1. Nick Saban, Alabama — When he signed on with the Crimson Tide for $4 million a year, some people (OK, I was among them) questioned whether Saban could possibly be worth it.
Considering what he’s done in just three years, it was a bargain.
Simply put, Saban is the best coach in college football. When it comes to the combination of organization, recruiting, motivation and strategy, he has no peer.
