There are many reasons to leave Alabama and come to Texas. Here are my lucky 7 reasons Saban WILL come to Texas!

1.Other than trophies, the state of Alabama's claims to fame are the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company and the KKK. 
2.Why would you live in Tuscaloosa when you could live in Austin. I dare you to find a decent Mexican Food Restaurant in Tuscaloosa. 

3.If it came to a bidding war, no one could outbid Texas
4.Saban seems like he's getting bored with Bama, What else does he have to prove there?
5.Saban seems like he's ready for a new challenge. And getting our Defense to tackle is right up his alley.
6.Saban appears to be annoyed with stupidity, and no offense to the good people of Alabama, but in the life is like a box of chocolates state it is abundant.
7.And this might be the most important. Saban is currently the only coach in NCAA history to win National Titles at 2 schools. However he is in danger of sharing that with both Urban Meyer of Ohio State and Steve Spurrier of South Carolina. Both of them previously won titles at Florida and coach for top 10 teams. If Saban came to Texas and won a title, he would be in the clear and likely hold that record for years to come.

And what exactly is Texas known for besides cowboy hats, Wrangler jeans, rodeos, prairies, dust bowls, cows and bigotry towards illegal immigrants? Houston and Austin aren't states, FYI.

Alabama's home to three of the USNWR's top universities; the most beautiful beaches; proclaimed as the second most scenically and culturally diverse state to film in (second only to California); a city containing the second highest amount of PhDs per capita in America; space exploration; the birthplace of mardi gras in America; the HQs of numerous banks; home to the most prestigious sports-medicine doctors; medical research; top golf courses; many cities named the best and/or most livable in the US; etc. etc. etc.

@ASanePerson--actually, he left Miami because Terry hated the big city "culture" and the NFL "culture." Well-publicized. Baton Rouge and Tuscaloosa--mid-size cities--are what Terry likes.
@all Texas fans: He said he wasn't leaving one place because it's what ALL coaches do; you might want to do a little research. BUT--this coach listens to his wife. You cowpokes might want to check YOUR bigotry at the door ("no offense, but you're all stupid"-nice), and actually study the dynamic behind professionals recruiting: my cousin in San Antonio IS a professionals recruiter, and he says that he spends 80% of his efforts on the wife.
And Saban's HATES big cities. And probably transvestites walking down the streets.

"Every year it's something. Last year it was the Cleveland Browns," Saban said. "The year before that it was somebody else, the NFL. Terry and I are very happy here in Tuscaloosa. We're really love the University of Alabama. We really feel like a part of the community here and we have a lot of good friends here."

Then he topped it off to a large round of applause.

"And, quite frankly," Saban said, "I'm just too damn old to start over somewhere else."

Similar to IMG Academy where Bo Scarborough attends without the academics, I say this not to impress you but rather to impress upon you that my OPINION IS A PROFESSIONAL ONE.... Nick Saban is the BEST COACH that has ever lived for more than one reason. It truly is the process and it's about TEAM

CNS understands that HE CAN NOT WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS. The system does.... His coordinators, his position coaches, his strength coaches, his AD, his secretary's, his players, his recruiters, the teachers and advisors to the players, the players parents and the list goes on.... It's about getting everybody on the same page and creating a SYNERGY through CHEMISTRY. Nobody can WIN EVERY YEAR... Coach Saban's system ALMOST GUARANTY'S a player to win at least one championship before the leave. Without the CHEMISTRY the Synergy can't exist and that's what makes Saban SPECIAL... Without Character None of it works...
The problem mis MOST FAN's ARE NOT ATHLETES AND THEY NEVER ATTENDED THE UNIVERSITY but they somehow refer to the team the root for to as WE and they are COLLEGE FOOTBALL EXPERTS. It's these type of people that are embarrassing to the program but they all have them... RTR

Saban is about more than money sorry to tell you. Why in the hell would he leave a school where he is looking at the first Coach Ever to win 4 back to back and move on to number 5 for a team that can offer him nothing more than a crap program and money????

