CFB Players Think Nick Saban Is The Best Coach In The Nation

ESPN The Magazine's annual college football confidential players poll is out, and the results are interesting when it comes to Alabama head coach Nick Saban. 

Saban was the top answer to the question "Other than your own, who is the best coach in the country?", besting Ohio State's Urban Meyer 37 percent to 25 percent in that category. He also picked up a nice compliment from an anonymous player from an AAC program. 

"Saban produces first-round picks and Heisman winners year in and year out. He never rebuilds." -- AAC player on why the Bama coach is still the boss

On the flip side, Saban was also the top vote-getter in the field of "Other than your own, who is the last coach you would want to play for?". He beat out Michigan's Jim Harbaugh 11 percent to 10 to earn that distinction.
