Saban Nick Saban to Texas Appears to be a Done Deal

Image from Forbes

We have word now from two trusted sources that Nick Saban to Texas is a done deal. One of the sources said the money he will get is substantial (obviously) but we haven’t got any word on what that number might be.

UPDATE: for those asking for exact dates on when this is going to happen. We don’t know. We are telling you what we know which is that we have two very good sources that have told us that Nick Saban is going to Texas and one of the sources said that the money is going to be substantial. We would not have run this unless we trusted the sources.

We received word from one source saying it was going to happen and then we contacted a second source asking for confirmation and the second source confirmed. That’s what we know.

 


  • Nate Heupel

    So, Nick Saban is going to end his career at Alabama by getting run out of the state by Gus Malzahn? Ouch.

    • Melanie Vosbury Ponder

      Yeah whatever! The story isnt true and hes definitely not being run out by gus malzahn! Lmao, only in auburns dreams cause they know whats in store for them next year!

      • CoachStauder

        ^^^^ thought she got arrested for shooting another bama fan at a party…she must be an escape artist like Mr. Malzahn

        • Melanie Vosbury Ponder

          Uh ok….thats the dumbest thing Ive ever heard, but what can you expect coming from an auburn fan!

          • James

            that person actually was making a correct reference on how alabama woman shot another alabama woman after the game because she didnt take the lost serious enough its on ESPN…

          • David E. Gibson

            That’s NOT True…. the woman who was Killed was a Miami Heat fan…. from Miami… A Drunk idiot shot her :(

          • melissap

            last time i checked, Auburn doesnt sent out death threats to their players for loosing a game. Before you bash someone please make sure you have Bama in check for seriously LACK OF RESPECT

          • Pamela Trammell

            Robert McGinty ring a bell? Missed the winning FG against Bama in 86. Not only threatened by fans, but Pat Dye & Co ran him off! He transfered to Florida, and played a huge part in the Gators defeat of the Barn the following season….sweet irony!

        • Pamela Trammell

          Said the troll that doesn’t use his name….or photo.

      • Scotty Bates

        Bama has nothing next year. AJ McTat is gone and they have no suitable replacement.

        • Tyler Thrower

          Alabama will be fine…do you think because AJ leaves that we lose all of our talent? Don’t be a dumbass Scotty.

          • Lisa Collins

            What is funny is for 4 years we have heard how AJ is not that good a QB and is just a good “manager’, now that he is leaving our team will fall apart?? Bahaha. People say the dumbest things. Heard on the radio today again we will be #1 in recruiting, bet we can find a suitable replacement for AJ and all the seniors leaving.

          • Tyler Thrower

            Saban has been busting ass on the recruiting trail too! We’ve landed a high 4 star and a 5 star this week already. Last week we landed the number one recruit in the nation in Hand. Bunch of idiots who believe there is any truth to this.

          • Pamela Trammell

            I don’t believe it one bit! It’s damn sure getting old AF though!

          • Texas Tyler

            Garrett Gilbert was the #1 QB in the nation, 5* and everything, went to TEXAS, everyone was all excited, and now he can’t lead SMU to a bowl game! Watch out for those 5* rankings…they don’t mean sh**.

          • lmcpark

            We have a little experience with 5 star recruits.

          • joe

            Look out……they could flip to a better team down the road

          • Scott Wheat

            Not a month ago the talking heads had AJ McTattoo slated as the best QB at SPUAT eva.

          • lmcpark

            You people are just jealous. He’s never been the best QB but he does win championships. How many has your team won?

          • Scott Wheat

            Two, with the potential of three imagined championships.

          • JD Sides

            I think the game last night with OU will go to prove that AJ is not a great pressure QB. He is a great manager though. He is suspected to go around 42 in draft. So no. in the world of QB’s he is not that great. Your WR and RB’s are though.

        • CC

          Oh my you haven’t been keeping up with the recruitment have ya Scotty! Bama outdid them all! Look out baby!

          • David E. Gibson

            Scotty don’t know what to say :) (dummass)

          • JD Sides

            Dumbass*

          • foggy

            I think the truth really is BAMA OUTBID THEM ALL. !!

          • joe

            febuary

          • Chuck Maske

            Yep, that’s it. Bama buys players. Because who in their right mind would want to go to a school with a great football tradition, facilities on par with anyone in the nation (and better than most), and play for a coach that most people agree is the best thing going in CFB ? Right…that makes no sense at all.

          • foggy

            The evidence is there. It’s already disappeared. The SEspnC is the best semi-pro league in the nation!

        • Lisa Collins

          Yeah nothing but the #1 recruiting class yet again.

        • Pamela Trammell

          Bama has TWO 5* QBs in line for the job. We are LOADED and Saban has two huge commits since Saturday, soooo we aren’t worried. lol

          • lmcpark

            I thought that was true but I wasn’t sure so I didn’t post. Thanks.

        • Roger Jacoby

          Fool!

        • Mandy

          Just wondering if you even keep up with recruiting…….

        • David E. Gibson

          Cornwell will shutt em’ all up :)

        • Scott McCollum

          Have you seen the last several years of our recruiting? Bama is loaded and will win a few more national championships. We are recruiting our best class ever this year! #KissTheRings!

        • Chris

          Yall talking bout all these great recruits Alabama got well you have those same kind of talented players on your team this year and you lost wah wah bama fans We’ll give yall a second to wipe your tears WAR EAGLE!!

          • lmcpark

            Alabama gave you that game. Anybody could have run that ball back whuie Bama stood and watched him do it. How many games did you win last year? We lost one this year and you will too.

          • Joe Albright

            Auburn already lost one this year. Alabama did not have there starting center because of injury and the timing on the line was off. Any great coach will tell you they would rather change the quarterback over the center. Auburn won and we lost.

          • Tom Jude Byrne

            we did lose one …… or do you just watch one team play ball?

          • joe

            you probably think he ran out of bounds. Get real your coach blew the game for ya dummy.

          • JD Sides

            Better make that two. I guess Bama gave them that game too. When bama loses it isn’t a loss. It is a chance to remind everyone who asks you about it how many championships you have. (no matter how fake they are)

        • Pamela Trammell
        • Trent Bobo

          Moron. We could lose everything but our 3rd string and still have a better chance of winning that whoever you root for. We’re losing A.J. and C.J. besides that, we are solid. Don’t worry about the tide, we got this.

        • ironoxide

          You are right Alabama will have to replace the quarter back, not only offensively but defensively as well. However, they have a ton of talent at QB, all of which were red shirted this year. It may take a year to get them comfortable; however, as with Manziel and Winston they may have one come through spring that is actually better than McCarron…who knows. Other than that Alabama is actually a young team on paper.

      • PJ Schwackhammer

        Anybody wondering why Saban would leave just needs to read the posts of idiots like this. Entirely representative of the Dumbest Fanbase In America.

        • melissap

          more along the lines of “without football, the male population would die”.

          • ironoxide

            In all actually we would probably thrive, it takes up way to much of our productive time.

      • Brandon

        Oh and there it is! The “next year” talk. LOL “Next Year”

        • Michael Tibbitt

          I quite well remember many auburn fans saying exactly that about 12 months ago so watch what you brag about.Auburn said that and had to improve 9 games better bama only has to get ONE better lol

          • melissap

            In which getting the BEST EVER play in College football. lol And im not even from Alabama.

          • lmcpark

            Anybody could have run that in for a touchdown. I guess you didn’t see the play. Bama stood there and watched. Give me a break. Auburn played a great game but…they got lucky Bama wasn’t on their game.

          • Pamela Trammell

            I could show you better plays. Obviously you haven’t watched much college football.

      • Jim Scott

        Another Win?

      • bob wylie

        you “bammers” are going to have to wait 350 something days………until then……….lol

      • Pokerman

        I sincerely wish these Bama and Auburn fans would take their rooster fight somewhere else.

    • CC

      No because Auburn and their half cocked miracles will run out soon!

      • Hortance

        Tie game for four quarters. Miracles? Like the miracle where Auburn ran the ball down your gullets on their final drive? When you KNEW they’d be running the ball? LOL. BAMA is a fraud.

        • David E. Gibson

          Bama has beaten that Kow Kollege 3 out of the last 5 meeting… numbers don’t lie…. that’s 60%

          • JD Sides

            Here is the major problem with Bama Fans for the most part. You live in the past. You cling to your past achievements. Well, this year you lost. Deal with it. It was a good game and your coaches screwed you over and Auburns played that last play brilliantly. Done is done.

          • Bama fan

            Live in the past? Seriously? We are currently an amazing team and yes we do have a history of being an amazing team. Losing one game, especially a rival game, does not make us some shitty team. This is ridiculous. Auburn won’t look in the past because your overall record is crap. You may have beat us once more than we beat you in the past 30 years and you may have run one good play, but look at your National Championship record.

          • James

            Actually, if you look at the records Auburn has been awarded a total of 16 national championships since 1900. The school only officially recognizes two. Look it up.

          • ironoxide

            Alabama has by NCAA accounts (recognized by NCAA) 13 national titles; Auburn has 2; that’s per the NCAA website, look it up. Alabama only claims two that IMO and the NCAA’s that should not be counted, the most egregious being 1941.

