    I always wonder who'd win in a race, Elijah Holyfield or Jordan Davis.

    Looks like Alabama thinks they are in a pissing contest and then peed all over themselves. I guess they do not have business degrees? By the way SEC coaches putting that many Alabama players on the SEC preseason team is shooting yourselves in the foot. Perception is everything and you are hurting your own recruiting. That like telling a recruit that Alabama is the place to not with me.

    I'm fairly confident Saban's going nowhere, but that's based on his age and not what he says. In fact, I trust what he says about as far as I can throw him. Originally from south Florida, I continued to follow the Miami Dolphins a bit... and to this day, those fans despise him because at precisely the time he was saying he was going nowhere as their head coach, there was a moving truck in his driveway and he was gone a few days later. Rest assured, Nick's gonna do what's best for Nick, and what comes out of his mouth serves that purpose first and foremost. Go Dawgs!

    Wowie. I wish I could lose a game my whole fan base thought would be a no-brainer, scold that fan base for demanding my team win games, blame the team for the loss and not being motivated enough, and come home with a $1million RAISE. Sign me up!!

    I wonder what the Vegas odds are for Kirby and Saban finishing their new contracts. My money says Saban will hang it up soon, but Bama had to increase his salary or look almost as weak as they did in January 😉

    Go Dawgs!!!

    Surprised Headline doesn’t read:

    Saban Announces Retirement!!!

    in 10 years

  • Bdw3184Bdw3184 Posts: 12,727 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I tell ya….the Dawgs are living in the heads of the Bama admin, coaches and players rent-free…..just another example!

    Gotta love it!

    Go Dawgs!

    Bet he whined that “Kirby wouldn’t have got that contract if Metchie and Williams had not been hurt”…….

    Bowden coached until age 79, Paterno to age 85, so it's certainly possible that Saban is an active head coach in 2030. Some folks thrive under pressure

  • E_RocE_Roc Posts: 1,211 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I wouldn't exactly call what Bowden's and Paterno's teams were doing at those times "thriving."

    Image is one dimensional, character is multi-faceted. Go Kirby, Go Dawgz. Beat bama.😎

    I'd say about 2 years in a row of not winning a NC, 3 years for definite sure, and the fans start murmuring(and they always do) with great expectations and having done so multiple times in the past, they figure it's their right, and who knows, Saban just might just say, "OK, I'm out of here." I don't believe old Bobby and Old Joe Pa were as effective as ther younger selfs. I don't see Nick at 74-75 being as good as Nick at 65. JMHO But who knows?
