Mariners Players And Their College Football Comparisons
Felix Hernandez – Alabama Crimson Tide
Big. Overpowering. Scary.
For the past 11 years since Felix has graced a Major League mound, no one has wanted to face him. He may not be the #1 pitcher in the game every year, no one can deny his dominance.
154 career wins with a 3.16 ERA and over 2000 innings and strikeouts. Those are career numbers for a lot of pitchers, but he is not even close to being done. No doubt Felix will continue on to reach 200 wins and 3000 K’s and IP and cement himself as one of the all-time greats.
2017 will have to be a bounce back year for the King after a subpar 2016, but no doubt he will.

The Alabama Crimson Tide have been the kings of College Football since Nick Saban took over. Bama has won four National Titles since 2009 and consequently has constantly produced loads of NFL talent.
In 2017, they may have six players go in the 1st round of the draft! Alabama has been a constant talent pool for the NFL and they only seem to get better every year.
Anyone who watched the National Semi-Finals saw that the Tide easily handled a UW team that was noted as an offensive juggernaut.
But every once in a while, a king gets knocked off his thrown. The Clemson Tigers, with a last second TD, captured the crown. But that game was a good ole’ fashioned slugfest.
Everyone knows that Saban will go out and recruit only the best athletes so that he can once again be #1 in 2017. Like Felix, there does not seem to be an end in sight for their dynasty run.
