2013 Alabama football's 10 things to know: Tide still on a different levelBy Bill Connelly on Jun 7 2013, 9:14a | @SBN_BillC
It takes luck to win a national title. And lord knows it takes quite a bit of luck to win three in four years. But in terms of recruiting, development, and strategy, Nick Saban and Alabama are playing a different game than everybody else in college football. With just a bit more luck, the Tide might accomplish what has never been done before.

Over the last eight seasons, 961 teams have played FBS football. If you ranked all of them according to their F/+ rankings, Alabama's last four teams have ranked sixth, 13th, first, and second, respectively. Only seven teams have finished with an F/+ rating better than plus-40.0 percent. Alabama has three of them. Only two have finished with an F/+ rating better than plus-50.0 percent: Alabama in each of the last two years.
