Dayum if 'Bama doesn't do everything well... Statistically, Nick Saban is the model for pass coverage defense. He goes after the DBs he wants, coaches them, Kirby Smart coaches up the LBs and is the DC (in title, at least). Oh, Nick Saban really, really, really wanted Mike Harris. I'm sure we can all believe that now.

The folks over at Tomahawk Nation have a fantastic post today looking at passing defense across the FBS. If you ever wanted proof that the heart of Saban's defensive scheme is in the secondary, well here you go.
