Steve Allen, Jack Parr, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien. Which host would screw up The Tonight Show?
Urban Meyer, Les Miles, Nick Saban, Gene Chizik. Which coach will screw up the SEC domination?
Saban takes his Alabama Crimson Tide into the national title game against Notre Dame, with the Southeastern Conference having won six straight national titles. Saban has two of those, 2009 and 2011, but the SEC's divine right of championships will come to an end some time.
Will it be in the Big Bowl on Monday night? Notre Dame has the defense to keep Alabama at bay. Can the Fighting Irish find enough offense to get to the 14 or 17 points it might need to win?
It's Saban's job to keep Notre Dame down and extend the SEC's streak to seven. If Alabama loses, Saban will remain a Bama icon. But he'll also be known as the coach who allowed the SEC streak to end.
