    Re: When do you think Saban will retire?

    I think it depends on how many games and championships he wins. I say around 10 years..RTR

    Alabama is 2- and 3-deep all over the place with full grown, meaner-than-he!! men. It's almost not fair making college kids play against them. Any Saban-coached team is going to be deep as he!! with recruits that have elite size, strength and experience at their position and they are going to play with incredible physicality.
    I support PAWS.

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.

    Nobody SAID they knew what would happen...and no one here has started a rumor, either.

    Post concerning Coach Saban and Coach Smarts future as HC should be postponed

    Post concerning Coach Saban and Coach Smarts future as HC should be put on the burner.

    These questions are trouble for the board imo. They are speculative, deal with a touchy subject not immanent, and many members have strong feelings about the outcome. In looking at the some of the threads I am seeing the word and words related to "Disgust" from a particular point of view towards another point of view. Can't say anyone is correct, and won't be able to for some time, which is fuel for battle. Any thread or topic that deals with the future of our head coach 9 out of 10 times ends in trouble. Some of the most intense threads in the past 10 years were concerning the head coach. Since it is not a pending topic, is it worth it?

    Sincerely,
    Capstonetider

    I agree the issue really shouldn't be discussed at this point. However, haven't you started many of the talks?

    I think he'll stay about 10 myself, and then call it quits...I think it depends on how long he can keep himself performing to his own expectations...

    You know I am not trying to cause trouble in this thread but since you asked I have responded to the threads and if I started one you will have to let me know. But hindsight comes into play sometimes.

    I agree. There is a BIG difference between being a head coach and a assistant coach. I would hope that most Bama fans would see that Nick Saban has at least 5 more years left in him. The man is in great health and can stay as long as he would like.

    If there's national speculation about Coach Saban's future (the so-called Lombardi connection with the Browns, for one example) that's a legitimate point for board discussion.

    It's up to us -- with the gentle prods of the moderators -- to handle that discussion like adults.

    Re: When do you think Saban will retire?

    I hope CS stays another ten years. O admire the guy, but football like life is cyclical. I get the sense from things said in some interviews lately that the fun is diminished a little. I get that. I feel in my gut that he's looking for that next challenge. What man doesn't feel that way? If he leaves the program will go on, but I don't feel as some do on here that it wouldn't miss a beat. It would. Alabama is not going to be the top dog every year. Not even top five every year. This run will end. As much as it pains me to say this, even that cow college down the road will eventually get its act together, and yes will more than likely beat us any given year. I've been around enough to see things as they are and put them into proper perspective.100 years from now it won't matter to any of us anyway. And as far as what Terry Saban said in her interview about Nick retiring here. Coaches and at times their wives are pretty much the same as politicians. Just look at how upset the fan base is at Arkansas State, and other schools right now with their beloved coach leaving. Again I admire Coach Saban, I hope he retires here, but don't be surprised if he packs up for the next big challenge. I figure that's what keeps him alive. Roll Tide!

    That fits the immanent category, just like the Kirby to Auburn.

    Not trying to suggest censorship, but there is a paranoia about coach Saban retiring and we haven't got a clue. Pure speculation and some responses angers others more than most topics, by far imo.
