Texas vs. Alabama Matchup - Best Coach

KLTV is teaming with Raycom sister station WSFA in Montgomery, Alabama, and debating the biggest 11 points entering the BCS Championship game on January 7th...and each day, we will present a new debate point.

KLTV/Texas is represented by Sports Director Ryan Peterson, and Jeff Shearer, Sports Director at WSFA will represent the Crimson Tide...

Topic #1: Who has the best coach? 

Ryan says...Mack Brown has turned Texas into the premier job of college football.  He's won 83 percent of his games at UT.  Brown is the only coach in the nation to lead his team to at least nine wins in each of the last 14 seasons.  He also wins the big game.  Brown won the BCS National Championship in 2005.  He's won three BCS Bowl games, and five straight bowl games overall.

Jeff says...Come on, are we really having this conversation?  You do know Alabama is coached by THE Nick Saban, right? Haven't you seen "The Blind Side?" Part-time Texas resident Sandra Bullock spoke for many women when her character said of Saban, "I find him extremely handsome."  Enough said. With all of those great high school football players in the Lone Star state, you or I could coach the Longhorns and be in the top 5 every year.  It takes a real workaholic genius to convince all those 5-star recruits to work together in less-populated places like Tuscaloosa and Baton Rouge.
