    It was pretty depressing for him also. He made a lot of remarks about wondering if the game had passed him by...

    Earl, how sick was Coach Bryant other than his heart problems when he died? He was only 68 as I recall, but the last few years of his life he really aged fast. He looked like he could have been 78.

    OTOH, CNS at 61 looks a picture of health. I know he doesn't smoke and I've never heard about him drinking either. Looks like he could coach another 10-15 years if he wants with no major health issues.

    He doesn't drink much, if at all.

    Coach Bryant lived a hard life, one which he made hard on himself and the state of his health. I could say more, but I'm not going to. Saban has health problems, but they're not the product of tobacco and booze. He exercises and stays in shape and, as noted above, he really doesn't even drink at all. After we won the NCG in '09, old friends tried to get him just to have one drink, but he didn't. If he has one health-threatening habit, it's those damned oatmeal cakes, packed with saturated fat...

    I hope Saint Nick keeps delivering gifts to the Bama faithful for many years.

    I heard that after he had to do all those takes for the ESPN commercial that he got sick of them. I think he literally had 20-30 takes of him taking a bite out of one.
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    When Saban came to Alabama, at the time I was just hoping he would coach us long enough to win a championship and set us up like he did at LSU, anything more would be icing on the cake. He has delivered in spades and all indications are he will stay as long as he, the fans and University are happy.

    The longer he stays the harder it's gonna be to get rid of him.

    Has the ban on LSU fans been lifted?

    I think CNS & more importantly Ms Teri, like it here just as much as we like having him.

    Anyone know just how much money he gives back? I have heard it was over $1m a year to various charities?

    I think he is at home.
