Here is what I am hearing about Saban and FWIW I have heard from multiple sources for the last couple of weeks. He is at the 5 year mark, a point in his career where he begins to get restless, he will likely consider a lucrative offer to take over Texas after Mack Brown “resigns” at the end of the season.
Why? IMO, the money will be better, recruiting will be easier (doesn’t have to fight for a recruit) and the Big 12 brand of football will be less competitive than that of the SEC. Compare Austin’s quality of life to that of the T-Town ghetto. The gamechanger will be the fanbase. Granted Horn fans are crazy about their football but they don’t shoot each other or commit acts of domestic violence when shit turns south like Bama fans do.
Tough choice? Not really.
