Alabama’s Nick Saban is the most established and accomplished head coach in college football. Most would agree that he’s a significantly better coach than most of his counterparts.
But Dabo Swinney certainly doesn’t fall into that category. In fact, according to ESPN college football analyst David Pollack, Swinney is closing the gap on Saban.
Here’s what Pollack said:
David Pollack on ESPN: The Nick Saban edge over all these coaches..Dabo is not only closing the gap. He ain't scared of Nick. He ain't scared of nobody anymore. He's done an amazing job. He's no longer one of those guys you say is really good. No he is one of the best."

Swinney beat Saban head-to-head last year, and came awfully close the season before that.
Swinney doesn’t have a track record like Saban, but it feels like he could accomplish just as much if he keeps up this pace. Alabama vs. Clemson figures to be a phenomenal matchup – on the field, and on the sidelines.
