    Is the Big 12 ready for Nick Saban?

    All sorts of rumors that his wife was house hunting in Texas. ESPN Austin has confirmed also.

    Saban

    why would he leave for Texas? What could Texas football possible have that Alabama football doesn't?

    I'll believe it when I see it. He's not going to break anyone's National championship record of he keeps switching schools. Other than setting a record, what does he have left to prove?

    A challenge. Winning the conference next year at Alabama would be meeting expectations. He'd be praised as a god in Texas for winning the big 12 next year.

    Plus I also think that even with how arrogant Saban is he knows that all of these runs come to an end in CFB and he could get out before Bama's starts winding down.

    this is the correct answer. If he wins it again this year he'd have 4 of the last 5 championships. He just might want to do something different.

    That, $$$$, and a much easier path to National Title game (in his mind). Practically semi-retirement but making more money...

    That he's the greatest college football coach ever. Turning Alabama and Texas into dynasties plus winning a title at LSU would make a pretty solid argument.

    Preparation of a Courtney Messiness (spell check suggested I changed it to this, so I did) offense...

    If Texas hires Saban I'd put the over/under on OU firing Stoops at 2 years and I might take the under.

    If he wanted a real challenge why doesn't he come to Iowa State?
