A ground-breaking season filled with highlight moments was coronated Saturday in a national championship parade for Alabama. Pictures, posters, media personnel and fans came to the Walk of Champions in 30-degree weather to celebrate the latest achievement of head coach Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide. With over 20 recruits in attendance, Southeastern Conference commissioner Greg Sankey presented Alabama with the College Football Playoff Trophy and the Coaches’ Trophy.
Running back Derrick Henry and Alabama’s defense re-wrote history all year, yet the latest accomplishment that was said by Crimson Tide Sports Network commentator Eli Gold is something to behold. Alabama has compiled a 50-6 record in its last four seasons under Saban, dating back to 2012.
As Eli Gold points out, Alabama has gone 50-6 over the last four years, which ties an NCAA record.

Three SEC championships, two national titles and two College Football Playoff appearance all have been reached during this time. The 50 wins tie an NCAA record, which led to Saban calling this year’s championship “the most special” championship.
Very few programs can sustain dominance for a constant period of time.
Saban has Alabama on a roll right now.