          • Pamela Trammell

            I’m sorry yall have so little to cling to….

          • ironoxide

            Bama has a recent and distant past that both include multiple National Championship; are you saying you wouldn’t relish past achievements if your team possessed the same?

          • DA

            I love how you picked the last five years because it suits bama. How about the last 10 years (AU 6 of 10) or the last 20 years (AU 11 of 20) or the last 30 years (AU 16 of 30). You are right about one thing… numbers dont lie

          • Guest

            Auburn beat Bama five years in a row…what you say of that?

          • melissap

            I personally think the move would be great. Replacing one egomanic for another lol

          • Chris

            Actually that was 6 years in a row lol WAR EAGLE!!

          • Pamela Trammell

            Bama beat Auburn NINE years in a row! The day the Barn equals that is the day I become a Barner, Never gonna happen! RMFT!

          • Charles McInnis

            A recent report shows Auburn grads making more money than UA grads. In addition, the entrance exam scores at Auburn are higher than those at UA. The Auburn family members don’t feel they are “entitled” to anything as UA fans do. We earn it, as the Auburn team did last Saturday. If you have ever wondered why the Alabama team is called elephants, just look at their out-of-shape linemen lumber down the field as if they could catch Chris Davis. Comical, even high school players know they have to cover a kick like that. Saban was out coached.

          • lmcpark

            You are ridiculous. I have heard these stats you report by AU fans and it’s not true. Prove it. Bama had 22 graduating seniors this year on the squad. Two of those were gradute degrees. Graduation rate for student athletes were second only to Vanderbilt. Chris Davis will have to prove every game next year he can make the miracle play. Good luck with that.

          • Chris

            Wow 3 wins to 2 big odd winners there huh congrats let me ponder on that FOR A SECOND!!

    • Roger Jacoby

      Ain’t happenin’! Next…

    • joe

      there a new sheriff in town

  • Rashad See

    So why does he keep saying that he is staying? Am I to understand that Alabama is unwillingly to match the money Texas would be offering?

    • Billy Jackson

      Great question. However, Saban was adamant at not going to Alabama less than a week before taking the job at Alabama.

      Just seems strange any amount of money would be worth having to put up with the LHN and he’s far from being the media personality Mac is.

      • PJ Schwackhammer

        “I’m not going to be the Alabama coach” –Nick Saban, two weeks before becoming Alabama’s coach.

        • chasejamy

          I hope it is true. It will make us better. Bob will need to get in gear now. Posted it on C Corner, but my post has disappeared.

          • Bammer

            If Saban goes to Texas you Sooners better be ready to bow down and recognize. He will own you guys….Stoops can’t coach half as well as Saban even on his best day.

          • chasejamy

            Saban is one hell of a coach, regardless what a lot of other say. Ou will have there hands full, that includes our OC

          • Bammer

            I mean no disrespect for OU either bro…..I want him to stay in Bama but if he does go to Austin, its gonna be bad for the Big 12. It will only benefit the horns.

          • Billy Jackson

            It’s all good, man. I know what you mean. Saban’s serious business. However, if this does end up being true, I believe it’s good for the Big 12. Meaning, if Texas is good, then the Big 12 is good. If both Texas and OU are good, then it’s GREAT for the Big 12.

            And maybe, just maybe, it would start changing the offenses back to big boy football instead of all this gimmicky Hal Mumme junk I’m so sick of.

            Maybe this is going down, but I still think Bama would come back with a crazy offer to match anything UT throws at him. If I were him, I wouldn’t leave Bama.

          • j l

            You do realize stoops has a better overall record than saban does, right?

            Saban is not that much better than stoops, if at all. A wet paper bag at coach could win with 30 5 stars on a team, and a weak schedule like bama plays.

          • Doc Longhorn

            Seriously? In your defense, I think the SEC has two top teams and all the rest just chant SEC, SEC, SEC – because their teams are so weak.

            But you must be on something if you think Stoops is any where close to the same level as Saban. Last I checked, Saban won 3 out of the last four NC’s. How many has Stoops won?

          • j l

            Stoops- 158-39(.802 win%)

            Saban- 165-56(.746 win %)

            Honestly, if stoops had bama’s team the last 4 years, you honestly dont think he could have won 3 titles?

            Stoops won a title with john blakes recruits, I think he could win 3 with 30 5 stars like saban has.

            Does bama even have a 3 star on their team?

            There is a big difference between being a better recruiter, and a better coach. Mack brown is obviously the better recruiter, but hes 6-9 vs stoops. I think that tells you who the better coach is.

            Im not saying saban isnt a good coach, but I dont think people give stoops anywhere near the credit he deserves. Its very hard to keep a team at this level for 15 years.

          • Super K

            Saban and Stoops faced each other once at Saban won by a TD despite the fact that our starting QB was playing injured. Stoops can coach.

    • vargo05

      Sarkisian told his players he wasn’t going anywhere either. We know how that turned out.

    • Super K

      Rashad – you’ve been on our site and you know we don’t BS y’all. We told you everything we we’re told.

      • Rashad See

        I understand. Forgive me though when you see something like this, you want as much information as you can get. I know y’all are some stand up dudes and write what is true at the time and I have no doubt that if you all wrote it that it could be taking place soon unless there is some monumental change of heart by nick Saban.

  • Billy Jackson

    Hmm….Still trying to wrap my head around this. If this ends up happening, I think it will only help the Big 12′s profile, which is much needed. I also expect the RRR to become even more intense.

  • DrBoomerSooner

    Y’alls street cred goes through the roof if this is true ;)

    • Kewan L Woodard

      That’s a lie .

  • bjwalker82

    How does that work with Mack still being on staff, and them having a game this weekend and all….?

  • Super K

    Trust us guys. This is coming from 2 GOOD sources. Heard it from one source earlier and didn’t say anything. Talked to another source and they confirmed it.

    • Rashad See

      what is the reasoning here? is the motivator money or is he trying to be the Larry Brown of College Football? When you say done deal, do you mean an announcement is coming within a week or two, prior to the bowl games or what?

      • JD

        reasoning might be his wife saying let’s get the F out of Bama and move to Austin

        • Kewan L Woodard

          He and his wife are not leaving Tuscaloosa at all.

        • ghamilton

          Lmfao

      • Super K

        Don’t know the reasoning is and we don’t know when it’s going to be announced. We were told its going to happen and the money is going to be huge.

        • Tyler Thrower

          or you just wanted hits to your little website……right? Be honest guy…

        • ironoxide

          Did your sources ask not to be identified, are they boosters, are the administration? If they’re boosters I would automatically question the credibility. Lastly, why would these credible sources report to a predominately Oklahoma site?

    • Rashad See

      Any word on who would be inline for the Alabama job?

      • PJ Schwackhammer

        It’d be Kirby Smart. Alabama loves to hire the minions of the last guy who succeeded there.

        • Jason Long

          I HEARD IT WAS GONNA BE A YOUNG BOY THAT SHINED THE BEAR’S SHOES BACK IN 1978

    • TheSoonerNation

      and does Mack Brown know this is taking place?

    • Joeaveragefan

      You do realize the entire credibility of you and your site hinges on this being correct? GL!

      • Travis Coyle

        I have been reading this site from the jump. Everything they have said has been accurate. I can tell when these negative people that show up and talk tough. Will be to bad if you never come back. :(

        • Joeaveragefan

          C’mon Travis, the Oklahoma shills had to expect this response when their story got nationwide pub. They took a shot and if they are right….bingo, instant cred among their peers not to mention the traffic already generated. I forwarded the link to @DPShow so they get full credit. As mentioned GL! But why would they consider pulling down the story as Super K has alluded?

          • Travis Coyle

            I know, but these guys are great. Just the trash talk is not something I have seen here until this came out.

    • TheSoonerNation

      I hope you are right Karim. If you are you will have out scooped the entire nation on this story. Any chance of getting a third possible source to confirm this information?

    • Tyler Thrower

      I HEARD IT ON THE INTERNET…IT MUST BE TRUE!?!?!??!

  • OUFan123

    “And quite frankly, I’m too damn old to start over somewhere else.” -Saban, in September

    UT has the most money of all NCAA teams, so it makes sense. Obviously would raise the Big XII’s profile…and hurt OU in the recruiting trail if we don’t win the Red River Rivalry.

    • Hydrogen

      “I will not be the next head coach at Alabama” -Nick Saban, one day before signing as the new head coach at Alabama

      • OUFan123

        Oh I know Saban has a history of denying a job opportunity, then accepting it right afterwards. I’m just pointing out that maybe the deep pockets at UT, and Texas recruiting, would be too much for him to pass up.

        • Dale Sandy Higginbotham

          and why do you think he does that dumbass, his team was playing a game the night he denied it. What was he going to say Yes I think dolphins owner is going to come out tomorrow and let me out of my contract and kill my team tonight, get a clue

          • CoachStauder

            He could have answered that question with far more ambiguity in order to avoid looking like a fool.

            Of course he wouldn’t have come out and said it when he denied it this time because his team was competing for a national title at the time.

