Who knows whether the Alabama Crimson Tide will roll into newly-renovated Nippert Stadium next season?  But, if Alabama does, Saban will be facing one of the only coaches that had a winning record against him.  According to one SEC blog, Tuberville is 4-3 against Saban since 2000.  Obviously, that was a different time (‘Bama was rebuilding), with a different team (Tuberville coached Auburn), and a different conference (SEC), altogether.  Even so, I like what one Alabama author had to say about Tuberville:

“Story of his career. If you have one game to play and no one is giving your team a chance, there’s no better coach to have on your sideline than Tuberville.”