(Since ESPN wants to give Miles's first LSU's National Championship team credit to Saban.) You think he would tell the fan base he was leaving in the third week of play when he is sitting on a possible National Championship team. SEC does rule. And Alabama is a great team. Saban has had good luck in the SEC. However, to say he is moral and is classy is down right wrong based just on the fact he said so.History says different. And do you really believe his wife would not leave Alabama. She was happy in Baton Rouge too. She is a coach's wife and will go where the pay check is sent. Texas = hold on to your dreams.

Sure we had a period of mediocrity in the early 2000's, but that happens to every program. Current Texas fans should know all about mediocrity. We are the only team to have won at least one SEC championship in every decade since the conference was created, in a conference that has dominated the country for the last 7 years. We have a 47-25-5 record against LSU, a 22-14 record to Florida. Not to mention we lead the country in national championships, bowl victories, bowl appearances, and I believe All Americans as well.

Nobody can argue that Nick Saban is not a good (if not great) coach at the college level. But you don't even have to compare Mack Brown to Nick Saban's 4 National Championship victories to know he is not a good coach when you can make a comparison to another coach in the Big 12 Conference.

Mack Brown, currently on his 16th year, boasts a record of 152-45 overall and 92-31 conference wins/losses with 2 Conference titles, 2 NC appearances, and 1 National Championship.

Bob Stoops, currently on his 15th year, boasts a record of 152-37 overall and 93-12 conference wins/losses with 8 Conference titles, 2 NC appearances, and 1 National Championship.

So what really stands out between Mack Brown and Bob Stoops? Since they were both coaches during the Red River Rivalry, Oklahoma has beaten Texas 9 times to Texas beating Oklahoma 5 times and if you follow college football, you don't need to be reminded how badly OU beat Texas the last couple years. Also keep in mind that Bob Stoops led OU to 8 Conference titles in less years than it took Mack Brown to lead Texas to 2 Conference titles. You can't compete for a National Championship, even if you supposedly get the best recruits and have the best facilities and program that money can buy, if you can't win your own Conference.

You can argue about Nick Saban's morals and what not but can you really blame someone for going where the money is? What if they end up putting sanctions on Alabama and taking away their previous championships? Why would he stay other than for the money and if someone else offered considerably more money, why wouldn't he go? I don't think he will go to Texas because it is the Big 12 and he would not want to have to deal with the Longhorn Network. I think he is hoping Lane Kiffen goes down in flames so he can go to USC and make the big money there and retire in sunny southern California.

And for those of you "true fans" that are suggesting that Mack Brown has done a lot for Texas football and deserves to go when he wants, let me ask you this. If Nick Saban only won 1 National Championship at Alabama and only 2 Conference titles and lost 9 out of 14 times to Auburn and if Auburn won 8 Conference titles, would you still think Nick Saban is a great coach?

College football should not be about any one person. It is still a team sport. Nobody should be bigger than the program, especially a coach. It is not mackbrown-football. It is Texas football. Players want to play for Texas because it is Texas and they grow up wanting to be a Longhorn, not because of Mack Brown. They want to play because of Vince Young and Colt McCoy and other great players that played at Texas. Where would Texas have been without those great players? How would Mack Brown's legacy have been without them to pad his win column? The BYU and Ole Miss game is evidence of his coaching skills. The Kansas State game, although the Texas players played with more heart, was still close and KSU, without a great team or recruits, did more to lose the game than Mack Brown did to ensure a win.

When a head coach is being paid $5 million plus a year, are the fans wrong to expect that the team should always be in the hunt for the National Championship especially with the facilities and recruits Texas has access to? A true fan wants what's best for their players and what's best for the players is to win games and get drafted into the NFL. Just look how many less players are getting drafted out of Texas which clearly points to the talent being coached down rather than coached up.

