#1 Nick Saban
*****************

Record: 198-60-1
Conference Championships: 7
*National Championships: 5
Bowl Record: 10-8
*LSU (1), Alabama (4)

Analysis: Nick Saban has had the most consistent reign of power not only in the most competitive conference, but also in the most competitive era in college football history. Knute Rockne and Bear Bryant achieved unimaginable feats, but those coaches were not restricted with scholarship limitations and parity. In addition, though Rockne and Bryant won their respective conferences, they never endured the stress of a conference championship game after the regular season.
