    It is going to be plain weird going to Tuscaloosa and it not being about Kirby vs. Saban!

    This is shocking, not that Saban is retiring, but that he decided to do it now. So, whose is next to coach Bama that list will be hefty list. Unless Alabama promotes from within [doubtful?] someone's university will be worrying that it won't be theirs. Dabo maybe? What about the 2024 class yikes? 😎

    I hope he lives longer than the Bear did after he retired. Every SEC football fan I knew back then was saddened by the news of his death. I even know Auburn fans that cried on that day.

    Greatest coach of all time. UGA possibly has the one person that could take that crown in 20 years. I'll take Kirby at 48.

    The cell phones are lit tonight! This is national sports news. The big question now is who is next? Lanning with that $20 mil buyout...hummmm? I am not speculating on this one. One thing...Saban is going out with that last win over UGA! Kirby lives with that now. Also, can one even imagine Tuscaloosa without Saban?

    After Saban Alabama has no where to go but down. I pitty the bloke that takes the job.

    Go Dawgs!

    Welp.....the Dawgs are about to eat..... everybody is In trouble

    I think they should hire "Jimbo Fisher Inc."....featuring Bobby Petrino..."Gun For Hire". Lol

  • BigDawg61BigDawg61 Posts: 2,398 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Saban saw what was comin' next year....and, decided to get out of Kirby's way. He had a helluva run. Now, watch Kirby top it off, over the next 20+ years. Lol

    Maybe he gave Arther Blank & the Falcons his "silent commitment" to take over in Atlanta before they fired Smith. Lol

    I'd really like to see us make a push for Caleb Downs. Wasn't Saban the position coach for bama's safeties as well? i know he worked with the secondary. Downs would nicely fill a safety position.
