Talking dynasties in college football

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama coach Nick Saban spends about as much time pondering his legacy as he does kicking back and watching reality TV or perusing Internet message boards.

The bigger picture in Saban's world is the next practice, the next recruiting call, the next game.

He's the quintessential live-in-the-moment guy when it comes to his craft.

"We don't too often look at the bigger picture around here," Alabama running back Eddie Lacy said with an amused chuckle.

That may be, but with Alabama bearing down on what it hopes will be its third national championship in the last four years, Saban's legacy will be the topic du jour in college football if the Crimson Tide take care of business against Notre Dame on Jan. 7 in the Discover BCS National Championship.
