I just heard a snippet on the radio.
Saban said if he had been able to get a good quarterback he might have stayed at Miami. He didn't think he could win enough without one, and thought he would have a better shot at winning at Bama.
My understanding of that is that we lured Miami's coach to Bama successfully, whereas before I was more of the opinion he quit Miami and then considered Bama. In other words, without the Bama job opening up, perhaps he might have stuck it out in Miami a few more years.
Who knows the bottom line...but I think it's an interesting facet of Sabanology.
