This thread is the perfect place for people to project their own thoughts and biases onto others and make largely unfounded predictions.

Cowherd on his show this morning predicted CS to NFL soon. Maybe Browns next year. Hope not. But stay or leave, he sure has given Bama back the mojo. You couldn't leave a program in better shape. But I think he stays. He has things going just like he wants them. Why leave?
I can't believe Cowherd always runs with these silly rumors.He can keep dreaming.I think the more people throw this stuff around the more Nick wants nothing to do with it.Instead of these yahoos starting a fire they are really putting it out before it gets started.

His age, accomplishments, wife's statements recently, that it's more enjoyable to build than maintain, fans expectation and more all go into my reasoning.When the fun can't counter balance the weight, he will let us know the end is near, and I am already detecting a slow slide. The 2009 SECCG was the peak, although it peaked for an extended period.
I am not a stupid fan, and would not imply garbage like that. That the team is going south?

If I remember correctly, CNS works directly for the UA President, instead of Coach Moore. But it could be that Coach Moore's eventual retirement could influence how long CNS stays there. Or possibly, how long the UA President stays there. If he had to work with a new AD, or for a new President, who knows how that would come out? Remember why Coach Stallings retired?

The link below is from Saturdaydownsouth, and they posted a story about the possibility of Saban going to the browns as well...
hopefully nothing comes of it, but you never knowtheres a lot of money in the NFL, and a chance to prove something once again....
Why is this thread still up??? Every year around this time it's the same question or rumors about Saban going to Texas, the Cowboys, or the Browns etc... He is already rich out of his mind. At this point in his life it's just about being happy and according to his wife they are very happy where they are at right now.
This has happened yearly since he's gotten Alabama back to prominence. I'll believe it when I see it.
Some of these posts really disgust me. No one knows exactly what will happen with Saban, but I do know the more we talk about it, the more wings these rumors gets. It could be Notre Dame fans or Auburn fans starting rumors and giving the media legs to carry it bigger. That can be a distraction to our team. This will be the only time I post on this thread so I don't contribute to the insanity. Meanwhile the ND and AU fans are sitting back laughing and smiling.
The only time money matters to people is when they don't have enough. I would say Saban has enough money to take care of his family, extended family, charity fund, and whatever else he wants to do. I don't think he makes decisions based on money anymore. He talks about making a difference in young kids. That is his passion. that was Bear's passion. You can't do that in the NFL.
Let's cool it on this topic please.
CNS works under Coach Mal Moore although it was President Bob Witt who approved the hiring contract. CNS is close to former president Witt. They are kindred spirits. Dr. Witt has moved up recently to the chancellor position for the entire University system. He was on stage with CNS for the SEC trophy presentation but for the first time CNS only thanked the "administration" for their support and did not mention Dr. Witt by name. There is no doubt in my mind that CNS misses Dr. Witt as president of the University. They are very similar and both are very driven to succeed at everything they do.
Coach Saban will be on every short list just because he's proven that he can build a program...
Under the right situation (control over personnel decisions, etc..) he might entertain the possibility...
This is a rumor, but i did hear that there were possibly some stock considerations...
hopefully he's stays at Bama until he decides to retire, but you never know.
