In just six years as the head coach at Alabama, coach Nick Saban has already built the Tide back into the biggest empire in college football.

The Tide is 60-7 in the last five seasons and is a month away from playing for their third BCS title in the last four years.

With a win over Notre Dame, Alabama would be the first team with three titles in four years since Nebraska in the mid-'90s.

After winning the national crown last season, the Tide lost a ton of talent to the NFL including four first-round draft picks. This year, the Tide was expected to experience somewhat of a rebuilding year.

Depending on which players might leave early after this season, Alabama should be expected to compete for yet another BCS title in 2013. No one has ever won three consecutive undisputed national titles at this level.

It is because of this amazing run that Saban has become quite the intimidating factor. Any coach who wants to reach college football's pinnacle knows he mus first go through Saban and the Tide.

Saban is the benchmark for success in college football. He recruits better. He coaches better. He is better.

Here is a look at the coaches who are likely to see Saban as their biggest threat.
