    Eh, I'd say it's more representative of our entire society heading down the shitter because these kids expect everything handed to them and get coddled beyond reason with absolutely no guidance or sense of responsibility coming from above. I can see Mack Brown as the kind of guy who'd hand out trophies for losing.

    So ESPN is reporting that some UT BoR met with Saban's agent last year after the BCS Champ game. Apparently, Texas has given thought of having Saban coach their team.

    Maybe this will remind people that the whole, "we can't have a playoff system in college football" argument is blatantly hypocritical bullshit.

    Meh. I prefer their "side trips" to the rote BCS visits. There's a lot more to college football than even FBS schools, and in many ways its better at smaller schools. IMO.

    Of course they would, as they should. Saban will use it for a raise (pretty sure they're met before, too). He's the last person who'll agree to having LHN film practices...

    WI hired a guy as dumb as the last guy. How many deep outs into single coverage do you give up before you double the fucking receiver?

    Clemson or FSU will go undefeated, play in the national championship.

    Srsly- the ppl at UT are starved for a REAL winner and they have the biggest war chest in college sports. Incredible challenge.

    Alabama won't be a challenge for him any more.

    Where else does he go- the pros?

    Didn't work too well the first time.

    He's 62 in a month. Here's where he goes: Some place where he doesn't have to work 80-hour work weeks (IE: Retirement.).

    Seriously Steve B., you're a real dolt.

    Great coaches like him don't retire at 62. They look for the next opportunity because they like the challenge.

    I never said he would retire at 62. I just said he's getting old. There comes a point where the grind just isn't fun/worth it.

    Saban doesn't have fun. He doesn't do this because he enjoys it, he does it because he thrives on it. The grind is what keeps him going. He's one of those people that will work until the day he dies and that day will come early if he stops.

    Saban is not going to Texas. I think his age is a factor, but, even if it's not, there is nothing about going to Texas that is an upgrade for him.

    I agree with everything except the last part. Money will be an upgrade and that's it.
