Plenty of people were questioning Kirby Smart after his team lost to Vanderbilt on Saturday.
But FOX Sports radio and TV host Colin Cowherd used the Georgia loss to praise Nick Saban and the job he does. Cowherd lumped Saban in with several other coaching greats, such as Bill Belichick and Pete Carroll.
Bellichick, Saban, Urban and Pete Carroll make coordinators look really brilliant. You have been warned #downgoesgeorgia

The SEC East is filled with former Saban disciples. Will Muschamp is at South Carolina, Smart is at Georgia and Jim McElwain is at Florida. One of Urban Meyer’s pupils, Dan Mullen, is 2-4 this season for Mississippi State. Another Meyer disciple, Charlie Strong, is struggling at Texas.
Alabama, meanwhile, is undefeated and up on Tennessee at halftime.
