    I read 20MM but you're in the banking business so your sources may be a heck of a lot more accurate

    Mike Price, too. Mike Dumbo Ears Dubose makes three. Think they could make prodigal returns - or would Saban want to add them to his illustrious coaching tree at Tejas?

    I can't speak for him, but it is pretty clear that the one thing Saban requires before any further discussion is complete control over the football program, with a close second being who his real boss is. With all the apparent infighting going on with the UT BoR, including a sitting governor apparently actively and openly trying to fire a president, it does not appear that anybody can tell him who his boss is or will be, and he has that in spades at Alabama, along with complete control of all things football. And I understand that some debt relief is already up and running.

    You never say never, especially with college football coaches, but I can't for the life of me figure out how this is something other than he and Jimmy Sexton (i) setting the market on college football coaches (Sexton represents quite a few on commission, as I am sure you guys know), and (ii) Saban recognizing that he will never have more leverage than he does right now, so there's something he wants that he is going to get while the getting is good.

    Apparently she is. I can also tell you have not been to Tuscaloosa or Birmingham in a while. Or at least not the right parts. Plus, don't you think if shopping is a problem she has access to a plane?

    "Terry Saban opened up about life as the wife of a BCS title-winning coach and Saban's interest in Texas during a profile for the Wall Street Journal. The most important news for Alabama fans was to hear Terry's definitive response to the reports of house hunting in Austin.

    "We're staying," Saban told the WSJ. "We're not going anywhere."

    Per several sources, the extension is agreed to with a raise to somewhere north of $7 million per year. Hope it is true.

    It is - with the proviso of course that Tejas pay off that $40M debt before Saban arrives in Austin in 2021 - to, you know, work gratis as recompense for taking down Colt and Mack's whole Tejas program with one ill-begotten play way back in 2010.
