Wade definitely put Bama football on the map with the Rose Bowl victory. I get your point about Bear being the best known for sure. I grew up during the Bear years (was born in 64) so I absolutely understand his legendary status. Saban is the closest thing I have seen to the Bear. They share the same values of hard work, play with discipline and hold them to a high standard of excellence.
I am just glad we have been fortunate to have both of them coach at Bama. Going to enjoy Saban at Bama as long as he wants to do it.
