I am a UT alum but my loyalty first comes to the local NFL team. Bring on the SABANATOR to our beloved TEXANS!!! He will kick ass as our coach.

Saban: current open in right now in the nfl. My info this afternoon is UT is not the only group in TX that wants Saban, Texans as well.

Finbaum just said he is hearing the #Texans are interested in Saban.

Houston Texans want Saban.

He didn't do a bad job in Miami. I think he would be the next Belichick in the NFL.

I read a rumor the Longhorns was gonna offer him about 10mil a year, plus other incentives from the Longhorn network, I doubt the Texans would be able to compete with that..

Why not?

It would come down to whether McNair is as cheap as some people think he is or not. $10 mill a year is charity money for McNair.

Saban already bought a house in Austin. I hate to be the guy with no journalistic cred who says, "I know people who know," but it's the truth. I have friends in the Austin real estate market who know this for a fact.

Not if he thought about it right. Right now he is one of the greatest college coaches of all time. Win a few Superbowls and he would be considered one of the greatest coaches of all time.

I suppose you'd have to quantify "bad job". His 9-7 and 6-10 records and then quitting are not very impressive. And dude thought Daunte Culpepper was a better choice than Drew Brees.

And please, let's just keep Belichick's name out of this discussion.

Let the horns have Saban. The Texans are better off without him. I never liked him with Miami or the way he left. He is a good college coach but he has recruiting on his side at bama. He has had his choice of the country's top recruits. They come to him. Not hard to build a team that way. Its a lot different in the pros.

Well, that's all correct and I don't disagree but a lot of people thought a lot of guys were a better choice than Drew Brees when he hit the market with what was at the time a bit of a suspect shoulder.

With that 20/20 hindsight I wish the Texans had gone all-in for him but we already had our QB.....

Why not? It's more likely that Belichick would quit the Patriots to come here than Saban quitting Alabama to come here.

Well, for me it's not that he overlooked Drew Brees, it's that he thought Daunte Culpepper was a good choice at QB. He was horrible at that point in his career.

And remember, we are not talking about a lot of guys, but specifically about a head coach that should have a better evaluation perspective than the average fan.

Brad Childress had said dealing with Culpepper was like dealing with with Terrell Owens, and the only thing Culpepper talked about was getting paid.

Clueless on the part of Saban. Dealing with pro athletes is not the same as dealing with student athletes. He was in over his head and quit after two seasons.

12-12-2013, 08:31 AM
I don't think the Texans have anything to do with this rumor.

This is all about Mack Brown and Saban IMO. Mack is throwing a hissy fit because he's about to lose out to Saban again.

Saban's camp probably started this rumor to turn the heat up on UT to expedite Mack's dismissal...which results in Mack and Joe Jamail digging their heels in even more.

My prediction is that Saban stays at Alabama.

Pointing out that a teams owner that is currently on track for an unprecedented 3rd #1 pick in the NFL draft in 11 yrs may not have the lily white motives that he portrys in public makes me not a fan of BoB, then so be it.

But hey, he doesn't owe the fans anything.

One of those they got because they were an expansion team. But they did actually earn one, possibly two 1st picks.

I like the idea of a younger college HC (with some NFL experience to make McNair happy), like the Stanford or Penn State guys who are both Offensive specialists. Lets get a fresh face running the show.

IF all the rumors are true and Saban had a choice, I wonder what he would do.

a) Stay at Alabama rich, fat, and happy? (and try and catch Bear Bryant)

b) Try and prove he is an NFL caliber coach?

c) Try and coach three different NCAA schools to national championships?


If his ego is what I think it is, I would bet on (c). That would likely be an untouchable record for decades (if not centuries) to come.

If it was me, I'd go for (C). If he was able to take the Horns to a national title next year, that would be 4 in 5 years, with two different teams. Obviously, it's very UNlikely to happen, but I imagine that feat would never be duplicated. Literally never.

It's not exactly unprecedented.

Since the 90's, a couple of teams have done it. The Colts had the #1 pick in 1990, 1992, and 1998. They even had the 2nd pick in 1992 and in 94, they had the 2nd pick again and got Marshall Faulk. In 1998, they got Manning. But that's 3 #1s in 9 years. And then they had a 4th a couple of years ago.

The Bengals also did it. They had the #1 in 94, 95, and 03.

The Browns had consecutive #1s in 99, 00. But not a third.

He is a first class sleaze, and if I ever met him I'd punch dead in his mouth.

:toropalm:

Brees entered the league and was hot garbage for two years, then turned it around in his last two years with the Chargers, even though his INT total went up from the year before. I don't think anyone saw him as "elite" like he became with the Saints. Culpepper had a mixed back in Minnesota, but had 3 excellent years there that one would think were indicative of his abilities. 39/11 in 2004, not too shabby, and that was one year off him going to Miami.

I think injuries derailed the second half of his career, while Brees has been relatively healthy. All coaches make bad decisions...

I normally do not trust college coaches as NFL coaches because the game is clearly so different. Sometimes though, you have to consider giving a guy a second chance.

Not Saban though. It would be one thing if he left with glowing reports from the players despite the average record of the Dolphins in his tenure, but he was essentially labeled as a blowhard from the get-go. If/When Schiano gets fired, he will never get a job in the NFL again. Not because his can't coach, but because his attitude is not meant for the grown men of the NFL. Pete Carroll, as much as I hate him, knows how to mesh with the players and that is every bit as important as the X's and O's in this game. Players got to buy all in.

There's a line with that. Kubiak meshed well with players; too well.

McNair had it right at the press conference: head coaches have to do what's right for the overall team, not the players.
