    Saban addressing the rumors he might be leaving Alabama

    http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/in...at_alabam.html

    "This has been a good thing for my family to be here," Saban said. "College football has been very good for us. The positive impact that you can have on these young men as players and as people, that's just something that we really enjoy and something that I learned about myself."


    "I really enjoy what I'm doing here right now. I'm getting old now. I don't think we've got too many moves left in us. You develop a lot of relationships and loyalties to the players you recruit and the players you have on the team and the people you have in the organization. I don't think it's really fair to leave. I regretted when I left LSU because I left a lot of relationships there. Hopefully I'll be able to stay here for a long, long time."

    When asked about the perception that he is unhappy, Saban said the perception does not match up with reality.


    "Maybe I don't always show it and maybe I'm always worried about the next game. I'm happy, I'm very, very happy. I'm very pleased and happy with what we've been able to accomplish here."


    "We haven't practiced for two weeks since that game so I haven't had the chance to yell at anybody. We start practice tomorrow so everybody better tie it on."

    So he does plan to move?

    Finally!!! Can we now make it a rule that if you talk about Coach Saban leaving you're stuck with an Auburn icon?

    Ron Jaworski finds this unsatisfactory.

    I wouldn't read too much into it. It sounds and looks like he is happy here. I think what he said about the idea of him helping kids speaks louder. At this point in his career, it sounds like that is the legacy he wants to leave as opposed to moving up the ladder in the near future.

    It tips more towards he's staying, since that is a national topic, but I have never liked "right now". If a coach is going to stay, all he really has to do is say it. But on the flip side that is what got him in trouble. So maybe he has a rule against saying anything definitive.

    The fan base when coach Saba arrived was like someone crawling out of the desert asking for some water and he gets the fire hose.

    Made me a little more comfortable but it's still a chance. He still had lessons to learn himself. I just hope he's learned from his past mistakes.
    ROLL TIDE!
