And yet they stayed hitched to that skeleton they have....
Gotta say...I don't like the sound of that one bit.
He could have rings on both fingers when he's done.
It's not how much $ a program makes overall. It's how much a program is willing to pay and the one thing I can promise is no program right now in college football will pay a coach $10 million dollars. Alabama can match anything Texas offers!
Yep, the highest paid NFL coach only makes $8 mill a year.
People that think a college would put up $10 mill are crazy.
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
You can smell the fear of Bama while Saban remains since he has no plans to leave until he retires.
You don't have to pay players in College (well not as much)
$140-150mil that Texas makes go into the program and they have a lot of upside on what they spend.
Their boosters are disappointed with what they are doing ATM and will offer what ever it takes to start winning again. IMO that will include a bidding war on Saban, it's not if but when.
Saban will not leave Bama for a college program. You might as well get that idea out of your head.
Alabama would match 10 milllion and it's not like he has any trouble recruiting at Bama.
Wishful thinking dominates the meek.
ALABAMA. COULD. MATCH. ANYTHING. THAT TEXAS. OFFERS. Did you comprehend it that time?
Say Texas did offer 10 million......bama would match it and more.
Besides if their boosters were serious....they would have gotten rid of Brown 2 years ago.
Texas can hire a number of coaches that could win at Texas for less than Saban makes if they'ed grow balls and fire brown
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
Alabama is the most profitable athletic dept in college athletics, if its about money they want be beat. UT brings in more, but Bama makes more.
now, one day he may decide he wants to leave but it want be about money.
Every time Im in Tuscaloosa, Im reminded of what a gorgeous campus Alabama has. It truly looks like a postcard Chris Low
Alabama the most profitable athletic dept in college athletics? No. Do some research boy. They "want" be beat, Lol, I am betting you're a Bama grad. It "want" be about money? Amazing..

Not more talent per square mile. Not even close. Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana combined are about the size of Texas and combined have far more talent.
I'm not going to defend the "want" vs "won't" usage (can't), but he was right on the profitable part. I don't know if there is anything for 2011-2012 yet.
At this point Alabama could get another good coach and keep rolling like LSU did. Lots of coaches would love to come in and coach all te talent he will leave.
I saw the recent figures, and Texas was out in front. Also, what kind of an idiot is this? Who doesn't know the difference between "want" and "won't?"
The only place Saban goes is the NFL.
As far as "no one will beat them" tell that to aTm...
Then let me educate you. Alabama now has the Top 2 coaches with National Championships. Bear Bryant with 6 and Nick Saban with 4. It is about tradition and doing it at the same school the best did it at. Class dismissed..
That loss in Atlanta still hurts huh?
You forgot Woody Hayes... He has 5. But 2 of top 3 is accurate.
Saban is in the Southeast, theres no better talent than that... Florida and Georgia are all you need for talent.
This is an irrelevant convo, but just to share various sources of the real figures over the past 5 year.. Alabama is neck in neck with Texas, whether you like to believe it or not. Third link is most recent I believe
Where the nation's top D1 schools receive and spend their cash.
The data are based on the revenue and expense reports collected from more than 225 public schools in the NCAA's Division I.
