    LOL if you really believe that.

    You really think that Nick Saban can't get another NFL job without justifying why one of the worst franchises over the past 10 years missed on a QB?

    The Miami Dolphins haven't done much of anything right since drafting Dan Marino. I'm sure other franchises in the know certainly blame Nick Saban for the Dolphins past six or so seasons.

    Some of you are scorned ex-girlfriends who will NEVER let it go.

Between Andrew Luck in Indy and Nick Saban running the show in Cleveland, how could we?
    Why are you so sure, Saban wasn't good in the NFL the first time because you can't simply recruit the players you want. You have to be better at judging the talent and working the system in place for acquiring talent better than most of the people in the NFL, who can also be pretty smart themselves. You can't use your name and school prestige and recruit 20 top recruits a year to have the best ones emerge as starters for your team, you have one first round pick and some other draft picks to bring in talent in a predetermined order that may not give you a chance at all at who you want, and you have limited FA and cap dollars to bring in star players. If you make a bad judgement on a top recruit, one of the other top recruits will be there to replace him, or you can just bring in another recruit next year. You mess up a big decision, such as the starting QB position or a 2nd overall pick, and it can handicap your team for years.

    In the end, I will always root against Saban, but I'll always feel like I got the last laugh in that a guy who pretty much wrote books about how awesome he was came to the NFL and ended up running away like a little girl because he couldn't handle it.

    Well if he picked Brees over Culpepper then I'd say he made the right call.

    Unfortunately, head coaches in the NFL don't get the kind of pull that they get in the college ranks.

    And people really need to stop comparing the NFL and CFB. Two totally different games here.

    Nick saban news does anyone really care? He is staying in college where he belongs. If he comes to the NFL he will be average for a couple of years and then drop out back to college

    Lmfao, Saban in the White House? I'll be voting for the other guy. Kidding aside, I could see Saban coming back to the NFL. He's accomplished pretty much everything you can accomplish in college football. I think it may eat at him that he flopped in the NFL as a head coach. He also knows that if he gets- of all teams- the ****ing Cleveland Browns to be a consistently competitive franchise, he'd be a bigger god in Cleveland than he already is in Tuscaloosa. Just food for thought. I doubt he comes back in the end, but I certainly won't be shocked if it happens.
    Die hard Dolphins and Devils fan.

    He sure as hell picked an interesting time to talk about it publicly for the first time in years. Right as his name is being linked to possible NFL jobs... LOL if you believe Saban doesn't have some kind of ulterior motive in mind. He always does.

    FEH

    but he fails to mention how he decided that a part time SEC RB coupled with a journeyman QB best known for banging his head against concrete walls were better options than drafting a QB who fell in his lap who turned out to be a SB and league MVP and arguably the best in the league. Go figure

    This isn't the first time he has spoke about it.

    But in all fairness, the guy has been incredibly busy signing top recruiting class after top recruiting class, beating the dog **** out of Auburn, and in his spare time, winning national championships.

    National championship game is in Miami, he's probably already in town ready to win another national title game against those Catholic frauds.

    Just another in a long list of crap decisions by this franchise over the past 15 years.
