Nick Saban continues remarkable winning consistency with this Alabama team

Gary Cosby Jr. - USA Today Sports

Nick Saban is not considered the greatest coach of all time for nothing.

He has been the model of consistency in college football for the University of Alabama since 2008.

Coach Saban pushed the Crimson Tide to a 66-10 victory over Chattanooga at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Alabama’s win on Saturday made it 10 victories on the season — marking 16 years of 10-win campaigns for the Tide under Saban. He only has one season where Alabama did not win 10 games, his first year in 2007. People doubted this Tide team after a week two loss to Texas; however, Alabama has surged since then. The Tide captured an SEC Western Division title and will play Georgia in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game. Jalen Milroe is playing confidently at quarterback, Tommy Rees is in a groove calling plays, the offensive line has come alive, and the Tide’s defense is arguably the best second-half unit in the nation.

Alabama is 10-1 with a team most overlooked. The Tide faces Auburn next week in the Iron Bowl at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
