John Wooden won 7 national titles in a row at UCLA from 1967 to 1973 , I know , your thinking that's basketball , not football , what would it take to win that many National Championships in a row in football ?, besides a lot of luck, the school must have the resources to recruit nation wide , Check that one, Alabama could buy a plane for every coach on staff to recruit with, they definitely have the cash. The school must also be ready for prime time ,as in television exposure, to garner the attention of the recruits , check, Alabama gets almost as much air time as Notre Dame enough said. The facilities have to be top notch , in order to close the deal with the recruits , they want to see the weight room, dinning hall,dorm rooms, lockers and the stadium , check,check,check,check and check. Dr. Witt and Mal Moore along with countless boosters and Alumni have created the best over all facilities in the country , nothing can compare. Now you must have a" recruiting machine" a tireless coach who lives eats and sleeps recruiting , then be able to teach and coach , well we have it all in Saban and if anyone could win 7 in a row it's Nick Saban at Alabama.