Mack Brown may be a decent person and great with the spin but a great coach he is not. He has a future in politics or being a superintendent at a high school or junior college somewhere but he really has no business coaching any college that wants to be a contender for a National Championship. If he really wants to prove us wrong, go take the Head Coach job at Kansas from Charlie Weis and turn Kansas into a Conference champion otherwise, Mack Brown is simply a good a coach as Charlie Weis.

Nobody can argue that Nick Saban is not a good (if not great) coach at the college level. But you don't even have to compare Mack Brown to Nick Saban's 4 National Championship victories to know he is not a good coach when you can make a comparison to another coach in the Big 12 Conference.

Mack Brown, currently on his 16th year, boasts a record of 152-45 overall and 92-31 conference wins/losses with 2 Conference titles, 2 NC appearances, and 1 National Championship.

Bob Stoops, currently on his 15th year, boasts a record of 152-37 overall and 93-12 conference wins/losses with 8 Conference titles, 2 NC appearances, and 1 National Championship.

So what really stands out between Mack Brown and Bob Stoops? Since they were both coaches during the Red River Rivalry, Oklahoma has beaten Texas 9 times to Texas beating Oklahoma 5 times and if you follow college football, you don't need to be reminded how badly OU beat Texas the last couple years. Also keep in mind that Bob Stoops led OU to 8 Conference titles in less years than it took Mack Brown to lead Texas to 2 Conference titles. You can't compete for a National Championship, even if you supposedly get the best recruits and have the best facilities and program that money can buy, if you can't win your own Conference.

You can argue about Nick Saban's morals and what not but can you really blame someone for going where the money is? What if they end up putting sanctions on Alabama and taking away their previous championships? Why would he stay other than for the money and if someone else offered considerably more money, why wouldn't he go? I don't think he will go to Texas because it is the Big 12 and he would not want to have to deal with the Longhorn Network. I think he is hoping Lane Kiffen goes down in flames so he can go to USC and make the big money there and retire in sunny southern California.

And for those of you "true fans" that are suggesting that Mack Brown has done a lot for Texas football and deserves to go when he wants, let me ask you this. If Nick Saban only won 1 National Championship at Alabama and only 2 Conference titles and lost 9 out of 14 times to Auburn and if Auburn won 8 Conference titles, would you still think Nick Saban is a great coach?

First of all this is pretty much a fire Mack Brown site. I'm a huge Texas fan that lives in the state of Alabama. It's a shame to have fans like you, passing out shirts like this during the game is just plain sorry. And for anyone thinking Saban is going to come to Texas, all most can do is just laugh at your stupidity. If you can't support your team or a coach that has done so much for a program and then has a tough time, then your apparently not a true fan. Go Horns and SUPPORT MACK BROWN!!!!!!!

The real reasons Saban may consider the move;
1. The athletic director responsible for bringing Saban to Bama passed away this year, and they had a great working relationship. That is lost.
2. AJ McCarron will be leaving at the end of this year. Saban would have to groom a new starting QB.
3. Depending what happens with the DJ Fluker investigation. If the NCAA puts any sanctions on Bama which would prevent Saban from attaining another championship.
4. He sold his lake house in GA. I know, I know. It was an investment property and he still owns his "real" lake house, but still. He's liquidating assets.
5. No state income taxes in TX. Nice for the average Joe, but a big deal to him.
6. TX is flashing 10 million, or so, reasons to move which would double his salary. I'd move if someone doubled my salary!

Real reasons Saban will NOT make the move;
1. It's a negotiating tactic and he is looking for more money from Bama.
2. He is on course to, and arguably already has, outdone Bear Bryant and regardless will stand as one of the greatest coaches at Bama.
3. His system is already in place at Bama. Why reinvent the wheel?
4. I know he left LSU to go to the NFL, but that was the natural thing to do back then and it was for more money. When he came back to college football, I'm certain he would have gone back to LSU if it was available, but it wasn't. Bama was a good fit because it's back in the SEC that he knows and loves. Now that he's making the bucks and he knows he likes college, leaving is less tempting.
5. If you win the SEC, you are almost guaranteed to play for the National Championship. Not necessarily so in another conference. I realize this may change due to playoff structure, but I think the premise will still remain true.
6. Saban said "I'm do damn old to start over".

