Olin Buchanan of Rivals.com discusses whether the rivalry of Nick Saban and Les Miles could elevate to the level of the legendary Schembechler/Hayes rivalry of the 1970s. His short answer:
And though Alabama and LSU are rivals, especially since Saban took over in Tuscaloosa four years ago, Auburn remains the Crimson Tide's arch-enemy. Indeed, a rivalry between Saban and Auburn coach Gene Chizik may be developing that could be greater than any in college football today.
Buchanan also answers questions about bowl ratings, which coaches "care" about their players, and whether UGA can right the ship in 2011.
After reading Buchanan's theory, which SEC coach do you think emerges as Saban's chief "rival" in the near future?
