He did that and soon realized that he did not have the influence over his players (because they're paid and not influencial students) and decided he wanted to go back to where he can be most effective. The Alabama job was open.. not Toledo, MSU or LSU... so he took it. the guy traveled a path to his dream... and once he got there, he realized it is not what he expected. So now he is back where he belongs in college football... with a powerhouse school. Saban will be there for a long, long time my friends and you can bet on that. You're not going to find a school out there that has as much potential as a team in the sEC. The SEC is where it is at and every coach in the country knows that. No disrespect to the Big 10 or PAC-10 or ACC, but on average, the SEC represents the highest rated teams in the country more often than any other conference... sometimes combined.

Anyway, Nick is back in college football not because he was bored of previous teams, but because he has realized where is the most effective and is at the controls (complete control, actually) of one of the highest prestige schools in the land. He will make "The Bear" proud one day...

RTR!
If the SEC is "where it's at", and "everyone knows that", then why did Saban leave LSU? Saban knew what the NFL was all about. He spent time with the Houston Oilers and the Cleveland Browns under Bill Belichick. He wasn't the wide eyed, innocent coach with an NFL pipe dream, only to be rudely awakened to the difficulties of dealing with pro athletes, as you make him out to be.

I hate to say it my friend, but I can almost guarantee he will leave Alabama as soon as he becomes bored with the school. Like I said in my article- the guy views real life like we view NCAA Football. It's only a matter of time before he ends up somewhere else.

I once thought like youdid about him at MSU, and countless others defended him at LSU until he left. Like I said, it's only a matter of time.

Anyone else a NCAA Coaching mercenary out there, or are you all loyalists?

Re: I Am Nick Saban

Every job Saban has taking has been an improvement over the last one that he held until he left Miami for Alabama. He realized that he made a mistake leaving college football, and is proving that fact as Alabama's head coach. These silly jabs are really getting old. He isn't the highest paid coach anymore, and he'll retire at Alabama.

Ok, your first question... "If the SEC is "where it's at", and "everyone knows that", then why did Saban leave LSU?" Well, I was referencing the SEC being the best place to find the best COLLEGE football teams. I think it's obvious why he left LSU and I already explained that... per his words mind you. Did you think that was my own theory?? No buddy. Saban told the world that a year and half ago in an interview. And he came back to the SEC which is why I said the SEC is where it is at and everyone knows that... including Saban. Another little detail you seemed to have overlooked is that Saban was not the head coach with the Oilers or Browns so he didn't have the influence the position of a head coach gets so he had not, in fact, had an opportunity to live his dream. Again, words from his mouth... not mine. You and every other MS "Who" & LS "Who" ***** will see in a few years where Saban is still coaching. He has been given COMPLETE control over the football program at Alabama and there aren't as many prestigous schools in the land as the one in Tuscaloosa. Oh, and by the way... Alabama will likely be ranked #1 tomorrow morning so please continue to hate on the man who has done so much for all schools mentioned in these threads. Some people can never be satisfied and only think about "what have you done for me lately".... selfish pigs.

RTR!!!

I do believe JohnDoh has a point. The Alabama job is just about as prestigous of a coaching job a head coach could have in college football. If Saban sticks around in the college ranks I doubt that he will leave Alabama. Having said that if, Saban manages to validate himself by winning a NC at 'Bama and the NFL comes calling with a fat contract, or some other college football power house *cough* Tennessee/Florida State *cough* knock on his door with a briefcase full of cash his track record shows he will not hesitate to jump ship. I would be surprised if someone managed to outbid 'Bama, but I would not doubt for a second that Saban would sell his services to the highest bidder.

Now, back on topic. I don't like jumping from team to team. I enjoy raising my Freshmen from season to season as the Aggies.
