‘Bama coach should be in NFL

A wise man once told me that if you want to know what the future is going to be, simply study the past.

In the case of college football and it’s national championship series, that old saying holds true.

Alabama has dominated the history of the big game. In fact, ‘Bama has won six national crowns in the last 15 years.

The easy victory that Alabama scored over Ohio State this week clearly illustrated that domination.

An observer got the idea that the Crimson Tide could have named the score if it wanted to.

Ohio State, while a fine team itself, was outmatched in nearly every aspect of the game.

Highly touted quarterback Justin Fields of OSU was outplayed by Mac Jones of Alabama, who passed through the Buckeyes like a water going through a duck, well, you get the idea.

I don’t know about you, Mac Jones certainly doesn’t conjure up visions of a quarterback you’re going to hear a whole lot about on Sundays.

Coach Nick Saban has built a program that never rebuilds … it just reloads season after mind-numbing season. And its second and third team people would probably start elsewhere.

Is Saban that good of a coach? He didn’t tear up things in his stint at Michigan State back in the day.

It just might be that he has access to all the best talent available in the land. And the best assistant coaches.

If truth be told, the Crimson Tide would rank among the best teams in the National Football League in most seasons.

But if Saban is that good of a skipper, should he not be in the NFL?

There’s a team in Detroit that is currently seeking a coach.

But going to Motown would be a step down for him — probably in salary alone.
