Editor's note: Each week the TideNation staff will address an issue surrounding the Alabama football program. Today's question: Does Nick Saban's reputation as a ruthless coach have any effect on recruits?
Alex Scarborough's take
Nick Saban didn't make a deal with the devil to become the most accomplished head coach in all of college football. He didn't surrender his soul for four national championships and countless millions of dollars. He didn't sell himself, because he's not the one doing the negotiating. Instead, he's the devilish man holding all the cards, dangling hopes and dreams in front of athletes across the country.
