Anonymous Coach Says Nick Saban is Overrated and Only Wins Because He Cheats

After six national championships, it’s hard to deny Nick Saban’s prowess in the college football ranks.

Well, at least one coach begs to differ. Speaking to Chip Patterson of CBSSports.com on the condition of anonymity, one of Saban’s peers feels the coach is an overrated cheater.

“If you had the No. 1 recruiting class in the country every year [you’d win like Nick Saban]. “He shows up at every single game with a better roster than the teams he’s playing.”

“If you count cheating and getting the best players in the country as part of running a program, he’s the best in the country,” the coach added. “It’s like saying an NFL coach is the best coach in the league if he gets 25 first-round picks every year.”

The notion that Saban uses “special tactics” in his recruiting is nothing new. The Crimson Tide finished with No. 1 recruiting classes every season from 2011 to 2017. While the 2018 class is being deemed a “disappointment”, its No. 5 national ranking is nothing to sneeze at.

The conversation came on the heels of a poll of the nation’s most overrated and underrated college football coaches. Florida State’s Willie Taggart and Penn State’s James Franklin tied for the most overrated at 20% while Saban only received one vote for overrated.