            Your reasoning doesn’t hold up, Dale, and you are actually making a point for Saban to lie about leaving and then go ahead and leave. He is just protecting his team again, right?

            So pull that corn cob out of your butt and stop being derogatory towards posters just because you don’t agree with them.

          • boomersooner

            wow that really escalated fast. yet another tough guy on the internet. sticks and stones brother…sticks and stones

  • dahldennsull

    While I admit this sucks for us to him to go to our main rival, I have to say this is big for the Big 12 and it’s reputation. Getting a big name coach who could instill some life into the league. Also I believe iron sharpens iron, so it will force us to the top of our game or changes would have to be made

    • Quinton Smith

      yup into yalls league….the ULTIMATE POWDER PUFF LEAGUE…..WAR DAMN EAGLE!

      • j l

        Pretty damn good powder puff league to have 2 top 10 teams, without the SEC bias adding +5 to what their rankings really should be.

        Try not too hard to lose to a middling ex big 12 team this weekend.

  • Rashad See

    Those two sources then are also stating that regardless as to what happens with the UT-Baylor game that Mack Brown is out at Texas? Although I believe that Nick Saban is a better coach then Mack Brown there will be those out there due to Saban’s persona that won’t agree with the mercenary approach especially if Mack wins/shares the conference championship. What happens when Saban does win a national title next year, what kind of pressure will he be under? Lest we all forget he didn’t come right into Alabama and start winning championships, in his first year they lost to Louisiana Monroe and went 6-6. How ill the burnt orange nation deal with a 6-6 season?

    • bjwalker82

      The Cupboard isn’t bare at UT. There will be no 6-6 season if he comes.

      • Rashad See

        Yeah but I believe there would have to be a culture change and normally with things like that it takes a year or two before the plan is in full effect. I believe that he would have to create some recruiting roots in Texas and unlike Alabama, kids in Texas have some options.

        • bjwalker82

          yeah true. I mean is what he does that schematically different from what UT is doing right now? Not to mention, I’ve got to imagine that most of Bama’s players come from out of state.

          • vargo05

            Bama actually has a ton of in-state kids. That state produces a lot of top talent every year and Saban has done a great job of keeping it home. Sure he has a lot of players from Georgia, Florida, and other states, but there are a ton of in-state kids on their roster and a lot are their top players such as Yeldon, McCarron, Christion Jones, Mosley, Howard, Sunseri, etc.

            As far as recruiting Texas, he’ll have no problem with that. It’s Texas. He’s Saban. He’s the best coach in the country and Texas is THE school in the state. The difference is he’ll be able to go outside the state lines more than Mack and Co do to get guys. He’s a better recruiter, coach, etc. than Mack. If you though Texas’ recruiting classes were highly-rated before, look out. He’ll get the top in-state guys that he wants and go outside the state after guys he wants.

            No of course. Very aware that Bama has plenty of talent. The SouthEast a general (for reasons we won’t go into here).

            Yes to the second paragraph. That’s what I’m afraid of.

          • Billy Jackson

            If anything, Saban can utilize his ties to the Southeast, where he’s had enormous success. But, he’ll still get the top talent from Texas, and will give Sumlin a run for his money. I do think you’ll start seeing different kinds of top level kids signing with Texas though.

            And, as much as it will put Bob on his “A” game, hopefully it will lead to the end of this terrible spread offense running through the league that always puts the Techmo Bowl music in my head when a completion is made.

      • Doc Longhorn

        Exactly. The Big 12 is not nearly as weak as the SEC, where two of the Big 12′s middle level teams came over to that over inflated conference and whipped butt.

  • Adrian

    He is probably trying to finish out the season with Alabama, All the reports all along pointed to this (his wife house shopping etc.) I hope this lights some fire in our staff!

    • Dale Sandy Higginbotham

      two straight classes like he has signed……..nobody would walk from those

      • Jeff Stewart

        $109 million reason. Take it from an LSU fan… Nick Saban has no loyalty

  • Drew Warner

    That would be wonderful! I agree with dahldennsull, the hiring of Saban to Texas would inject some life into our floundering league, and hopefully would restore the Red River Rivalry to the glory years we experienced in the early 2000′s, up to 2009, really. I hate Texas but college football is better, and it’s great for OU when Texas is really good. They are a wonderful villain, and Saban is a perfect fit for them. I feel like our program is heading in the right direction and we NEED Texas to be good to strengthen our national resume and perception. We always schedule at least one strong game out of conference, but with the losses of Nebraska, A&M and Missouri, our conference is perceived as weak, somewhat justifiably, even though I still believe it is a stronger conference than people think it is… Beating OSU, Tech, Baylor and a decent Texas doesn’t impress voters nationwide. Saban coming to Texas would be great for OU, I hope your right!

  • bjwalker82

    Ok here’s a simple question: When?

    • bjwalker82

      Fair Enough.

    • Sam Diamond

      This is not happening.

      It’s pure fiction.

      Their source is some Texas fan on some website who heard it in an Austin barbershop. Ya know.. it’s tight like that.

      • bjwalker82

        K so…obviously upset Alabama fan…why don’t you just wait for this thing to play itself out. Like that last second of that last game did…

        • AlexOU

          Or competing site editor that’s getting tired of being outside looking in.

      • Travis Coyle

        Funny how this post brought out all these people I have never seen on here before. Im sure you will apologize for your stupidity if you are wrong?

        • Sam Diamond

          Really funny how Texas Prez Bill Powers just made put this story to bed.

          I’ll wait for the retraction.

          I have a better chance of finding a unicorn, don’t I?

    • Super K

      We don’t know when it’s going to be announced. All we were told was it’s happening and there is going to be a big paycheck for Coach Saban.

  • Sam Diamond

    This story is going to end badly for you.

    It is not happening.

    Punch your two sources the next time you see them.

    • Travis Coyle

      This site is legit. Be gone with your negativity and punch yourself on the way out.

    • pickeroo

      Ahhh, poor little Sammie D, sounding all desperate and stuff. I hope the egomaniacal munchkin stays so Gus can whip his little ass for the next ten years.

    • Super K

      When we have two sources that we trust we’re going to report it every time. We are a free website and we will always be. And we all make a living doing other things. We tell our readers what we hear. If we are wrong we still be here and we will admit we we’re wrong. But, again we are going to report what we hear if the source is credible.

      • Tyler Thrower

        WE can tell you’re a free website because this is some of the worst journalism I’ve seen in quite sometime. I’d stick to your 9-5 which is in a factory.

        • Billy Jackson

          And if I were you, I’d consider some therapy, or perhaps maybe try behaving like an adult. That is, if you want anyone to take you seriously.

          Insulting someone like a little kid doesn’t really help your cause, man.

        • boomersooner

          neat story. write a book. i want a copy

      • Chuck Holden

        Your source?

        • boomersooner

          im confused. youre sayin the source is on the phone with obama or is obama?

  • Adrian

    I wonder if Kirby Smart gets his chance at Alabama now?

  • Kewan L Woodard

    Now that’s damn lie Nick Saban done said it before that he’s too damn old to start over anywhere else and sure as hell he’s not leaving Tuscaloosa !

    • CoachStauder

      Nick Saban has never lied before has he? He’ll say whatever is convenient at the time…kind of like his quote that a team that doesn’t win their conference doesn’t deserve to play for the national title; then his team didn’t even play for the SEC title and he said they deserved to be in the BCS championship. He’s a chameleon…

    • damon ledet

      Alabama sucks they are going need to find somebody good next year

  • TheSoonerNation

    I hope your right Karim. If you are correct you out scooped the entire nation on this story.

  • Dusty Carroll

    That’s right baby there’s a new king of football in Alabama and his name is Gus!!!!

    • Melanie Vosbury Ponder

      You wish!! Not true! Yall win the last 2 games with pure luck and all of a sudden auburn thinks theyve earned the bragging rights to haveva coach as good as saban, when youve won 3 national titles in a row then maybe we will take that seriously, but it wasnt too hard to have a better season than last year with the crappy coachbyall had and loosing just about every game, nicevtry though! Lol

      • Tom Jude Byrne

        Alabama won three in a row?

        • Michael Tucker

          no, we won 1 then auburn won the national championship then we won the next 2 and we were on our way to 3 in a row but auburn stepped up and beat us again lol ahhh the frustration :) lol

          • Tom Jude Byrne

            that is what I thought I thought it was a great game…. both sides poured out everything on the field both teams in the game until ….. well it was more than 60 minutes played with no OT… friggin amazing that was two teams at the top of their game…. sure mistakes were made but character was won on both sides. It was a great win and hard fought …. I would pay to see it again!

        • Melanie Vosbury Ponder

          Should of won 3 in a row but we didn’t play our best, sad part is that was yalls best that day and you know yall were scared your oen players had looks of disbelief on their faces bc they couldn’t believe they actually won

          • Tom Jude Byrne

            Both teams made mistakes but there was never fear in our eyes, only disbelief in the fact that your team was not as prepared to win. you were playing not to lose ….. there is a big difference. The shock was on their faces after the game was because we scored off your field goal and did not go into overtime! How many more excuses are you going to make before you can live with this? we were not prepared, Auburn was lucky, Nick had a hangover nick is going to texas, Football is a game of stats ….. believe it or not these two teams were evenly matched as the score and the game indicates it was who had the ball at the end of the game! but what ever it takes to make you sleep at night!