Nick, we love you and want you to stay. It's about a legacy now and that's much bigger than a dynasty. Roll Tide!!

Debunking your 'real reasons he might leave'

1. Saban surely misses Mal Moore, but he will be fine with Battle and whoever follows him. Fact is, Nick Saban runs Bama football from the top to the bottom. He did with Moore he will with Battle, and he will until he retires.
2. Saban's system does not require a great QB to be successful, even so, he has a stable of solid QBs to take AJ's place, plus two top prospects on the way in David Cornwell and Ricky Town. While McCarron will be missed, Bama will not miss a beat without him. Unlike Texas, Bama does not rely soley on their QB to make the team go like Texas and Colt.
3. Liquidating assets? Seems like an idiotic thing to say in the same sentence as 'investment property'. He never intended to keep that property. He planned to sell it the minute he invested into it.
4. Somehow, I really don't think state taxes will be a deal breaker/maker either way.
5. Are you so naive as to think Bama will not match any offer? I surely hope not. NewsFlash: Bama Football made $82 million in revenue for the 2011-12 school year, and likely goes over $100 million for the 2012-13 school year.

I've been a fan of Alabama and the SEC since the days of Bear Bryant, and I was a little girl. I empathize with the Texas fans that are not happy about being associated with other fans that would blatantly dishonor their head coach. Do you fans seriously think that displaying this type of behavior and lack of support for not only your head coach, but in essence the players as well, feel this as encouragement to give 100%? Your supporting coaches and players need to see that you're rooting for them, not firmly planting a hatchet in the back of their leader. For those of you that feel that our coach doesn't have any morals and class......you have to have those qualities yourself before you can acknowledge whether someone else possesses them or not. However, that being said, sadly, all teams in the NCAA have more than their fair share of backstabbing fans. The game of football is just that, a game....it isn't life or death dependent upon whether the team we pull for wins or loses. Of course we all want our team to go undefeated every year and have that chance of the ultimate prize and bragging rights of National Champions. The reality of it is, that's not possible nor is it feasible. The reason why is because every team goes through the same cycles of losing key players and needing to have someone just as good step up into the vacancies. Which means new personalities and talents and it takes time for the teams to develop the new chemistry amongst its players that is imperative for a team to be successful. This is inclusive of changes in the coaching staff as well. No fanbase is happy when things are not going well for their team......however, they should also be realistic and understand that not all teams can be on top all of the time....because if that was possible, every team in the NCAA would be tied for 1st place.....never going to happen. So just like each of us, they have bad times intermingled with the good....and us fans need to support them through both times, just like we need our family and friends to be there and have our back for both our ups and our downs. None of the teams need part time fans....they need the fans that stay behind them for the good and the ugly.

One thing no one has said on here is that Nick Saban and Mack Brown are very close friends. Saban has to much class to walk out of his job and into one that Brown currently has. If Texas had fired Brown at the end of last season and the new coach flopped this year, it would be a different story. Saban turned down 10 million from the Cleveland Browns and he wasn't friends with the ex-coach there.

You have the shittiest grammatical & spelling skills known to mankind. Secondly, don't think we can outbid Texas? Try us. The football program rakes in $60 million a year. Maybe not as much as Texas' does, but we don't have the viewing power Texas does either.

How's it feel being lower tier in your own state? How does it feel that Johnny Manziel is more popular and important to college football than anything Texas related? You're not even the best in the state. Why would Saban want to work for Texas that has a fanbase that throws its beloved coach under the bus after a bad start?

