    I predict it will be after the next NC, not this upcoming one, but who knows?

    I think the recent Terri Saban comments about Kirby Smart suggest this is coming sooner than later.
    I took TERRY's comments the complete opposite.

    Can someone post the picture of Debbie Downer? Be happy and enjoy life. Stop worrying about things that are beyond your control.

    Re: When do you think Saban will retire?

    I've always thought he'd coach until he's around his mid to late 60s. I don't think he'll be one of those coaches that chases glory too long and I think he'll probably leave when he's reasonably on top. I just don't see him willingly coaching when he can't give the same effort he has the rest of his career nor will he just resign himself to figurehead status like many guys 70+.

    I think this is a big reason Kirby Smart has been so picky when he's had all the opportunity to bounce for a head coaching job. If he can stick around for 5-6 more years, he's going to be fully groomed to lead a program like Alabama and have it ideally built to have low transition. There won't be any titles given because I don't think that is how Saban works. Saban will leave around his 66th to 68th birthday and Smart takes over in his early to mid 40s.

    My biggest indicators of this are those two Michigan State games in his 66th and 67th year. I think those are some last hurrah games. Wouldn't surprise me if we play Kent State and Toledo around then too.

    Championships is his only reason for coming here. The standard around here is six. He has three in hand and a forth 60 minutes away.

    I don't worry about it. I just want to enjoy what we have right now and live in the moment.

    I'm going to say never. The university will create a metal shell for his body when it is too broken to work on its own anymore.

    He's a very very young 60 and loves what he does so I'd say he'll retire after he wins his seventh national championship.
