    Re: Chips are falling

    Can you honestly see Saban leaving 'Bama?

    I can't.

    Now, Mack leaving Texas - that I can see. Involuntarily, of course.

    Darn, I was hoping this would have to do with Mess, not Mack.

    Texas has the money to double saban's salary if they wanted to.

    I don't see Saban having loyalty to Alabama. It will be if Texas offers enough, Alabama doesn't counter with enough, and if Saban thinks he can win in Texas.

    With Saban I don't think it is about loyalty to a university - it is about where can he win national championships. Right now there is no better place than 'Bama to do that.

    Texas most robust athletic department as revenues climb across the country - CBSSports.com

    I realize the numbers are from 2011, but Bama was #3 behind Texas and tOSU in Revenue, but actually had more profit than Texas because their costs were much smaller. I don't think Texas has that much more financial ability than Bama does.

    Please please please please please don't fire Mack until AFTER we upset them on 10/3. I don't want another Colorado incident.

    Re: Chips are falling

    It all depends on what comes from the paying players accusations that seem to have already been swept under the rug. If something happens he will be gone, but if he can cheat and get away with it at Alabama then he will stay put.

    Nick Saban would have no problem winning a national title at Texas.

    Frankly I think he could have the same type of success at either school. If the money is about the same he'd probably stay just because it wouldn't be worth the hassle. If it's an extra 4 million a year though?

    Re: Chips are falling

    Nick Saban getting hired at Texas is probably A&Ms worst nightmare in their quest for state superiority.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    Re: Chips are falling

    Is Texas in the current Big 12 an easier path to the title than Alabama in the current SEC? Personally I think so. That said, Alabama is already rolling while Texas has some building to do.
