How did Poodle do it? How did Meyer do it?

starting in 2009 and that's when Meyer had his team running at a high level with the Heisman trophy winner. Florida was #1 and Saban beat them 32-13.
The Tide held the ball for nearly 40 minutes and piled up 490 yards against a defense that was ranked No. 1 in the country, allowing less than 10 points and about 233 yards per game.
Suddenly Meyer had issues. The next year Alabama crushed UF 31-6. They were up 24-0.
From a program perspective, Alabama is better now than USC or Florida was. 3 titles in 4 years hasn't been done since Leahy.
Nit: Nebraska won 3 in 4 years, unless we count '97 as 1/2.
94 and 97 are shared with their new conference
