Head coach Nick Saban has won four national titles in his career, including three at Alabama, which is why the best-case scenario for every Crimson Tide football team is an undefeated national championship season.

Saban is the best head coach in America, and he also has two of the best coordinators working under him, which gives Alabama the best coaching staff in the country. Offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin has been the butt of many jokes over the years, but it took him just one year to break just about every offensive record in the book in Tuscaloosa. Defensively, Kirby Smart has churned out top-10 defenses on an annual basis since he got the job.

The second reason the Tide can win the College Football Playoff National Championship in 2015 is talent. The Alabama football roster is stocked with players that were considered among the nation’s best as high school recruits. In fact, Saban and his coaching staff have landed five straight recruiting classes ranked No. 1 in the nation according to 247Sports.

With so many former five-star and future NFL standout players on the roster (seven players are ranked among the top eight at their position among those eligible for the 2016 NFL Draft by, Alabama will never be at a talent disadvantage. Only a few teams, such as Ohio State, even come close.

Saban built the Crimson Tide back into an annual contender for college football’s biggest prize, and even though there are questions on offense – and specifically at the quarterback position – Alabama could win it all once again.
