    Yes. In a "rat poison" kind of way.
    Everyone else, include Coach Saban is down below looking up at him. Dabo is now the greatest coach of all time.

    As I said in another topic, he's now a worthy rival.

    But, "The Man"? Please... he got beat twice by Saban, it isn't like that's a title that goes back and forth based on whoever gets a W, otherwise the coach of Syracuse was "The Man" for a while in 2017..

    Wake me up when Dabo wins 5 National Championships in a span of 9 years. He was definitely "the man" for a day. But he has a ways to go to catch up and overtake Saban as "the man", the GOAT!

    Hes in select company. But not the man.

    He will be the man when Saban leaves and he takes Bama to 4 more titles.

    When mama calls, Dabo will come.

    I think you are correct.

    I don't want Dabo to win another championship unless it is when he replaces Saban. If that happens, I think Dabo could actually surpass Saban and Bear Bryant, only because he is fairly young right now and has plenty of time.

    I don't know what Coach Saban's record is for his first 10 years as a HC. I suspect Dabo's record is better but he's got a long way to go before I will consider him The Man. Time will tell, but I must admit, he's off to a great start.

    No, but he is at the top of the sport, and that is all that really matters. Saban is better, and I expect that Alabama will win when the two square off again, but I don't have Clemson in the CFP in 2019 so you may have to wait a few years.

    He beat Saban twice to win a championship and lost to Saban twice when trying to win a championship. Top tier coach. But Saban is the GOAT, and this will make him work even harder next year.