Well I could rebut your individual points (Pepitos is an outstanding Mexican restaurant and it is practically on campus) but the larger issue is age, next season Saban will be 63, given the fact that any coaching change takes a year (at least) to begin to pay off your brand new extremely expensive coach would be 64 by the time you might reasonably begin to see dividends which doesn't seem like much of a long term plan. If you want to poach someone's coach Miami's would be a better alternative. Al Golden is young, and Miami does not seem willing to pay a coach top dollar, whereas Alabama will match any offer that Texas makes.

Lilipixie is right on the mark with her comments. I have been a Bama fan my entire life and have seen the good the bad and the ugly.

I think it is a shame that someone would for profit sell shirts that undermine their head coach, players coaching staff and fan base. If Texas fans all felt the same about coach Brown as you do, why would he even try and mold a winning team, trust and confidence that is the key.

Can't blame Texas for wanting Saban. He turned the Alabama program around in one season. I also can't blame Saban for listening to the offer Texas makes to him. Nick Saban is obviously the best coach in college football today, however for how long? I see him coaching for a long time, but as he ages can he keep up this the high pace of college football? I think he is staying in Tuscaloosa, but you never know. It won't be the end of Alabama if he leaves for Texas. Alabama will then become the most sought after head football job in college football. One reason I think he will stay, is the Crimson Tide football team is the most popular team in the state, we don't have major pro teams right now. Texas has a lot of pro teams, so he might not be as big of a "top dog" in the state.

First of all, to Randy...I didn't go to Alabama but I will always refer to them as we. They are my team and that comment was ignorant. I didn't play for the Colts either but I'm a fan, just FYI. Saban can stay at Alabama and go down as the greatest that ever coached or he can go to Texas and prob do the same. It's not money with him though. It's the accomplishment. It's true that Texas has 100 guys who can give a million bucks, but Saban would rather deal with just one guy. He is not the type to be obligated to go meet number 83's nephews girlfriend just because he gave a bunch of money. Texas needs a politician. You guys should have went with Muschamp when you had the chance. Either way, Texas will be fine and so will Alabama.

Nobody can argue that Nick Saban is not a good (if not great) coach at the college level. But you don't even have to compare Mack Brown to Nick Saban's 4 National Championship victories to know he is not a good coach when you can make a comparison to another coach in the Big 12 Conference.

Mack Brown, currently on his 16th year, boasts a record of 152-45 overall and 92-31 conference wins/losses with 2 Conference titles, 2 NC appearances, and 1 National Championship.

Bob Stoops, currently on his 15th year, boasts a record of 152-37 overall and 93-12 conference wins/losses with 8 Conference titles, 2 NC appearances, and 1 National Championship.

So what really stands out between Mack Brown and Bob Stoops? Since they were both coaches during the Red River Rivalry, Oklahoma has beaten Texas 9 times to Texas beating Oklahoma 5 times and if you follow college football, you don't need to be reminded how badly OU beat Texas the last couple years. Also keep in mind that Bob Stoops led OU to 8 Conference titles in less years than it took Mack Brown to lead Texas to 2 Conference titles. You can't compete for a National Championship, even if you supposedly get the best recruits and have the best facilities and program that money can buy, if you can't win your own Conference.

You can argue about Nick Saban's morals and what not but can you really blame someone for going where the money is? What if they end up putting sanctions on Alabama and taking away their previous championships? Why would he stay other than for the money and if someone else offered considerably more money, why wouldn't he go? I don't think he will go to Texas because it is the Big 12 and he would not want to have to deal with the Longhorn Network. I think he is hoping Lane Kiffen goes down in flames so he can go to USC and make the big money there and retire in sunny southern California.

And for those of you "true fans" that are suggesting that Mack Brown has done a lot for Texas football and deserves to go when he wants, let me ask you this. If Nick Saban only won 1 National Championship at Alabama and only 2 Conference titles and lost 9 out of 14 times to Auburn and if Auburn won 8 Conference titles, would you still think Nick Saban is a great coach?

