One stat tells you everything you need to know about Nick Saban’s insane domination in college football.

According to @RTRnews, the legendary Alabama football coach has had more linebackers taken in the NFL draft than he has losses since 2009. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

In that timespan, the Tide have lost 15 games and have had 16 linebackers drafted.

It’s truly unreal how great of a coach Nick Saban has been at the college level. We’re probably not going to see anything like it again for a very long time.

He sends more players from a single position group to the NFL than he has losses in over a decade. If that’s not insane, then I don’t know what is.

Part of the college game is recruiting, and nobody does it better than Saban. As we saw in a recently leaked video, his pitch is to just list off all his accomplishments, and they’re second to none.

Even though I’m not a pro-SEC guy, I respect the hell out of Nick Saban. All he does is win. No matter who you support, you have to recognize his greatness, and this tweet is another blunt reminder of his accomplishments in Tuscaloosa.