        • Debbie Coleman Stevens

          Yeah “3″ National Championships in 4 years no math needed for this just Facts. Of Course we all know that it’s much easier to keep up with Auburn’s National Championships and Crystal Footballs… most preschoolers can at least count to “1″!! When Auburn has as many National Championships as Alabama does Then come back and put us down and it Might be Justified…. until then enjoy your 1 Championship, 1 Crystal ball and 1 Win over Bama…. Not difficult to count any of those numbers, huh….

          • Nathaniel Bee

            Auburn has actually won 2 national championships – but way to look like a dumbass, Debbie. Like a true bammer. Roll Tide. I shouldn’t be so rude… you probably never made it to college did you hun? “Baby you a song – make my wanna roll my windows down and CRUISE” Laugh.

          • Debbie Coleman Stevens

            You’re the one who is showing your ignorants Auburn has won 1 in 2011 they SHARE the other one you call a WIN way back in 1957!!! You are correct You shouldn’t be So Rude when I simply stated Facts! I Never personally attacked you! But just to put your mind at ease, yes, I have a college degree and yes, I can spell and type which is certainly more than I can say for your post, bless your heart!

          • Nathaniel Bee

            Ignorance*

            False. Perhaps you need to look it up. It’s in the history books for your viewing.

          • Pamela Trammell

            Yeah, we got a second….and a third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth, fourteenth, & fifteenth. Alabama Polytech Institute (1957) 1, Auburn University (2010) 2. Look that up when you “get a second”.

In stead of what is going on in Tuscaloosa, because if your not a bama fan its none of your damned business what is going on anyway, keep up with Gus instead of saban, Because from what I hear Gus has applie for the texas job himself, Now take that and run with it!

          • James

            Learn your history, Auburn has been awarded 16 national titles since 1900 the school only recognizes two. Unlike Alabama who claims all the pre-BCS voting stuff as championships.

          • ironoxide

            James, before you tell others to learn their history do a little more research. As per the NCAA’s recognized championships it’s Alabama 13 and Auburn 2. Alabama only claims 2 that aren’t recognized by the NCAA 1934 and 1941. http://www.ncaa.com/history/football/fbs

        • Melanie Vosbury Ponder

          Wow and how many have auburn won? Lol hilarious! War damn miracle! Bahaha, I know your just over excited bc you dont know what it really feels like to cheer for a winning team, its all new to yall auburn fans

          • Jeff Stewart

            Three in a row…. READ THIS SLOWLY… THREE IN A ROW. Have you won Three in a row… No… But you are the Entitled and have already counted this year as a victory… If you cant read this let an Auburn fan read it to you. Three in a row. Are we clear here?

          Well when Alabama wins 3 National Championships in a row we will have this conversation big fan cant even get the history right… and what luck Chris Davis was highlighted as a danger in the Special Teams before the game kicked off. Nick Saban saw him back there waiting for a missed kick and he did what hes done ALL YEAR make a good return need a second to ponder on that go ahead we’ll be in Atlanta while your thinking…3 NC in a row hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!

      • Guest

        2009-Ala; 2010-AU; 2011-Ala; 2012-Ala; 2013-not played yet. From the information I’ve posted, you will see, if you can bring yourself to follow, Melanie, that Alabama has won TWO IN A ROW. So, I guess, going by your statement, when Bama wins three in a row, we’ll take them seriously, as well.

        • ironoxide

          By the same token Alabama has won two in a row 4 times through its history; whereas Auburn has won a total of two. For the record I’m only counting NCAA recognized number 1 rankings.

    • CC

      Gus is not king..you have 1 good player on your team..suck up the fact that Auburn will NEVER be able to boast as many championships as Bama..we are the best team!

      • Melanie Vosbury Ponder

        Gus doesn’t come close to being half the coach saban is, auburn is just so jealous of what bama has they wanna actvlike hes the king of something. They beat Alabama bc we didn’t play our best game and they really feel like they have acomplished something! Too funny

        • melissap

          You do realize there are other teams that have won just as many championships right? I have always wondered how students think its ok to raise tuition rates on students just so the coach of a danged game can get paid millions. And doesnt even play….

          • ironoxide

            No team can claim as many as Alabama since the AP polls were started. Alabama and Notre Dame were tied in the category until last years title game was played. Further, there are more expensive coaching staffs in the national; but regardless UA didn’t raise tuition to pay a football coach. The football program is a donor program to the University not the other way around.

      • John

        You people (AL fans) have amnesia of some kind I think, wasn’t it only a few years ago that you guys were mediocre and going through coaches like toilet paper? Since you all have hired Saban, this crap about “The greatest team” etc. etc. just keeps coming out of your pie holes. And you wonder why when Auburn beat you (running the same play over and over and over again), people all over the USA were tickled to death and posting stuff like “A loss for Alabama is a win for America”. It’s because 99% of the ENTIRE country is sick of you delusional Alabama fans that don’t know when to STFU…Can I get an Amen?

        • boomersooner

          amen…however i will add that espn has given 99% of the opportunities to the whole conference. kudos, tho, for winning once given said opportunities

        • Kathy Treherne Clark

          You can’t deny the history Alabama football has. We are proud of the accomplishments of our teams throughout history. Every team, no matter how good, has off seasons and off games. I can understand why people from other programs get tired of any one team winning all the time, but it happens, and that team will inevitably lose at some point. It is ridiculous to hate a program because they are good and well coached. And, by the way, if Auburn had won 3 of the last 4 National Championships, would you even be having this conversation? Talk about obnoxious fans.

          • lmcpark

            Bama plays many games against great teams and sometimes pulls off miracle plays. Auburn does it once and all of a sudden their coach and one player are miracle workers and they are going to beat Bama every year and all of the Nationsl Championships. Give me a break

      Dream on… 1 win doesn’t make you king of anything!! 1 National Championship, 1 Crystal football and 1 win against Alabama versus How many National Championships that Alabama has and How many Crystal Footballs??? Your Win is just that a Win nothing more or less beside Luck!!

    • Roger Jacoby

      One fluke game does not a king make, Turd Ferguson! BAMA is still king! One loss doesn’t dethrone. Your little high school coach & offense got lucky. Heck, even a blind squirrel gets a nut every now & then. Enjoy your nut! You won’t get many! RTR!!!!

  • Frank Creech

    LOL! He has the best job in CFB, has a dynamite class coming and is 63 YO. And hates the idea of playing these spread offenses. I can just see him facing 12 spread hurry up games in a row with the officials and rules favoring such in an outlier B12 location like Ames on Thursday night while Bama is on coast to coast and overseas facing LSU in another game of the decade. He would kill himself! He’s not stepping down and he will get whatever he wants where he is. He may do something else soon but stepping down to a 2nd rate conference, in a psychotic situation where it would take him years to even approach where he is already so he can fight the regents, Brown’s lawyer, Dodds is still around, and probably never have as good a team as he already has? Yeah that sounds like something he would do. Mercy…..

    • PanzerDSS

      Nobody shoots a fellow Longhorn when Texas loses. Advantage: Texas.

    • Randy Chitwood

      To clarify, Dodds is the FORMER Athletic Director, and he had a retirement party and moved out of his office a couple of weeks ago. Steve Patterson is Mack’s boss now. Brown will announce his retirement in short order.

      By the way, this is not a “oh no he isn’t” post…just an interesting coincidence that he was throwing his best pitch at a kid using a heli on the same day you guys announce this. I have no clue if he is or isn’t. If he is, nice work.

    • JD

  • SoonerSource

    If this turns out to be true, I’d be willing to bet Saban has some stipulations in his contract limiting his media commitments. I don’t see him 5 or 10 hours of LHN stuff every week.

  • Michael Tucker

    Interesting opinion, would you care to cite your sources? Also, I don’t see this happening without the University of Alabama and even the Mayor of Tuscaloosa making a counter offer significantly greater than Texas would ever dare.

    College football is everything in Alabama, whether it’s the Crimson Tide or Auburn. Fans here have no professional anything. College football is our professional sport and it’s lived year round here, even during the off season people follow recruiting and still focus and talk about college football. Would Saban really step down out of his throne of glory to go to Texas, where college football is merely just another sport? Maybe, maybe not. Either way, Alabama is Alabama and we will continue to be successful with or without Nick Saban. Now I’m not saying I don’t like Saban because I do, but I think Kirby Smart can and would get the job done as head coach if Saban were to leave. Roll Tide.

    • CoachStauder

      And Alabama still doesn’t generate more money than Texas…guess you either need to find more people to breathe college football or get a reality check that regardless of culture, Texas somehow is a larger corporation (that’s what the football programs are now right?).

