08:21 AM ET 01.03 | Two college football powerhouse programs square off on Jan. 7 with some significant bragging rights on the line for Alabama. Only two other programs have won three championships in four years in the wire service era (since 1936). ... Dynasty is always a loaded word, sparking debate and suggesting long-term excellence. A lot of you will immediately think of Oklahoma's 47-game winning streak in the 1950s. It took Bud Wilkinson 17 years to win his three titles. If he triumphs next week, Saban would have won four in 11 SEC seasons at two schools. A fourth title would tie him with Notre Dame's Frank Leahy and put Saban two away from tying Bear Bryant. You see where this could be headed. Immortality.
