    Coaching matters. See: in front of your face.
    Saban not only wins a national title at Texas....hell, he probably wins it his second year there.

    He cheats though too.

    I think the guy just enjoys a change of scenery and something new.

    You think Tom Brady ever gets tired of banging Giselle? I bet he does.
    Yeah, but with those pointy elbows, can you blame him?

    Re: Chips are falling

    No way he leaves Bama for Texas. All he has to do is go 1-1 against A&M and LSU to get to the SEC title game. Of course they'll be ranked in the top 5 as they win four weak non-con home games and the the other powers of the mighty SEC West like Kentucky, Vandy, Tenn., and the two Miss. schools. This is the beauty of their schedule. No Florida, Georgia or USC in the regular season.

    Whereas, in the Big XII, he'd have to play all the teams in the conference. The top tier teams, the good teams, and even the bottom teams. He may make more money at Texas, however, because of the ease of their path to the SEC title game, he'll have a much easier route to the National Title game. Plus they pay their players better in the SEC.

    If nothing else Texas can force Alabama to have to spend $4mil more a year and get nothing more for it.

    You think Nick Saben is shaking about facing TCU, Oklahoma or Okie State?

    Texas' Mack Brown will sue if pressured to resign to clear way for Nick Saban - FanSided - Sports News, Entertainment, Lifestyle & Technology - 240+ Sites

    Mack's attorney threatens to sue outsiders who pressure Mack to resign.

    Mack Brown is like your stubborn grandpa who won't give up his driver's license despite being half-blind and senile

    With everyone so in love with the SEC, Ohio State, Oregon State, etc. - a one loss Texas could miss out to other one loss teams. The national media influences this and they are not impressed with Big 12 football right now.
    If/when Texas ever gets back to national prominence, they will be a media darling again. An 11-1 Texas team will be a very strong pick for the playoffs, the media will get back on it's knees for Texas, especially ESPN.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    I predict this is going to happen.

    He'll deny it all season — then bolt on the nearest Monday after Alabama's postseason game is done.

    Probably not a popular thought on this board, but reality.
    Actually 2 losses are fine, too. See LSU 2007.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    If I was Texas I would have back stage passes and a lifetime pass to Austin City Limits as a bonus.
