    So, having failed in his first and only attempt at the life he's always aspired to, you see Saban as the type who will settle for being the big fish in a smaller pond? And don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with being the best in triple A ball, if that's what you aspire to, and that's your talent level. I think if Bama beats ND next month, you put the last 4 years for 'Bama on a very short list of "college football dynasties." I think Saban wants to achieve that in the NFL, and will grab the opportunity for a second chance if the right chance comes along.

    Yep. Right now, he's nowhere near the level of Harbaugh or Carroll, and that's got to be eating him alive.

    Your description of college ball as triple A is ridicules. Coach Bryant is spoken with the same respect as Lombardi. The locals would choke over here with that LSU, triple A stuff. Coach Saban gave an interview with ESPN this spring. "I learned about myself by going to the NFL, why do I have to go do it again?"

    Lombardi also said that, "at Alabama, Saban, can control all the things he wants to control in his environment. I think he's very content there."

    This. Never trust what Saban says. LSU fans learned that the hard way; so will you, one day. My Triple A comment.... it was a mere analogy, dude....College football is to the NFL, as AAA baseball is to the major leagues....unless you're one of the delusional folk who believe Alabama is equal to the NFL. You're not, are you?

    Yes, I'm very much one of the delusional who believe that college football is a much better product then the NFL. When triple A baseball captures the passion of the average college football fans, get back with me, otherwise let's keep working on those illustrations.
