VOTE: Would you swap Jim Harbaugh for Nick Saban?

Nick Saban
What if Nick Saban and Jim Harbaugh swapped jobs?
If you believe that Nick Saban is the greatest coach in college football today, you’re either an Alabama fan or you pay attention to facts.

Saban has led a team to a five national championships since 2003 (LSU after 2003 regular season; Alabama after 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2015 regular seasons).

He started at LSU in 2000 and led the Tigers to the title in 2003 (game in 2004). He started at Alabama at 2007 and led the Tide to a title after 2009 season. Granted those are two schools alway have a lot of talent, but that is still quick work. And Alabama has been consistently among the top 5 recruiting schools since he has been there.

He’s done so well that a few years ago Saban reportedly turned down a lucrative offer Texas. He later denied it and said, “I’m just too damn old to start over somewhere else.”

But what if, for the 2017 season, Saban indeed started over with a new school? In fact, what if you traded him with the coach from another team? Which team would win a national title first?

Tuberville

A few weeks ago, former Cincinnati, Ole Miss, Auburn and Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville announced he would not be running for governor of Alabama.

After statements he made the other day, don’t expect him to run for governor of Texas either.

Tuberville told the Rick & Bubba radio show when he left Auburn and landed in Lubbock, Texas, he felt like he was in “Siberia.”

Go East, Auburn … and take Alabama with you

Auburn TigersAuburn has no problem with moving to the SEC East. In fact, one could say it wants to move to the SEC East, since the Auburn people seem to be the only ones suggesting it every year.

Pat Dye here. Gus Malzahn there. 

You can bet the so-called “soft” SEC East looks tempting to the Tigers.

But what if rival Alabama also made the jump? Still tempting?

Monday headlines: QB Class of 2012 a major fail?

Jameis Winston arguably is the lone bright star from Class of 2012.
Jameis Winston arguably is the lone bright star from Class of 2012.

It has been obvious for quite awhile that successful college football teams are quarterback-driven. Because of that, the recruiters battle hard every year to get the best QB to sign.

A story in SBNation.com suggests the recruiters coming after the cream of the 2012 crop might have been battling for nothing.

Outside of Heisman winner Jameis Winston, the rest of the class was a big disappointment.
