Is Tuscaloosa the new Yalta?

Saturday's 24-3 blowout by Alabama against Penn State included a rare meeting between coaches Nick Saban, Joe Paterno, and former FSU coach Bobby Bowden. The Birmingham News' Kevin Scarbinsky had an interesting description of this gathering of coaching legends:

"It was as close as college football has come to Roosevelt, Churchill Stalin at Yalta. and
You decide which championship coach resembles which long-gone world leader. I don't plan to start World War III."

And probably because the majority of football fans outside of Alabama would put Saban in the Stalin, right? (Well, Black Heart Gold Pants would probably continue it's "JoePa is a commie" meme. But that's them.)
