    Quote about Saban by Belichick

    My wife bought me nick Saban's book for Christmas, and if you haven't read it, the foreward is written by Bill Belichick and he had some quite sensational things to say about Nick Saban. What follows are some excerpts I put together from it:
    To begin with, he [Saban] is exceptionally bright. Nick and I worked together for four years and have been freinds and colleagues for two decades, and there is no doubt that I have learned more from him than he has learned from me. !!:eek:!! He is an extremely intelligent person-and that extends well beyond football...

    Nick Saban is one of the most complete coaches I have ever met. Most coaches have strengths in different areas, but Nick is strong in virtually every aspect of the game: recruiting, motivation, knowledge of schemes and techniques, communication, and managin personnel. He succees by at all times exhibiting traitscrucial to any leader- among them intelligence, strength, tenacitymenergy, intensity, and focus. He succeeds because, above all, he is commited to winning. We can all learn some important lessons about leadership from Nick...

    Not only does Nick develop outstanding young men on the football field, but he has an impressive ability to develop young coaches as well... Our Patriots staff alone-a staff talented and fortunate enough to have made its team world champion last year, has three coaches groomed by Nick... And Nick was absolutley instrumental in developing the criteria we use for scouting and drafting defensive players...-Bill Belichick

    What more can you say....I think this is a bit about helping to sell a few extra books nonetheless - he confirms many of the things that I have been thinking about Saban.

    Thanks for the post, I enjoyed it!

    Wow, thanks for posting that. I love Saban and he has lived up to everything said by Belichick thus far. I think it's quite obvious that Saban is a proven winner, seeing what he did this year, at Michigan State and obviously LSU.

    I can't wait to see what our team does next year.

    B.B. sure has a high opinion of Saban. I'm sure Saban is proud to be complimented like this by such a successful NFL coach.

    I was thinking about buying the book. How is it.
    "But I'm a superstitious man. And if some unlucky accident should befall him...if he should get shot in the head by a police officer, or if he should hang himself in his jail cell, or if he's struck by a bolt of lightning, then I'm going to blame some of the people in this room. And that I do not forgive. - Don Corleone

    The best line in history!

    Just looking at the sad excuse for available coaches for teams looking this offseason makes Saban such a huge acquisition. If we had waited another year we'd be fighting over Gregg Williams or Mike Tice :eek:

    Is it 3am yet?

    Not even Gregg Williams. He signed an extension to stay in Washington. We would be fighting for the likes of Tice, Mariucci, and Ron Rivera.