      • Michael Tucker

        Bill Battles – Battle Plan http://www.rolltide.com/genrel/the-battle-plan.html

        Our Crimson Tide teams have won 12 games in a season seven times in our
        history – including four times in the last five seasons. For some
        perspective on that achievement, consider that since 1944 it has
        happened less than 60 times nationally prior to this season at all
        levels of college football. So, Crimson Tide teams have accounted for
        roughly 20 percent of those 12-win seasons overall. Our recent success
        is further proof that we are truly living in a golden age of Alabama
        football. We cannot lose sight of that.

        • CoachStauder

          This is a completely different point…guess you realized your last one didn’t check out?

        • Lesslie Stanford

          Just a thought you are on a Oklahoma website talking about records like that. Oklahoma has 6 12 win seasons since 2000. Has the most 10+(32) and 11+(20) win seasons in all of college football. As well as has the fewest losing season (12). As well as has 4 coaches with atleast 100 wins. And we know that Texas is a better job than Oklahoma.

          • Michael Tucker

            uhm that was a copy and paste of the University of Alabama’s Athletic Director, Bill Battle. Sorry for your confusion. Next time take a breath before you respond.

        • Don Wilson

          Oh please Alabama has had the easiest pussy schedules the last 4 yes 4 seasons! And there are plenty of numbers to prove that.Not to mention “we can’t win our division but we still deserve to play for the title” 2 years ago. Don’t even get me started on the MYTHICAL 15…most if them are self proclaimed and Crap. Its FUNNY y’all can’t figure out what to do..Ya got beat and sorry think Little Nikki has used up all his bag of tricks and favors to weasel his way into the big game thus year!

        Bama spends about 15 million more a year on football then Texas

        • ghamilton

          Tim, your a moron.

      • matt

        First off I don’t see this true and I am a huge Texas fan. And to think football is just another sport in Texas is foolish. This state lives and breathes football. Look how many NFL STARTERS played their high school football in Texas. There are 10 starting quaterbacks alone. And read any publication that knows football and everyone single one of them has the university of Texas as the #1job to have. Alabama can’t match the money if they actually offer it. I don’t see Saban coming to Austin but it won’t be because Bama out bid them. Do some legitimate research and look at which athletic departments have moreoney.

    • AlexOU

      Not doubting perspective on football in Bama, but you are obviously clueless about football in Texas. Professional or not, how does that explain Texas HS football? You need to study a bit more on the subject before preaching.

    • stoneyburk

      Maybe Saban wants to live in a city that is a little more cosmopolitan.Maybe a state that isn’t NASCAR centered

    • ghamilton

      Did you say Alabama will outbid Texas? You probably weren’t aware that Texas generates more revenue than any school in the country. Y’all can try begging coach Saban to stay, but you won’t outbid Texas.

    • boomersooner

      i have a tremendous amount of respect for the great history of bama football, just like i do for the yankees. i loathe bama and the yankees, tho…you dont care, i get it. you guys(sec’ers) have done well with the opportunities youve been given. youve won the titles. espn set you guys up. we get it. what i want is a college football that has no media bias, has no these guys will make me more money if we show them on our stations. i want on the field gets you there and on the field settles it. INTEGRITY…i wanna see it from these panel members startin next yr

  • TeaTown Cowboy

    Maybe….if they pony up 10 million beans per season.

    • Michael Tucker

      I don’t really see why they wouldn’t, the man is THE celebrity in Alabama. He’s being compared to the legendary Bear Bryant, and he already has a statue outside of the stadium in Tuscaloosa. Would he really leave and screw up his chance at a possible Nick Saban Museum and actually making it to the Bears legendary status and/or surpassing it? Hmmm.

      • Gregor

        There is no doubt that Saban is at the top of the mountain right now, but the trick is always to move on before that changes. I think you are starting to see the chinks in the SEC/Alabama armor. He has obviously made a career of moving onto big challenges with a good opportunity to succeed. The Dolphins ended up not being his cup of tea, but he is a true college coach. texas is the El Dorado of coaching jobs. It is the flagship program for the most football crazy state in the union. They have more talent year in and year out than anyone else. If they just pay him half of what they are guaranteed to make yearly from the longhorn network that will be twice what anyone else is making right now. And believe me, if he does for texas what he did for Bama he won’t only have a statue. Saban, Texas will be the new name of the capital of Texas. Not a fan of texas, I have respect for Saban, but exactly a cheerleader for him either. Put those two together and something tells me they both go down in moneumental flames and the only ones that win will be the other Big XII schools.

      • TeaTown Cowboy

        10 million beans though. ;)

  • Gump News

    Seen too many of these “trusted sources” stories go down like a lead hooker on a traveling salesman. When Steve Patterson steps up to the microphone at a press conference where Saban is standing in the background… THEN I will believe.

  • Ricky Aldridge

    Time will tell, but it would almost be a step down for him to come to Texas…at this time especially. The SEC is dominating. There has to be some underlying situations we don’t know about if he is leaving. Money can’t be why. He can get all he wants from the bammers.

    • Doc Longhorn

      Oh, please. Texas has historically owned the SEC and Alabama in
      particular. And don’t even ask about collieville and the goobers that
      occupy that pitiful little village.27-25 FOREVER!

    • Nathaniel Bee

      Dude. It’s ALL about money. Why do you think Saban is at Alabama in the first place? You think he actually LIKES living in a community where the average number of teeth AND eyes is 3? I think not. He may be an angry man, but not an incestuous man… Sorry. If Texas offers him 40M he’s gone, Bama. But Hey, look on the bright side.. I hear Lane Kiffin is looking to destroy another successful football program.

  • Jim Daeng Ostrander

    An Oklahoma publication sending this out? Yeah I doubt it. April fools on Texas?

  • Drew Warner

    ESPN Texas/BIg 12 Blogger Max Olson mocks your prediction:

  • AlexOU

    The savviest of business people sell company at height. How much higher can Saban go? He’s topped out.
    I don’t believe it’s about money at all, more like tired of the monster he’s created. At UT, he’s a hero again, worshiped, rather than people freaking out because he lost 1-game. Probably tired of the chest beating, fan shooting, nut sack in face…..monster. Time to let Frankenstein be captured & killed.

  • David Adkins

    I heard myself on a live interview Miss Terry ‘s not happy. And Coach Saban has not been seen or heard from him since the Iron Bowl . She said that the Alabama Folks have put Nick on the spot because they want Un-Defeated Teams Every Year And They Want National Championships every year, ” Miss Terry said ” They Have Got Spoiled ” and what happens when they don’t get things their way. The Negative will make up the Saban’s minds for them. Miss Terry may be in Austin Right now setting this up. But these are the words of the Coach’s Wife. And Her Voice Goes A Long Way. We Will Have To Watch and Wait For The Next Shoe to Drop. His Contract ” Does Not Have A Clause That He Can’t Leave Without Notice “. So He Could Leave During The Night On His Private Jet And Be On His Way To His New Job And Alabama Get A Phone Call Saying ” He’s The New Head Coach At Texas.” And Which Asst. Coaches Will He Invite To Come With Him? He’s Done This Before.He’s Done All He Can Do At Alabama, And He Likes A Challenge , Texas Would Be That New Challenge For Him ” The Only Head Coach To Win National Championships At LSU, Alabama , And Texas.” That Would Make Him The Greatest Head Coach Of All Times. Oh, And That Would Be A Record Only He Would Have Set For Himself .And The NCAA , No One Has Every Done It Yet. Do You Think It’s On His Mind . We’ll See.

  • CoachStauder

    Regardless of outcome, this thread has attracted plenty of jealous Auburn fans and lots of pissy ‘reporters’ that are more fanboy than anything. It’s been a good read! haha!

    • scarshapedstar

      Don’t you mean pissy Alabama fans…?

      • CoachStauder

        You can add them as #3 on the list…

  • bjwalker82

    So funny to read all the complaints on this site and on twitter. The arguments don’t hold water.
    1. The page views argument. Why would this site need page views? It’s for OU fans who are into the football team, it’s a niche site. As you can see there are no ads.
    2. Followers on twitter argument. Brainiacs isn’t making a living breaking national college football news. They are giving a different perspective on OU recruits (and other recruits).

    So please craft me a motivation for them fabricating a story. Also everyone, when this story is proven true or false please let @SabanSays know how you feel. Thanks!

  • Jakerb25

    I’m skeptical of all this. But when you think about it, Saban has never been the type to have allegiance to any team. He left LSU a national champion with top recruiting for more money. He left Miami for more money. Texas has more money than any football program. The state of Texas has by far more talented recruits than any other state. And than you also have to compare living in Austin and living in Tuscaloosa.

  • John Morgan

    Ms Terry wears the pants in Nick’s house. I have heard him say that as well as her. Last week she stated that they were happy in Tuscaloosa, and had no plans to leave. I think everybody that’s not an Alabama fan would like him to leave. Wishful thinking!!!

