    jacob,

    an analogy to try and help.

    for millions and millions of years the colorado river has carved the wonders of the grand canyon. this eon was a little rainy and canyon development was significant, that eon was a little dry and the river's impact on the canyon is less. the river always runs, it is always working its wonders on the canyon.

    bama football is like the grand canyon. the most awe inspiring and beautiful feature within the landscape of college football. some years in the bottom of the canyon where the battle takes place you have a Paul Bryant or a saban. in these years the canyon's features are embelished. some years you have mike dubose, some years ncaa sanctions and you can barely see an impact. when saban leaves alabama(and he will leave alabama) there could be a little flow redirected to wash some brackish water out the bayou for a year or two. who knows?

    saban has been huge. saban may continue to be huge at bama. but saban aint bigger than bama. he may leave, but the natural order of things is always eventually restored and the tide will just keep on rolling, with nick, without nick.

    p.s. i bet when saban is at texas and bama kicks his butt in the "football tournament" he wont cry because he lost whoever his "colt mccoy" is that year!

    Schaeffer, I pretty sure it's not "can't strings", but that's besides the point. You come on here and try to question the intelligence of an entire region and look like a jackass doing it. Bjoiner, I really don't care about the spelling or grammar I was making a point. Now if you want to really talk football...

    If Saban goes to Texas it won't be a Longhorn on his shirt.........It will be a star.

    Les Miles to Texas...not a chance, he has no ties to the university at all

    Nick Saban to Texas...sounds plausible, but it will all depend on who the AD is. Texas is all about image, its not about the money, Texas will always take the safe route, not neccessarily the best pick..They will go after someone who says all the right things and doesnt have a lot of skeletons in their closet..Texas also doesnt want to think they have to buy a coach to bring home championships..the egos on Guadalupe and Red River St are the biggest in the state

    IMO they will go after someone like Chris Peterson from Boise St, or the coach from Stanford, whose name escapes me right now..whoever they decide on it will leave Texas fans scratching their head and saying WHO

    I few years ago I would agree with you. But, I think when they do pull trigger they will want success now not in a few years. They need someone with a national name to bring in the recruits from outside Texas now that A&M is making a name for itself. But they need to do something. Mack has out stayed his welcome.

    There is one other possibilty and that is to lure Chuckie aka Jon Gruden out of the booth

    And Mackovic's ties to Texas? And Saddle-Bags-Under-His-Eyes-Packed Mack's?

    Or Saban's ties to Alabama before he became "plausible" to Texas?

    You may need to follow college football a little more closely to know how to follow the money.

    Anyone who thinks that hasn't seen them play. It is painful to watch Florida. Tennessee is pretty weak by SEC standards--has been for years--but they are getting better. They did manage to improve upon the effort by the mighty Wahoos by a field goal. Neither are terrible teams. Oregon is pretty scary.
