If I were Saban, I would just want to get away from the spoiled, psychotic fanbase.

Those people are insane.

You're not getting any better going to Texas. Texas has just as many if not more psychotic fans.

Actually, I hear Texas fans are generally better. Co-worker went to a game down there as a fan of the other school (Ohio State), and he said it was a very hospitable experience. They don't murder people over rivalry games, and they don't poison trees out of spite.

I concur. While college ball is definitely big out here, it's not the same insane passion level as the SEC. Its not he pinnacle of the football weekend thanks to Friday Night Lights and the Cowboys.

They'd at least give him 2-3 years of kindness before going crazy like Bama fans are now. Bama fans think he sucks because they didn't win a third title in a row.

That's because there's more to do.

As for the recruits stuff, thats what I was referring to when I said IF he can surround himself with coaches that know what it takes to win in the SEC. If he surrounds himself with x's o's coaches, and can still recruit the way he does at Clemson, Alabama would be VERY dangerous. Plus, he would get better players at Bama than he does at Clemson.
but he would have to play a legitimate schedule also. if Bama hired Dabo they would take a step back period

If Texas offers 10 mil do you really think Alabama couldn't or wouldn't offer that if matching would keep Saban at Bama?

Alabama doesn't want Dabo due to the style of offense Clemson plays.Alabama has a certain type of coach thats fits the Alabama philosophy and I don't think thats Dabo. Look for Kirby Smart to be the guy if Saban leaves.

The fact that Saban hasn't signed for a new contract at Alabama says it all. I'm sure both Bama & Texas know the deal is all but done at this point and if I'm Bama, I'm hiring Kirby Smart as HC.

If Texas offered 10 mil and Bama matched it Texas would offer more.

Dabo wouldn't last a year at Bama, or Texas. Why do people keep bringing his name up as if he's a serious candidate? It will not happen, he'll get run out of Pickens next year, count on it. Now Chad Morris might get a good offer, but not Texas or Bama.

I'd bet Bama could and would do that, but I don't think Bama can offer 1% of the SEC network (heard rumors Saban was offered 1% of the Longhorn Network).

I would imagine with the 5 star talent in Tejas, and Saban's ability to actually coach said talent up (unlike some coaches that draw 5 star talent and coach them into 3 star performers *cough*Dabo*cough*), he would have first dibs on just about everyone, and he could turn UT around in a heartbeat. That sucks...

Saban to Texas, Spurrier to Alabama, Dabo to USC, and Danny Ford to Clemson.

It's a done deal.
