Dabo seems really good at:
* Player development (players generally get better from year 1 to year 4/5)
* Good roster management. Senior class leaves, next group is just as good. Look how many young guys they had this year perform at a high level.
* Mastering the mental - beating Bama helps add to their swagger and reinforces their coaching and belief.
* Lastly, based on Saban's stupid comment at halftime of the championship game (copycatting?), they appear to be smart enough to be able to make some tweaks and have their players execute an "off-script" game plan.
* I'm jealous...