  • AlexOU

    This has become an extension of the Bama boards meltdown after loss. Kudos brainiacs ;)

  • Cletus T

    I am an Auburn Grad. Class of 95′ . This is the dumbest story that i have ever read. Heck this isnt even a story. This is a rumor. Why would Texas want his Tired ass old man boring football at Texas? If anything Texas is gonna come after Gus Malzahn. Bama is finally collapsing under the weight of the program and Saban isnt gonna just leave because of money. He has all these idiots in Alabama falling right in line. He aint leaving. Texas is gonna come after Gus and i just hope Auburn is willing to beat any offer they make him. Gus could own Auburn . Heck he already does. This site is the worst piece of crap i have ever seen. I thought that my website for my company(that i built) was the most elementary thing i have ever seen. But this is nothing more than some blog crap with terrible graphics…I hate Alabama but Saban lost one game..He aint goin and whoever wrote this article(and i use the term loosely) is not even kin to a journalist. War Eagle. Brainiacs? far from it.

    • Billy Jackson

      Hmmm….I agree that you have a fine coach in Malzahn, and I believe he’ll be there for a long time. Auburn gets great recruits and now has a coach that can make them formidable for years to come.

      That being said, I’m not sure what insulting people that do not charge for anyone to read or write their thoughts does for you other than make you seem kind of small.

      I do not know these men personally, but I am a huge Ryan Broyles fan. In addition, I enjoy reading these former college football players’ information about offensive and defensive schemes that is extremely interesting and gives me a better appreciation about what goes on in the trenches other than just yelling about the head coach doing or not doing this or that.

      So anyway, should you happen to read what these guys have repeatedly stated, which has been simply reporting (according to these guys) two very credible sources, I’m not sure what the big deal is. This story could end up being completely off, but I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t be bringing it up if they didn’t feel there was a very strong possibility their sources were accurate.

      So, thanks for the visit, and I’m sorry you feel insulting people brings you a higher quality of life.

      Good luck to you,

    • boomersooner

      so you say “bama is finally collapsing under the weight of the program” and then say “but saban lost one game.” which is it? you sec, sec’ers have “earned” your titles, meaning you won em when you got there, but espn put you there for the most part. and no matter what you think or say about anybody, just remember that Jesus loves you

  • Tyler Thrower

    Whoever wrote this sounds like a very smart person. You write like you’re educated to the max.

    • CoachStauder

      Have you read your own posts? Pissy Bama fan spouting off childish things and you have the nerve to question other people’s intelligence? Brilliant.

      • Nathaniel Bee

        Don’t listen to this crazy kid. He’s one of “those” bammers. The ones that take pictures with their girlfriends.. that also happen to be their sisters.

  • Cletus T

    BTW …Bama fans are the stupidest people in the world. Only fanbase that would celebrate a dude that poisoned Auburn trees and that other guy that put his nuts on that drunk LSU dude in Krystal…If Saban told them all to bend over they would. Bama grads not stupid , just the fans that dont even know where Tuscaloosa is. I hate the sidewalk fan, they should root for Troy. Thats where they all go to college anyway(if they go to college)

    • Tyler Thrower

      Show us where we celebrated that idiot for doing that……you sound very ignorant right now Cletus.

      • JerkyMiester

        No matter how hard we try. You can’t have a dialog with fungus.

      • Cletus T

        i know plenty of bama “fans” that joke about the trees all the time..Not Bama grads ..just the stupid sidewalk fans..Grads of Bama call them the 85 percent. And as far as that teabag incident..did u see all the drunk bama fans lining up right behind to get their turn..I hate Bama , I hate the school , i hate the fans. I wish them nothing but Blight. One day they will get theirs. Tyler u know u want to put ur nuts on a LSU fans face..Yall live for it.

        • JerkyMiester

          Tyler… don’t you feel special that you’ve been called a “sidewalk” fan? Gives me goosebumps to know that I’m so special and I am in awe that every Barner fan has a degree from Awbum University. Like Cletus here, he is the pride of Awbum Fambily! I know that this briliant specimen was on the 50 yard line after the miracle win having sex with every one of his cousins and even his granny.

        • Tyler Thrower

          That’s pretty obvious you hate them but then again who the cares about your opinion? I can assure you no one does….NO….ONE…..DOES.

    • Mandy

      I’m not going to deny the stupidity of the tree or the Krystal incident but are you that naive to think that Alabama is the only college that has stupid fans? Sounds to me like you’re the one being stupid….BTW what’s the definition of a sidewalk fan because I have walked that sidewalk into that stadium for over 12 years.

  • Tom Jude Byrne

    Nick has done more for the STATE than we realize….. It put AL back in to competing for National Championship and actually helped Auburn win one. He was the catalyst for Auburn getting over the hump, we had to beat AL and both teams got better because of the competition…… Now Auburn could be on its way to another one in 2 years…. He has done a lot for both programs, Where else can a team ranked 45th in August turn around and beat the #1 team and move up to the current #3 position, except in Alabama. It makes me proud to be from this Great State of Alabama,

  • Sherri Silas

    Well if Saban doesn’t go, guess Gus will have a shot of his “dream” job…. to coach at Texas.

  • JD

    WOW 123..er 124 comments now…nice work guys!

  • JerkyMiester

    Judging from the last sentence you really don’t have a phuckin clue what’s up. Nothing like having another idiodic football blog to stir the chitpot. Oh and you might want to give Forbes a better credit than “Image from Forbes” Copyrighted magazine covers should be properly credited like the date and issue of that publication.

    • Tyler Thrower

      Yeah..you like this masterpiece? It’s almost comical…

    • bjwalker82

      Bama fans everyone! Here to show their class. Thanks for stopping in.

      Round of applause.

      • JerkyMiester

        Who said they were all Bama fans? Looks like to me most of these could be your cousins from from mother’s daddy’s uncle having sex with the livestock, BJ Bumphuck.

        • Nathaniel Bee

          BJ’s cousins are Bama fans…

  • Nick Swope

    Yesterday or the day before I heard from a friend that works closely with the football team that Saban was coming to Texas today to finalize a deal and Mack Brown is announcing his retirement on Sunday. I dismissed it as bullshit at first, but this article came out today and is completely consistent with everything he said. I think this might be legit.

    • JerkyMiester

      So tell us, Nick. What does your freind do at Texas? Wash the livestock’s genetalia? Bullshit seems to be the operative word of the day. Jezzz!

      • Nick Swope

        I’m not going to specify his exact position because I don’t want anything to come back and bite him without his permission, but I will say he works for the football team on a daily basis. He also said UTPD had a “high security vistor report” or something along those lines filed. Y’all can choose to believe what y’all want. I don’t really care.

    • Nick Swope

      I just contacted another person who I thought might have inside knowledge and he also confirmed all of this. This is 100% real. I know some random guy on the internet isn’t going to change your mind, but I will go on record saying that these rumors are true. Nick Saban has finalized a deal to be the coach of the Texas Longhorns. Comment whatever rude things you want now, but you’re going to look like a fool very soon. If I had two friends lie to me, in addition to the author of this article’s two friends lying to him, then I’ll apologize and y’all can burn me at the stake. Hook ‘Em.

  • disqus_eEUmz0ONaX

    My guess these 2 “GOOD” sources would be 1 LSU fan and 1 Dolphins fan.

  • Mandy

    If Saban is leaving the University of Alabama will find someone to replace him. Trust me he’s made them more money than they have paid him. As a Tide fan I wish him well. I am not going to be angry or bitter about him leaving. He turned our program around and did a lot of good for Tuscaloosa. #RTR

    • Nathaniel Bee

      Finally, a Bama fan with some sense. You are one in a million, Mandy. #cheersmate

      • ironoxide

        Oddly, most Bama fans I know have said the same thing. Even on this site, they may state he’s not going; however, they’ve said very little about being mad at him if he did. Upset yes, but very glad that he brought the program back to this spot.

  • CC

    Nick is not going to Texas…his children graduated from Bama..he has grandchildren there…stop spreading the lies and they are LIES!

    Wow. This article touched a nerve. haha…Oh well. As the saying goes, there is no such thing as bad publicity. Your website just got a pretty good boost in public exposure at least. I trust you guys and much appreciate your efforts whether it turns out right on or not. “In the end”, (as coach loves to say) there is nothing sure in life but death. The in between is all relative to perspective.

  • Chad Bosarge

    I guess the 1yr wonder Auburn fans for got about the other king they had who won them a national title! What happened to him? At least next year Auburn might have chance to win 7 games. Do it back-to-back and have chance at a third title then enter the discussion!

    • Nathaniel Bee

      Well, there isn’t a discussion if there is only one fan-base in it.. now is there, Chad?

    • Mandy

      Doesn’t make sense that someone would call Gus a king when he hasn’t even played for a National championship at Auburn. I will give Auburn credit they did knock off the #1 team in the country but there’s still some more football that needs to be played this season and we all know that anything can happen just ask any AU fan about the Georgia or Bama games:) When Gus’ “bus” has entered 3 championship games in four years then by all means call him king but until then I would stick with Gus.

