EDSBS and Godfrey put out a really good piece on Alabama Football that I recommend everyone take 10 minutes to read. Contrary to the title, the article does not once suggest that the dynasty will never end, but discusses the numerous ways that Alabama has separated itself from their competition, and how they are able to do so.
Three quotes that I found most interesting:
The Buckeyes recruited 192 total four- and five-star prospects since 2007. In the same time span, Alabama signed 236 four/five star recruits. The 44-recruit difference between Ohio State and Alabama represents two full recruiting classes all by itself.
DAMN. Bama has literally signed two classes-worth more of blue chips than the next best recruiting team.
The recruiting happens mostly via phone calls because Saban doesn't even text, much less send DMs to people.
Crazy that they don't rely on social media for recruiting.
"People who visit the program or coaches who come through, do you know what they're jealous of? It's not the buildings or stadiums. Everyone is in complete alignment. From the administration down to everyone in the department or the coaches, anyone who touches [the team]. Same goals, same philosophy."
This may be the one thing that Saban and Dabo have in common.
Alabama is averaging 1.3 losses/year in the Saban era, good for 141-20.
