Kevin Scarbinsky of the Birmingham News says Forbes Magazine's proclamation that Nick Saban is "the most powerful coach in sports" is a bunch of running bull.
"Nick Saban is the most powerful coach in sports ... who's lost four of his last five games.
"Saban is the most powerful coach in sports ... who's one game over .500 at his current job.
"Saban is the most powerful coach in sports ... who hasn't had a winning regular season in three years."
Scarbinsky is just getting warmed up. He says Mike Krzyzewski of Duke would have been a much better choice and that "Coach K has won three national titles and didn't have to share any of them with Pete Carroll."
Will Collier of From The Bleachers writes that "Scarbinsky probably ought to have a bomb-sniffing dog check out his car before he drives home tonight. This one isn't going to go over so well with all the Kool-Aid drinkers in Bamaham--which certainly includes a massive crimson cheering section at the Bamaham News."