College football should not be about any one person. It is still a team sport. Nobody should be bigger than the program, especially a coach. It is not mackbrown-football. It is Texas football. Players want to play for Texas because it is Texas and they grow up wanting to be a Longhorn, not because of Mack Brown. They want to play because of Vince Young and Colt McCoy and other great players that played at Texas. Where would Texas have been without those great players? How would Mack Brown's legacy have been without them to pad his win column? The BYU and Ole Miss game is evidence of his coaching skills. The Kansas State game, although the Texas players played with more heart, was still close and KSU, without a great team or recruits, did more to lose the game than Mack Brown did to ensure a win.

When a head coach is being paid $5 million plus a year, are the fans wrong to expect that the team should always be in the hunt for the National Championship especially with the facilities and recruits Texas has access to? A true fan wants what's best for their players and what's best for the players is to win games and get drafted into the NFL. Just look how many less players are getting drafted out of Texas which clearly points to the talent being coached down rather than coached up.

Mack Brown may be a decent person and great with the spin but a great coach he is not. He has a future in politics or being a superintendent at a high school or junior college somewhere but he really has no business coaching any college that wants to be a contender for a National Championship. If he really wants to prove us wrong, go take the Head Coach job at Kansas from Charlie Weis and turn Kansas into a Conference champion otherwise, Mack Brown is simply a good a coach as Charlie Weis.

He has a future in politics or being a superintendent at a high school or junior college somewhere but he really has no business coaching any college that wants to be a contender for a National Championship. If he really wants to prove us wrong, go take the Head Coach job at Kansas from Charlie Weis and turn Kansas into a Conference champion otherwise, Mack Brown is simply a good a coach as Charlie Weis.

Nobody can argue that Nick Saban is not a good (if not great) coach at the college level. But you don't even have to compare Mack Brown to Nick Saban's 4 National Championship victories to know he is not a good coach when you can make a comparison to another coach in the Big 12 Conference.

Mack Brown, currently on his 16th year, boasts a record of 152-45 overall and 92-31 conference wins/losses with 2 Conference titles, 2 NC appearances, and 1 National Championship.

Bob Stoops, currently on his 15th year, boasts a record of 152-37 overall and 93-12 conference wins/losses with 8 Conference titles, 2 NC appearances, and 1 National Championship.

So what really stands out between Mack Brown and Bob Stoops? Since they were both coaches during the Red River Rivalry, Oklahoma has beaten Texas 9 times to Texas beating Oklahoma 5 times and if you follow college football, you don't need to be reminded how badly OU beat Texas the last couple years. Also keep in mind that Bob Stoops led OU to 8 Conference titles in less years than it took Mack Brown to lead Texas to 2 Conference titles. You can't compete for a National Championship, even if you supposedly get the best recruits and have the best facilities and program that money can buy, if you can't win your own Conference.

You can argue about Nick Saban's morals and what not but can you really blame someone for going where the money is? What if they end up putting sanctions on Alabama and taking away their previous championships? Why would he stay other than for the money and if someone else offered considerably more money, why wouldn't he go? I don't think he will go to Texas because it is the Big 12 and he would not want to have to deal with the Longhorn Network. I think he is hoping Lane Kiffen goes down in flames so he can go to USC and make the big money there and retire in sunny southern California.

And for those of you "true fans" that are suggesting that Mack Brown has done a lot for Texas football and deserves to go when he wants, let me ask you this. If Nick Saban only won 1 National Championship at Alabama and only 2 Conference titles and lost 9 out of 14 times to Auburn and if Auburn won 8 Conference titles, would you still think Nick Saban is a great coach?

College football should not be about any one person. It is still a team sport. Nobody should be bigger than the program, especially a coach. It is not mackbrown-football. It is Texas football. Players want to play for Texas because it is Texas and they grow up wanting to be a Longhorn, not because of Mack Brown. They want to play because of Vince Young and Colt McCoy and other great players that played at Texas. Where would Texas have been without those great players? How would Mack Brown's legacy have been without them to pad his win column? The BYU and Ole Miss game is evidence of his coaching skills. The Kansas State game, although the Texas players played with more heart, was still close and KSU, without a great team or recruits, did more to lose the game than Mack Brown did to ensure a win.

