Nick Saban's one of the country's best recruiters. All Nick Saban does (unless you're referring to his NFL career) is win.

Nick Saban On BCS Championship: Damn Game Cost Me A Week Of Recruiting

Nick Saban eats oatmeal cream pies for breakfast every day

By all indications, Alabama coach Nick Saban is a physically fit individual. If you didn’t know how old he was, you would have trouble guessing 61 just by looking at him.

Depth Chart As Issued By Alabama

Very early in the Nick Saban era at Alabama – like before the beginning of his first spring practice – we learned that Saban does not use a depth chart, at least not in the very public way that some coaches do.

Nick Saban Takes To The Preschool Lecture Circuit

In Warren St. John's GQ profile of Nick Saban, which is now part of the Alabama Board of Education curriculum for all high schools, we found out a few things about Saban that we previously didn't know.  First, and probably the most perfect statement Saban has ever made, is that after Alabama beat LSU to win the national championship in 2012, Saban said to a friend, "...

Kirk Hebstreit: ‘Defenses are practicing faking injuries’
