Congratulations to Coach Nick Saban. I forgot that he never enjoyed an undefeated season at LSU before, and never had done so much as go 11-0 to start a season. Very well done, coach! You join a line of proud coaches who have started (or ended!) a season at least 11-0, or undefeated (remember 9 or 10 games seasons were the norm before the 60s):
Wallace Wade (the great, but ultimately overshadowed, Wade, who won 3 NCs at Bama)
Frank Thomas (2 NCs)
Bear Bryant (6NCs)
Stallings (1 NC)
Note that Bill "The Brick" Curry also started 10-0 one year, but we don't count that. If you lived throught he Curry era, you understand why.
Once again, a first for Coach Saban, congratulations!
