    I'm sure plenty of people want to see Coach Saban retire. But that won't happen until, at least Feb of 2026.

    Roll Tide! How man more national championships over the next 8 years?

    If he were willing to be hired away to another university, he probably could make even more.

    That could very well be true. But I think he will be at Bama until he retires. His wife, Miss Terri, likes it in Tuscaloosa.

    That's a fair appraisal. He did pay his dues and his success is unquestionable.

    My hope for him, Alabama and college football overall is that the contract expires without any scandal the likes we've seen with Jim Tressel and Joe Paterno. Have no reason to believe there's trouble but the way things pop up out of the blue, one gets gun shy.

    And as he stays Urban Meyer of Ohio State is going to get fired.

    The lynch mob has formed, he is on leave. It's over.

    Now it's just Alabama and Clemson for the next 10 years or so.

    Ohio State places Urban Meyer on paid administrative leave
