Is Urban Meyer a better coach than Nick Saban?

It’s been a while since anybody bothered to ask who the best coach in college football is. Why would we? Nick Saban won three National Championships in four years and if four or five plays had gone differently could be playing for his sixth in eight years against Oregon. He’s dominated so thoroughly and so consistently at Alabama that there just wasn’t an answer besides...

The 2013-14 Michigan State Spartans went 13-1, won the Rose Bowl against Stanford, and finished the season ranked third in both the AP and Coaches Polls.
