Yup. I dislike Saban as much as anyone, mostly for his arrogance, but his NFL time was only average because he never got to get they guy at QB that he wanted. I believe he was adamant about getting Brees, and he eventually ended up in New Orleans. We all know how that turned out for the Saints. He had to settle for Culpepper who was already past his prime.
