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...

It's at home and I think we will be understanding our new system and coaches by then.

Purdue is deeper into the first season of a new staff. And it is at home where the crowd is more of a factor.

Later in the season. The mini game is #1 and we'll have some kinks to work out. BUT I think we win both. With good coaching we'll finally put Mini in our rear view mirror.

I thought we did really well with the defensive and offensive line, plus the most in-state recruits since 98!

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.