    Thanks Nick for all you do and have done for Alabama Football :)

  • Justin

    Look here….I dont believe your sources….but Ill tell you this…DONT DARE BELIEVE SABAN IS LOYAL TO ANY ONE TEAM!! Take it from LSU. He came in…created the TAF with Skip Bertman and left for money. He turned around LSUs program then did the same in Alabama. Dude has swag in the SEC. But think about this…if you wanted to go down as the Best College Football coach of all time, wouldnt it make since to jump out of the SEC and go to a conference where he could turn around a team and make them a true SEC type team in a conference that the team will walk up and down on the competition? Then he would be in the National Championship game EVERY YEAR! Plus more money. Take LSU or Bama out of the SEC and put them in the BIG 10 and they will go undefeated every year. Look at Oregon. Thats what they do. Or Ohio State. Any one of those teams come to SEC and they would be a 2 or 3 loss team. If that!! Saban will follow the money and any chance to go down in the record books as the best ever. And as far as loyalty….when he lost to Southern Miss like his first or second year at Alabama he bashed the whole team and State saying yall were horrible and not real football players. He also left LSU cause he got caught cheating on his wife but thats neither here nor there. He would be stupid not to go or at least think about leaving.

  • Justin

    PS…..AJ McCarron Sux. He wont do anything in the NFL. Probably ride the bench then get cut 3 years later. He is good for Alabama. But thats the end of him.

  • Albert Borjon

    I think it’s true and mainly because of Mrs. Saban… Think about it, she bought a huge house here in Austin a couple of months ago, then she goes on record saying that Alabama fans can be so spoiled and un appreciative at times. Plus she can make Millions selling properties in a city that hasn’t really seen a recession and is one of the fastest growing. As a Longhorn fan, ima so glad she wears the pants in the HOUSE!

    • Josh

      Bama fans are spoiled an unappreciative?? I wonder what she’ll think of longhorn fans?

      • PJ Schwackhammer

        She’ll find them to be spoiled and unappreciative… but not certifiably insane and completely stupid.

  • RTR

    I believe Nick Saban will retire before he goes somewhere else to coach other than Alabama.

  • Charles Hollier

    If Nick Saban says he’s not going anywhere watch out. We LSU fans were once told that and you see how that worked out for us. If it actually does happen not only will LSU fans hate him so will BAMA fans. The most despised coach in college football. I find the rumor hard to believe.

  • Valeria W.

    Yall are just jealous cause he is NOT your football coach. There have been rumors for years about him going to Texas. Until Saban comes out on live tv in a news confrence. Then I will believe it. Until then football brainiacs worry about your own team!

  • Tyler Gowens

    Oh wow saban is making a bad mistake by going to texas and i doubt be good next year.

  • Ken Orton

    why would texas replace one old fart with another. hard to believe.

  • Nick

    hahah Saban will be hated in Alabama as well as Louisiana.. Bama we know how it feels!!

  • defuser143

    Coach Saban is NOT going to TX. You guys really get paid to write this crap? I don’t get paid to write idiotic garbage and post it for the world to read and all I had to do was make a phone call and got the answer I need. I can’t believe u make money doing thigs like this…..nevermind, yes I can……

    • GB

      So why was Saban in Austin this week?

      • defuser143

        Did you see him with your own 2 eyes? I been to NY 2 times, I guess i’m gonna be the next coach of the NY Yankees…….please…….

        • GB

          Everybody has their sources. I don’t live in Austin but I guess if I’m a coach who visits the city of a team with rumors going around about him becoming the next head coach, then he probably is just there for the food. Do some research and look around. There are more reasons for Saban to come to TX rather than stay at Alabama

  • RTR

    It sure would be nice if we got a rematch with Auburn in a bowl game before Saban left, if this happens to be true. I will say he wasn’t the same Saban i’m used to watching the other night against Auburn, he seemed a lot calmer or just different than usual to me.

    So what’s the diference in a 4 year old bama fan and a 100 year old auburn fan….. a 4 year old bama fan has sceen more national championships….roll tide till I’m dead n died….. don’t sleep on mizzo..or no sugar….burn… saban isn’t going to leave….he has built an army..with all his soldiers. ..he might lose 1 out of 12 battles but apperantly he wins the war….15nc’s….!

    • wareagle4life

      Couple of clarifications to your post, I think you meant BCS championships and if so you are correct, BCS hasn’t been around for 100 years so kind of irrelevan point, however, if you are referring to Championships in general that way bama counts them, Auburn actually has 9, we actually count them the way most teams do and so we don’t count everyone just because some random poll votes us #1. So an Auburn fan who has been around for 100 year actually has more Championships based on Alabama math than a bama fan has in 4 years. However, if making this statement makes you feel better after last Saturday or makse you feel better thinking saban might be going to Texas, don’t let me rain on your parade. One thing to keep in mind, for as great as saban might be, he is only 6 – 6 lifetime against Auburn, 4 – 3 at bama and 2 – 3 at LSU. However, interesting stat, when coaching against an Auburn team that has 9 or more wins in a season, he is 0 – 6. So doesn’t bother me as an Auburn fan or many Aubrurn fans I know for him to say, as long as we are winning, there is a 12 year history that we will beat him. War Eagle! ;)

  • NA

    WRONG! These boneheads “who actually played college football” must’ve suffered one too many concussions. This is total BS flame bait. Do your homework Okies! Then learn how journalism works. Then give it up and become a used car salesman.

  • GB

    Why would Saban not come to Texas? He would make so much more money outside of football by being in TX. Plus, why would you rather live in Alabama than TX?? UT will offer him a massive chunk to spend on coaching staff as well. In terms of him still recruiting that doesn’t mean squat until those players actually sign the dotted line.

  • Michael Smith

    I love this two people that will not be named said that Nick was leaving. Well I have 104 1/2 sources that say Urban is going back to Florida, Nick is going Back to Miami, Lou is going back to ND, and these Idiots that have absolutely no creditability will get a pass when nothing happens and nick is back next year.

  • William Daniel Porter

    In all reality Coach Saban has started a fire underneath Alabama’s program. If he leaves tomorrow I have complete confidence we will continue our recent success. I tip my hat to Auburn and Malzahn. What he’s been able to do in a year deserves coach of the year for sure. To the people that actually follow NCAA football knows Alabama has transformed into a national threat. Yall might not like us (Bama’s team), but to deny that success is kinda nuts. I’ve got mad respect for Coach Saban and how he’s brought us out of a two decade fall from grace. Would hate to see him leave, but would embrace the change. Every powerhouse have had to start back over at some point. Good luck this weekend AU!! Coming from a die hard Baja fan. RMFT

      William, one of the best post from a Bama fan I’ve seen. No one really knows that Saban is going to do but he and his wife. We could all come up with a 100 reasons why he would not leave and 100 reason whey he might. Either way I agree with you, Bama will still be strong, just need to make the right decision on the new coach. As an Auburn fan, part of me loves to see bama lose and would love to see us win every year, but in reality, it’s best for both programs when we are both strong and the eyes of the nation are watching the Iron Bowl. This also means no team wins every year. I would personally love to see us both come in undefeated every year playing to go to the SEC Championship and chance for a BCS Championship. We win our share an you win yours, that’s what would make the Iron Bowl really special year in and year out and nationally relevant. To do that we both need top coaches and programs so I’m happy if Saban stays or you bring in another coach. Just want to make sure we continue to improve and do our part to make all the future Iron Bowls as relevant and special as this year. Much more exciting to beat at top 5 team than a struggling team. Here’s to many more classic Iron Bowls in the future!!!

    Hahaha this article. Hilarious.

  • Jack Harea

    No way…no how! So just STFU losers! UT has a great coach and he will be back next year!

  • PB

    These guys either have elevated their brand name to a very respectable height by being one of the first to “know” and write an article about it…or they have squashed any chance of being something other than a blog that writes about anything. Definitely an “All In” move here. TBD.

  • Ronnie Sparks

    These writers crack me up ! lol All they like to do is stir crap and post BS that they know NOTHING about. I’m guessing ” The Brainiacs ” think Elvis was an alien and simple faked his death so he could go back home to UR ANUS ! LMAO
    On another note, I think the National Enquirer might be hiring more reporters so I’m sure these guys wont be out of work any time soon :D

  • John Jakubik

    Let me tell you how sites like this operate. They take a handful of #### and sling it against the wall. They hope it makes a name for them if by chance some of it sticks. If it doesn’t they just claim that circumstances changed and things went another direction. Happens daily. Saban isn’t going anywhere, not sure who Texas is targeting after Mack retires at the end of 2014 but there in lies the truth.

  • Samuel Burke

    NO he will not step foot on my soil. We dont want him and dont need him. He has no tradition or heart for any team he coaches. Texas is about Heart and Soul which Saban has niether of. If DKR were still alive this would not be an issue.

    • PB

      DKR was a great coach, but had a lot of help during an era when there were unlimited scholarships ut could throw at kids. Kind of a nice perk to have that today’s coaches do not have the luxury of having.
      And if ut was about heart and soul, their stadium would not be a ghost town every time they’re getting blown out. Win or lose, the fans should be there until the end.

  • Samuel Burke

    Alabama spelled backwards is Amabala(Amab-Ala) which is the name of a anti american terrorist group out to ruin football in the US so we all go crazy and massive riots will tear us apart. PLEASE dont let Saban(a terrorist) come to Texas as he is on the inside of the whole group.

