Nick Saban rated as toughest coach to face by peers

Every week ESPN college football reporter Brett McMurphy puts out a coaches poll, but ranks coaches based on different criteria each week. This week, he polled coaches around the country on who was the most prepared come game day.

It should come as no surprise that Alabama’s Nick Saban was at the top.

Urban Meyer, Bill Snyder, Ken Niumatalolo and Frank Beamer rounded out the top five.

Saban and Meyer are no surprises, and Bill Snyder and Frank Beamer are legends in the game.

Although it may be surprsing to see Navy’s Ken Niumatalolo in the top five. Nonetheless, it’s great to see coaches and schools outside the traditional powerhouses be recognized.
