    IMO - The issue (for this year) was put to rest when AJ decided to return for his senior year. Don't think he would have done that knowing there was a chance Saban would be leaving.

    But that doesn't seem to resonate with the media.

    People outside Alabama WANT him to leave, HOPE for him to leave, PRAY he leaves...thus this repeated conversation every year. They hate he fits so well here and his family is happy here.

    You think that could end it?

    As long as we are Alabama and as long as CNS remains our coach, it ain't going away. Your best solution is to avoid listening to and reading anything put out by ESPN.

They have to say something, so the easy thing is, "Well, son, I agree he's a good coach, but it's an open secret that he's going back to the League. It's the only thing he ever failed at and he's not going to leave that legacy. And you can ignore him when he says he isn't going, because he said he wasn't leaving Miami just a few seasons ago. You can go to Tuscaloosa, and he won't be there. But I'll still be at [fill in the blank]. It's probably not all that effective, actually, but what else are they going to say?