    Looks like Ole Miss will finally have that victory against Nick Sabin

  • Clettus T. Judd

    bama’s shields are down. Mark Emmert and Derrick Crawford have advised Nick and Mizz Terry to get out while the gettin’s good. They have recently told the local media how undue expectations have created unwanted pressure and she definitely shopped real estate in Austin for ” A vacation home “. She’s been doing all the talking lately so he won’t have to lie (as much). Stevie Wonder can see the signs and my NCAA insider is, unlike Danny Sheridan’s, real.

    I mean, you did run this. You’re clearly not real journalists. “Sources” my ass. What “source” would talk The Football Brainiacs? You guys got Ari Emanuel on speed dial?

    • Jack Knott

      #sources.

  • disqus_b4wVAolbKm

    EVERY legitimate source of news disagrees with your sources. i hope you took a lot of pictures and made the most of your one day of undeserved relevance.

    you guys do science a favor and when the depression becomes too much, man up and preserve your “football brains” by pointing the gun at your heart.

  • Sam Diamond

    Well, I wonder know that Texas’ President Bill Powers has gone on record and destroyed “Saban-to-Texas” rumors—-will you guys finally admit you were wrong?

    Google if your friend here.

    Google, “UT President Bill Powers puts to rest Saban rumors”

    Next time instead of trying so hard for views.

    Be a little more responsible. I know it is tough in today’s age… but at least it would be honest. Which in itself, would be original.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDUvqXK4DEM DCinAZ

      DeLoss Dodd went on the LHN network and said he hadn’t considered retirement and it wasn’t even in the cards. Two weeks later he announced his retirement.

  • Lloyd Sessums

    Screw Bama & Auburn! Ag colleges are always 2nd rate universities in any state. Example: MooU (Mississippi State) Go Rebels!!! We might not win every game but we have NEVER lost a party! Hotty Toddy!

  • Guest

    Just so I know…How many Bama fans, who are being really annoying about their loss, ACTUALLY attended the University of Alabama?

    *crickets*

    That’s what I thought.

  • Lloyd Sessums

    If Texas and Alabama get in a bidding war for Satan’s services, Alabama loses! Their women’s volleyball team probably has a bigger budget than Alabama’s football team.

    Just look at Saban’s history. He loses, he leaves.

  • mike

    Alabama has all the talent th
    ey need r want u can count on that rtr

  • Ellis Hughe

    This is obviously fake. Doesn’t even give the supposed sources. UT president already denied rumors earlier today

  • Kati Minter

    If Nick Saban leaves UA for Texas, then oh well! That doesn’t mean that Alabama is going down the toilet. I am sure they will find a coach that is more than willing to take his place. Besides, I think it makes the Iron Bowl much more entertaining if both teams are doing well! War Damn!

    • Bevo Austin

      They didn’t find a coach that was worth a crap BEFORE Saban arrived, did they……..

  • Ronald W. Jones

    OK…let’s just say that Saban coming to TEXAS comes to fruition. Who becomes the Alabama head coach? Kirby Smart?

  • dougmeeks

    Sounds like you idiots need to get new “sources” since you have been punk’d at best or are maybe you are just lame hacks

  • ndotken
  • PastorMark

    Same sources that announced Stoops going to Florida a few years ago?

  • Michael Pesl

    I have friends high in the UT System, and I was told three weeks ago Saban was going to Texas after Mack Brown and DeLoss Dodds both retire on Dec.31st. Sabans’ salary is estimated $10 million/year for 5 years. The UT System would pay 45 % and a group of 5 extremely wealthy boosters/UT Allums would provide the rest of his salary. Does Saban answer to the Regents or ‘The Group of 5′ ? Man cannot have two masters.

  • Bevo Austin

    A FACT that has been proven to be true thus far………. Terry Saban was in Austin house hunting a couple of months ago. When asked about why she was in Austin, she stated “We are looking for a “vacation home”……… Tell me, who buys a “vacation home” in AUSTIN TEXAS………….

    • GB

      closed on a $6,000,000 “vacation” home

  • Ky Hays

    Actually no nc means national championships..and we’ve had 3 of the last 4 championships. . Although yes those were bcs..and as far as saban goes he is great for bamas program..as far as our rivalry. ..we are still in the..win..plus….column. ..dosent matter at this point…..go bluedevils…..go spartans………and can u beat mizzo…..??? Roll tide…..

  • samgamb

    Heard Saban was offered 1% ownership of the Longhorn network.
    Adds up to MILLIONS

    • Bevo Austin

      1% of the Longhorn Network is 3 Million a year.

  • mark

    thats dead

  • Beverlyanne Gann

    For the love of God. I’m sick of hearing this. Texas wants him so bad they can taste it, and Auburn is praying he does go! Get a life!!! Roll Tide.

  • Kelly Fuller

    My Boyfriend called that one! I swear, As soon as the Iron Bowl was over, He looks at me and say (Now this is an Alabama fan and I am Auburn.) “Well we lost to Auburn and watch, Now Saban will leave Alabama.” Well Saban, I think that is Bullshit! If that was his decision, It makes me look at him totally different! I had almost been on the fence and becoming an Alabama fan the past few years, Not bc Auburn hasn’t been doing well but bc Alabama was so damn good! Now Saban pulls this! Dude, that means he is not the “GOD” everyone thinks he is… He makes enough freaking money. He doesn’t have to pack up and leave cause his team looses one time outa 3 or 4 years ughhh!!!!

  • Kelly Fuller
  • Joe Albright

    If Saban leaves we will get another coach. When AJ leaves we will get another quarterback. We won more National Championships with Saban than Auburn has won with all there coaches combined. That being said Saban was not the first coach at Alabama to do this and he will not be the last coach at Alabama to do it. Roll Tide!

  • No Communism
  • Michael Tucker

    so where is the withdrawal of this crude statement about saban? rumor is now he has signed a new deal with bama … and he’s never even talked to Texas’ AD Bill Powers.. credible sources my ass

  • ironoxide

    So this is news? An Oklahoma football site has reliable sources at Texas that have confirmed Saban to Texas is a done deal; yet Texas officials have not talked to Saban and state they don’t even have a position available. Sounds like they need to find new sources.

  • Trent Bobo

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha !!!!!! You clowns have about as much journalistic integrity as a maggot turd.Does it not bother you to look like fools ? Unsubstantiated rumors being passed as truths. What was your plan when the obvious truth came out (well obvious to those of us who exert common sense and rationality) ? Like the man has said for four months now, he isn’t going any where. With his contract extension, Nick Saban will retire the coach at Alabama so take your wishful thinking, envy, jealousy and remedial journalistic practices and root for you mediocre at best high school wannabe big boy powder puff teams and let the men in the sec continue to rule the college football world that you’re only lowly peasants in with our Coach at the helm.

    Just saw on ESPN that Malzahn got a new contract extension at Auburn, so while UT is his “dream job,” that’s not happening. I think there’s a legitimate chance he goes to UT before the Alabama bowl game, but he’s got a great thing going there so if he stayed I can’t blame him.

    We’ll just have to see what happens.

  • Sandy

    Good grief. People posts this stuff just to get both sides in a cuss match. COMPLETELY UNTRUE. http://bamahammer.com/2013/12/06/report-nick-saban-agrees-contract-extension-alabama/

    Anyone think the NCAA is coming knocking at the door in Tuscaloosa?

  • Dave Billings

    I just received word about the bird the bird the bird, the bird bird bird…

  • JJsooner1

    I would be shocked if this happens. If its about money, Bama can pay him whatever he wants. They lost one game because of special teams. It happens. Texa$$ has nothing on Bama, nadda, zero, zilch and who in their right mind wants to deal with Deloser Dodds.

      Deloss Dodds retired a couple months ago

    well people we all said that when it was rumored he was leaving Louisiana

    Sports Illustrated reporting that Mack Brown is resigning

  • Melody Warbington

    Unless your two trusted sources are Mrs. Terry & Nick, I wouldn’t place any bets on it. Mrs. Terry stated publicly they’re retiring in Tuscaloosa.

  • Sam Diamond

    So—- any retraction? LOL Didn’t think you would.

    Solid sources there.

  • Melody Warbington

    I really don’t hate saying I told you so.

  • John D

    I heard Saban to Texas is a lock. Legit sources confirmed!

  • John D

    Looks like Texas couldn’t convince Saban to leave Alabama, so now they are in a power struggle between Mack Brown and the new AD. So much for Texas being the ultimate coaching position in college football. I don’t blame Saban though. Texas is the most underachieving team in the NCAA. The deepest pool of recruits but only 4 Championships.

  • Kevin Hawkins

    Jimmy Sexton … Trolling UT since 2009. Lol!!!

    Come on guys.

    No update?

    I have a question. Do you still trust your sources? LOL

  • Robert Harper

    ROTFLMAO!!! So which one of you five numbnuts is actually going to own up to being the moron who wrote this?

  • Chuck Maske

    Looks like someone needs new sources….

  • ironoxide

    Well, I think you need to go ahead and throw your “trusted sources” under the bus. Was it a booster, administrator, regent, or just somebody who thought they knew? Maybe your site should rededicate itself to concentrating on Oklahoma, rather than Texas or Alabama.
