    Re: When do you think Saban will retire?

    Well, The Bear did not retire until age 69, so take that for what it's worth.
    When my grandma left this life, I didn't say bye. I said see you later.

    RIP, Grandma. Forever in my heart.

    My generous employer gives us 104 vacation days a year. They are called Saturday and Sunday.

    He needs to stay at least 20 years so he can be fully vested in the state retirement system.

    Re: When do you think Saban will retire?

    I knew that it would be a slow month until the BCS championship, but I never thought we would reach to this point where we would be discussing Nick Saban's retirement plans in the near future.... Let's just appreciate what he has done for us while he is still with U of A and what he has done for the program. When he leave, he will be remembered for his legacy, his work with players, and his contribution to society.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    I hope CNS doesn't retire until after I marry a Super Model.

    Re: When do you think Saban will retire?

    I have'nt seen anyone mention the fact that he may be excited to participate for quite a few years in the new playoff system on the horizon? seems it would be even easier to get in the mix and win even more championships than might have been possible in the current system. not that I'm pro playoff, just food for thought

    Because rival fans want him gone from Alabama. Simple as that.

    Terry Saban said somethings that I expected.

    - Coach Saban loved the game still, but the relief to joy balance is tilting towards relief as he gets older

    - The believe that Coach Smart would get the train rolling, which tells me that Coach Saban wants Kirby Smrt.

    I predict that you will not see Coach Smart doing many interviews other than an occasional top 15 gig if he's offered. The next recruiting class could be the last that coach Saban follows through, but having coach Smart will make it easier. His last hurray and he's finished.

    There will be a shadow left, and Coach Smart will either succeed or be a good bridge coach. Kirby Smart will be the DC the day Coach Saban retires.

    Presumptions or pretentious that's how I see it happening.
    I think it all depends on his health. If his health holds up, I don not believe he can turn loose in four more years. That probably will prevent Smart's getting a tryout as HC...

    I don't want to think about it. I am enjoying living through these great times of Bama football with CNS at the reigns. I refuse to even speculate.

    Re: When do you think Saban will retire?

    I agree CNS will retire when he decides it's time. IMO, it will be time when he can't physically get out there at practice and show them how it's done, like we see him doing in video of practices now.

    Hopefully that's a long time off, because I'll be really sad when it happens.

    Re: When do you think Saban will retire?

    Birmingham TV News Channel 33/40 just reported that Saban may be going to Cleveland Browns as General Manager. As they just said, "say it isn't so....". I SINCERELY hope this a rumored report. I felt weak hearing the news!
