    Look at the talent level of those teams immediately following his departure. They could have easily won every one from 2005-2007.

    Goodness... look at the success Les Miles has had down there. Switch Saban back in at LSU, and you remove the behemoth that we've become... LSU owns this division and the SEC.

    Re: Saban addressing the rumors he might be leaving Alabama

    LSU stumbled a bit in 2004. Randall was just a poor QB for them. They could have won at least conference title in 2002 if not for Mauck getting hurt and forcing Randall onto the field.

    I think the 2005 team would have probably won a title with Saban which is a big reason why Les had such a mild relationship with LSU fans early on...they thought that team should have won a title that very year. LSU with a matured Saban-led program from 2005 through 2007 could have been a terror.

    Agreed. He did a rebuilding job here but he took a disaster there with very little tradition and was on his way to building a juggernaut.

    I don't think anyone using common sense could argue that point.

    Very classy of Coach Saban to even talk to this guy. Retard uh....LeBartard was one of the most critical when he left Miami. If he had said of me what he said of him, I would not have given him the time of day.

    If you actually listen to the audio interview I think you'll agree---Coach Saban's not leaving. He also did an incredible job of mending fences.

    I have no idea about Lebartard but there was a mutual respect between all parties involved. That was very good, and YES, Coach has hired a PR director...trust me lol...

    He has improved beyond belief.

    sip

    Re: Saban addressing the rumors he might be leaving Alabama

    LeBatard is much like Paul Finebaum. Though both started as sports journalists, they've transcended that title and have become media personalities. With that said, sometimes they will say some things to get attention or appease the interests at the moment of the audience. Their product is selling the words out of their mouth and sometimes that requires being a bit more edgy than even he realizes is needed.

    LeBatard seems to have known that Saban left Miami not out of hate for the city or franchise but because he just didn't fit in the pro game like he thought. Unfortunately, saying that wasn't going to goad people into listening.

    While I agree with everything you have pointed out, my point is at Alabama you have a certain mindset about winning, specifically championships, that you don't have at other schools including LSU. So if the culture does not promote winning and the confidence that goes with it you may not win as many championships at some places even with a HOF coach and great talent IMO.