When a head coach is being paid $5 million plus a year, are the fans wrong to expect that the team should always be in the hunt for the National Championship especially with the facilities and recruits Texas has access to? A true fan wants what's best for their players and what's best for the players is to win games and get drafted into the NFL. Just look how many less players are getting drafted out of Texas which clearly points to the talent being coached down rather than coached up.

Mack Brown may be a decent person and great with the spin but a great coach he is not. He has a future in politics or being a superintendent at a high school or junior college somewhere but he really has no business coaching any college that wants to be a contender for a National Championship. If he really wants to prove us wrong, go take the Head Coach job at Kansas from Charlie Weis and turn Kansas into a Conference champion otherwise, Mack Brown is simply as good a coach as Charlie Weis.

How nice that you want our coach. It's nice being number one. However, here are two reasons it will never happen:

1. Nick Saban and his wife chose The University of Alabama partly because of location and Mrs. Saban's desire to "return to the South" after living in Miami. Now, I have lived in Miami, Tuscaloosa and Austin. All are wonderful places, but I'm telling you Nick is where he belongs and he's staying there. No offense meant to you Texans, but honestly - Texas is not The South. It's Texas. You can't have it both ways, people...

2. Your conference is a joke. Saban could send one of his assistant coaches to Austin and lead y'all to a conference championship. Why would he step down from the undisputed premiere conference? You vastly overestimate his ego. Saban is making history at Alabama and is proud to be there - it's so obvious in everything he does. Whoever thinks he is "bored" couldn't be more silly. He is the busiest man in NCAA sports.

1. I'm sure you're being facetious, but Bubba Gump Shrimp is fiction and there is no such county in the entire state of Alabama as "Greenbow". While Nathan Bedford Forest is a real historical figure and did start the Ku Klux Klan, it was not started as a hate group. The state of Texas currently has the largest chapter.

2. You dare someone to find a decent Mexican resturant in Tuscaloosa? Ummm....I'm at a loss for words on that. You're likely right. However, most people, with the exception of Mexicans, don't consider that to be prestigious cuisine.

3. It won't come to a bidding war. If Saban would leave for more money than we are willing to counter for; you guys can have him. There is a difference between monetary worth and intgritous worth. If you don't believe that, just listen to him talk.

4. What else does he have to prove, period? Saban is 62 years old. Do you not think he would get just as bored at UT when he is 70? Yes, he would be 70 in the amount of time it would take to bring you what he has brought us; chronologically speaking.

5. Refer to 4.

6. Huh? Life is what each individual makes it. If being, "like a box of chocolates" is what one wants then that's what one gets. The difference between Alabama and Texas has nothing to do with that.... And we a have prettier beach than any place in Texas.

7. If that is what Saban thought was important he wouldn't be where he is. One game at a time and each man must do his job. That was the most ignorant statement of your list. Saban is a control freak. If you guys can give him total control (as Alabama has), he MIGHT look your way.

LOL, sorry losers. Best job in college football, indeed. Let us know when you've won a few more national championships, and actually have more of a reason to be as arrogant as you are, idiots. You know, I think Saban MIGHT actually have been considering going there, but then this McCombs fool actually SAID that "there's more money up there than there is at the Vatican"! I can't imagine anything that might turn Saban off more! LOL You guys are living, excreting proof that money does not buy class, and rest assured that the rest of the country IS laughing at you!!! Enjoy that Longhorns network...

Texas fans made a mountain out of pure fantasy. Don't you think it's time to move on and hire a coach that is willing to put up with the "grease fire" that is your "40 acres" And it's that way because of pompous, big mouthed, entitled, so called boosters.
