when he was five years younger than Saban is now--who knows if he would have won more? Wilkinson, Bryant, Rockne, Leahy? Only a partial list. Yes, he is great. but let's just calm down with the superlatives. No one has to be the best ever...

If he had done what he has done at Alabama at Michigan State I would say yes! However doing so at a school like Alabama with the resources and SEC I say hell no. In my opinion TO would have 10 titles if he coached at bama not three.

No way to prove he is--too many factors involved. Number of championships statistically puts him up high, but… How about outcomes in the lives of young men?

By far, the best recruiter. Not close to the best coach.

Access to crop of great athletes within recruiting area. A very good coach and has hired a good staff. But can not compare different time periods.

Bear, Switzer, Osborne, and Bowden didn't have social media at their disposal. Access to recruits is literally at the end of Saban's fingertips. Old school coaches had to actually hit the road and FIND players.

when he can win by not cheating at Recruiting by over singing recruits and still have success without 5 star players then maybe he will be compared to Osborn

The Bear at Bama is still #1, followed by Bud Wilkinson and Tom Osborne.

Too many losses compared to other coaches at this point in his career. Didn't earn 2 title games but SEC bias put Bama in despite better, more worthy teams from elsewhere.

Best recruiter, yes. Best coach? I can't say since I would be comparing him to all other coaches that were under different coaches throughout the years, including Bear Bryant.

When you continually get the best players it is not hard to win. Try recruiting to the middle of nowhere and win 3 championship in 4 years with 3 star players.

"All time" is too broad in comparing different eras. In the mid 20th century, 20-30 years constituted an era. By the end of the 20th, it was down to 20 years. Now in the 21st, it's shortened to 10 years as so many changes in budgets, recruiting, player development, and stay in college vs. the NFL...

Give him time to see if he can figure out a winning formula here. It's not like anyone else has been successful. Not much to lose. It's too bad there has been so little success. I think Husker fans would be overly supportive of the program especially with some improvement.

Let's face it. With a few rare exceptions, Husker basketball has never been better than mediocre at best. Let's give Fred plenty of runway to turn things around. We certainly don't have much to lose (pun not intended).

Do you think Trev Alberts was correct to push for the coaching staff changes before season end?

It was right to do sooner than later

Should have waited until season was over

The defense has made progress. The offense not so much. The real problem is Frost's dedication to Martinez. Adrian is a great guy, but his minuses exceed his pluses.

The production was there from those coaches. Better to make the decision then, so you can still have a positive impact with recruiting.

I imagine the transfer portal had a lot to do with the timing.

The team was not going to become better with their existing staff. Make the cut and start improving.

If you are not going to make new hires before the end of the season anyway, what was the purpose in firing them now? It will be interesting to see how the offense performs, but I can't see this as beneficial.
