Rarely are "Forbes Magazine" and "Alabama" mentioned in the same breath, but the respected business and finance magazine has just named Nick Saban "the most powerful coach in sports."
Saban has an eight-year contract worth a guaranteed $32 million. To put this in perspective, compare your paycheck to Saban's through the Birmingham News' handy salary calculator.
But how, we ask, can a state whose residents rank among the lowest per capita income afford to pay Saban top dollar?
We hope to find an answer from a trip into this dangerous American back-country by members of the BBC show "Top Gear."
