I think he would have done a great job at Alabama. The only question I could have is how he would handle the pressure of the job. There is no way that will ever be answered.
Better than Saban will do? JK. It's a hypothetical that can never be answered unless Sabin doesn't do well (which I don't think will happen).
Given the choice, of course I like who we ended up with. I don't think there is any doubt that we could have recruited, year in and year out, the type of athletes needed to run his system with success.
My biggest question when his name surfaced was who he would have brought in for the defensive side of the ball.
