    Haven't watched it either but I think that is what he was insinuating. If so, Granny Holtz is nuts! As long as we're winning as much as we are I think Saban is perfectly happy (except for losing the games we have). He wont lose his edge anytime soon.

    When he quits bringing in top recruits for years and years and we are not winning, then I'll agree.

    Folks might kill me for this but I thought we would be better next year than we are this year. But it wouldn't be the first time I've been wrong either.

    No, not at all. Take 29 seconds and watch it.

    Re: Lou Holtz on Nick Saban. Thoughts? (Video)

    Over analyzing after one game (loss) is typical of guys on a sports discussion who get paid to stir up interest. I like Lou, he reminds me of my grandfather years ago. The Game Day guys are entertaining, especially Corso. What they say may not always reflect their true opinions. They may have a role to play for the show to bring various angles to the discussion. Words spoken on their shows will not affect the direction of our program, coaches' decisions, and hopefully not fan confidence.
    All that aside, I enjoy the different opinions about their statements brought to the discussion here too.

    I get trying to stir up fanbases to generate discussion but this is just stupid. Holtz is a fool and a well known cheater that got every school he coached at on NCAA probation. ESPN has no business employing this weasel or Lee Corso. They're both washed up punch lines.

    I'm not sure how else you can read that. He's playing into that common media mentality. Highest of the highs and lowest of the lows.

    Holtz is not saying that one painful loss means a coach should retire.
    Holtz is not saying that it is time for Saban to retire.
    Holtz is not saying anything that should be construed as he wishes Saban would retire.

    These are paranoid interpretations borne of thin skin, and a tendency to hear and believe the worst as a sports fan when it comes to anything pertaining to one's own favorite team.

    Holtz is saying that Saban and Alabama are at the point where there is so much pressure to perform that the game is no longer fun, and that it's unhealthy. Now there is plenty of reason to believe he is wrong about this, all you have to do is look at the team's reaction to winning championships, or last week's LSU game. Holtz's bias in favor of teams he used to coach is well-documented and can be seen every single week, but for a thin-skinned fan to say Holtz holds this opinion because of bias says more about the fan than it does about Holtz.

    This past game is not the Tennessee tie in 93 where we never really came back, but it is similar in that the team was not improving but was trying not to sink, and ultimately did. I believe it is more enjoyable for everyone when your team is not a straight line. Our line just broke and it was probably good medicine. We lost too many players that still had eligibility and we are probably not as good as than we thought. We are rebuilding and it may last through mid season next year before we start to head uphill again with new young talent. It could start like the 2008 season.


    While I disagree with Holtz that the end is near, I do agree that some of the amazement with winning has been replaced with expecting it.

    Listen up Granny Clampett, just because you can't chew the leather any more (....could you ever??) don't project your own shortcoming on Coach Saban.

    Lou's become a blithering old fool idiot. Oh wait. He's been one for some time now. Still mad from that loss in 79 I guess.

    Somebody does an impersonation of Lou Holtz on Rick and Bubba every Friday during the football season. Funny thing is he makes more sense than the real Lou!!!
