When the matchup between Alabama and Notre Dame takes place, there is going to be a lot of pressure on the head coaches. Nick Saban and Brian Kelly are spending the next month preparing for just 60 minutes of football, in a game that will change their lives forever.
They both have so much to gain, but Coach Saban has the most to lose between the two.
Kelly could end up losing this game and still be able to walk back to South Bend with his head held high. As for Saban, losing this game would be a tough pill to swallow and could turn into a domino effect of many things to come.
While losing shouldn't be an option for either one of these coaches, it is an unfortunate reality for one of them.
