Alabama football: Rules may change, but Nick Saban will always be dominant

Alabama football drives the conversation here at the Rammer Jammer, SEC Country’s daily Alabama athletics recap, but we’ll cover news for every facet of the Crimson Tide. Every morning, we’ll be here for the latest on Alabama football, basketball and every other sport on campus.

Nick Saban remains constant

Over the years, coach Nick Saban and Alabama have found ways to give the program an advantage in college football. Saban loves to take advantage of his resources to make sure he’s as prepared as possible for games. He’s had big coaching staffs and a network of analysts to help him continue his dominance. He’s even used former players such as quarterbacks John Parker Wilson or Blake Sims to mimic opposing players. Whenever Saban finds a new way to gain the upper hand, it seems like the NCAA comes up with a rule to change that. This year’s addition is limiting the coaching staff to 20 headsets on the sideline. The NCAA can change as many rules as it wants, but Saban will always be dominant.
