    Wow...Could Irish call on Nick Saban?

    Nick Saban should be insulted. He should be so angry, every headset from here to Auburn should be very, very afraid. How many undefeated regular seasons does the guy have to stack on top of each other to get a little respect? Of all the slights Saban’s received, this one may be the biggest. The Notre Dame job appears ready to come open in less than a week, and absolutely no major media outlet has mentioned the Alabama coach as a potential candidate. Never mind that he’s Catholic. And that he’s one of the top three coaches in college football. And that he’s Catholic. And that Notre Dame finds itself in the exact same position as Alabama three years ago, in serious need of a proven winner to restore a faded power to its former glory. And did I mention that he’s Catholic? If someone close to the Fighting Irish doesn’t pick up the phone and call someone close to Saban, at least to check his pulse, then Notre Dame isn’t as smart as it would like you to think. It wouldn’t be the first time Notre Dame has reached out behind the scenes to gauge the interest of an Alabama coach. Dennis Franchione once showed up on the Irish radar. – Birmingham News

    Wow this would sure shake things up a bit...who would fill Bama?

    Isn't Alabama a final destination job?

    I would think the Birmingham News would be thankful the Bama coach isn't mentioned, rather than say it is an insult he isn't. As previously stated, claiming it is an insult is admitting the ND job is better.

    I'm Catholic and I hate Notre Dame. FYI we don't pledge allegiance to the golden dome and Touchdown Jesus during confirmation.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    I think it is now referred to as "Fieldgoal" Jesus.

    I agree. I'm Irish and Catholic and my belly is full of the ND bs.

    Doubtful - I heard he's firmly entrenched at Auburn...

    I was raised Catholic and didn't know a single Notre Dame fan in the whole church. Everyone was Hawkeye, Cyclone, or just didn't care.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Ha, I actually should have specified better. I meant I hope Chizik hopes they call Saban.

    Saban & Final Destination in the same sentence? Some coaches simply cannot or will not maintain a program. Saying Saban will stay at Alabama is like saying Tim Floyd will stay at UTEP, Idaho, New Orleans, Iowa State, Chicago, New Orleans, or USC.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Touchdown Jesus reduced to fieldgoal Jesus. That's too funny...
