The key to Saban’s success isn’t buy in to a system, it’s buy in to the

Program. It’s enforced by not just him but he has a rotating cast of leaders on his team every year that just don’t put up with nonsense. You can be sure that every day in the offseason, guys are lifting weights, keeping to their nutrition programs, studying the playbook, etc ... it’s a culture of “This is the way we do things here.” Then when the season comes, guys aren’t at the bar at 2am the night before practice, etc. There is no other option.

All those little things spread across an entire team make a real difference. Alabama recruits well, but so do lots of other teams. Getting the most out of every guy is how they’re so dominant.
