Remove the first season (which is pot luck for any coach) and Sabans record is far superior. He was undefeated in his second and third regular seasons which is a monumental boon to any fan base. He almost beat us in 08 and beat us in 09 when we looked unstoppable. He NEVER had a 2-6 stretch against P5 opponents. He never had a defense rated the worst since before WWII. Again, please do a diagnostic on your logic circuits.
