Saban is a living legend in college football. We've not seem his equivalent in our lifetime. I don't think he has to be a great salesman or have a particular type of personality to recruit well. He just shows interest in a kid, flashes his rings, shows them their NFL success, and gets pretty much whoever he wants. I know they lose a few, but honestly the rest of us are playing second fiddle and taking their leftovers for the most part. Clemson and OSU have success on the trail, too, of course. But Saban has intangibles that no other program does. Bowden was probably the last to even come close. For many of them, it is almost the equivalent to the POTUS personally asking an adult to come serve in Washington. He calls, you go. I'll be very happy when he hangs it up.
