    The dirty little secret is, Saban or not, the University of Alabama's athletic program loses money each year. Football makes money, but the program loses money.

    Is that the case? I think their only other great sports currently are golf, gymnastics and bowling. Not your bill payers for sure.

    The gumps did this when they lost Franchione, at the 11th hour they spread disinformation in an attempt to embarrass the guy into staying put. He got on the plane.

    Herbstreit better watch what he is reporting and who he uses as sources.

    I have heard things which indicate that satan just wants a change of scenery and to get away from the poor financial partners who snookered him into bad deals.

    BTW his son (and wife w/ baby on the way) live in Austin.

    I'll bet Saban would leave for 8 million a year... knowing he can get even more later on when he crushes the Big 12 competion.

    Somebody should have told Bear Bryant that a horse pushes a load, not pull it.

    Sorry, couldn't help it.
