    I can't recall which recruit however one of the recruits was asked about what he thought of Saban. His reply was that he thought coach was cool and reminded him of "Scarface".

    He made 29 players an offer they couldn't refuse.

    Saban definitely has a Michael Corleone-feel to him.

    Dinardo? Fredo all the way!

    No, I think Curley is Fredo and Dinardo is Sonny -- once a good coach but too stubborn to succeed long-term.

    CURLEY: It ain't the way I wanted it! I can handle things; I'm smart -- not like everyone says, like I'm dumb. I'm smart and I want respect!

    SABAN: Curley, you're nothing to me now. You're not a coach, you're not a friend, I don't want to know you or what you do -- I don't want to see you on campus -- I don't want you near Tiger Stadium -- when you see Skip Bertman I want to know a day in advance, so I won't be there -- you understand.

    The whole Saban as Michael Corleone thing was discussed back in this thread:

    James Brown is the Godfather of Soul

    Nick Saban is the Godfather of Colllege Football
