    And that shows you the desperation of media these days. Last year, it was Texas or the Cowboys. This year it was Texas. Now it's the Browns. He's talked so much about the differences in the pro game, why it didn't fit him and why he likes the college game so much more - and it's made sense, sense that media folks (and Nancy fans) just don't want to understand for obvious reasons...

    Coach Saban needs to stick around to see how we do a few years in the new Play-off System after the BCS is in the rear view mirror.

    Coach, it's too cold in Cleveland!

    Is 33/40 a reliable station?
    All I can find on Twitter are a handful of similar Tweets, one that says Saban and Lombardi "wouldn't work together in 1000 years" and Terry Saban's steing denial Friday that they'll leave T-town at all

    Yes, it is the ABC news station in B'ham. It is one of the three main stations for B'ham, along with CBS and NBC. They were also the one who last week who reported early on that KS was interviewing at Auburn, which was true. We can hope they are off base this time, I suppose.

    For some reason I doubt Raita could scoop ice cream, much less a story.

    Re: When do you think Saban will retire?

    I would tend to believe Terry Saban rather than a TV station in B'ham. This is Terry Saban's answer:To answer your question and get right to the point, no, she said. Were very comfortable here. We love it here. Its a great fit for our family. Its a good fit for me. As far as were concerned, this is where well retire someday.

    As far as jobs go, this is it for us. I dont mean to be presumptuous. I would have to talk this over with Nick, but as far as Im concerned, this is it.

    Thanks for pulling the full quote.
    I remembered the gist of what she said but could not find exact quote.

    So, is this just a ploy by rivals to kill our buzz?

    I agree. After hearing the reported story, I did a bit of research. I read the same above quote on line. I think that quote was just days ago, as well. I do not think the story has legs, so to speak. I just can't see Saban making a move like that when he knows his success has been in college coaching.

    Also, correction to the reported 33/40 ABC story - that was if Lombardi was hired as the new GM, then Saban following as the coach.

    Even if it is Jan 10, 2013, Kirby would take over and we wouldn't miss a beat. I wouldn't worry.

    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.
    Who knows? I'll bet Paul Johnson won't be his replacement!

    Well my present wife doesn't seem too concerned about me marrying a Super Model so I guess it will be a very long time.

    Re: When do you think Saban will retire?

    Seems like the rumors about Saban and the Browns are a little stale. http://www.sbnation.com/college-foot...-browns-rumors.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...very-unlikely/

    One of the comments after the first article states that the new owner of the Browns is a big Tenn. supporter. I know when Bear was at Bama it seemed like every year there was some rumor about him leaving in order to hurt recruiting.
