He is seen as a win-at-all-costs leader who will sacrifice anyone and anything to get the next win.
There would be one more round for a team to take a shot at knocking off Alabama, which has dominated college football with five of the last nine national championships under Nick Saban. He is able to recruit the best athletes and football players to come to Alabama.

Despite being the last team in the College Football Playoff and trailing 13-0 at halftime, Alabama rallied to defeat Georgia in Monday's College Football Playoff National Championship by a 26-23 margin in overtime. I'm proud of what we did this year - a big turnaround from year one to year two. Tagovailoa went 14-of-24 for 166 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the second half against Georgia.
Saban went into the locker room and made a big move. "Because Tua felt that he should've been the starting quarterback and had outperformed (Jalen Hurts) in practice, and Coach never gave him an opportunity". So he'll sit for a year and have three years to play.
Last night's primetime game is up 9% in the early ratings over the Clemson-Alabama battle of previous year.
"Sometimes you win the game but you don't necessarily beat the other team", Alabama coach Nick Saban said Tuesday morning. Whose only real offense in the second half was one lovely long throw from Jake Fromm to Mecole Hardman, the one that made it 20-7 at the time. "I'm very proud of this team and this university".

He isn't doing it alone, of course, with the gritty, coffee-addicted Detective Pikachu at his side. The New 2DS XL Pikachu Edition has been confirmed for a January 26, 2018 release.
Kiffin said the coaching staff actually preferred Tagovailoa. "I think the game was pretty equal and was a good defensive battle until the game opened up in the second half".
"I am here buying shirts, hats, pennants and an Alabama sign".
This is where Saban differs from most of the better coaches in the sport. So what would you do about it, most people would want it settled on the field in a victor take all championship match. "You've got to make it happen, and they've got to believe that".
Sometimes change is needed, and the genius comes in making the right call in those two situations.
What is clear is Tagovailoa jump started the Alabama offense, and was the key factor in allowing the Crimson Tide to come back to win the title. His record as the Alabama starter was 25-2. There were so many moments, on third down and fourth down, when he made the game look as easy for Alabama as Deshaun Watson had made it look against Alabama last January.
Is it possible that Hurts could have brought Alabama back in the second half? "With Him, all things are possible", he said.
With Clemson and Georgia nipping at his heels every year, the trio seem to have ushered in a golden age of college football in the South.
