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...

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

I watched the Tulane game and I think Buffalo is a good team that the D shutdown. Plus I went to school in the 90’s and want us so badly to step up on National tv. We are due!! Skers

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

they have talent everywhere. We have a tiny bit of talent. It's a talent landslide.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

Are you concerned about the investigation into the Husker's use of analysts and off-campus workouts?

Lots of teams are doing the exact same thing. Make everyone else accountable before just punishing the Huskers.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
