    "We've already made our decision. We want coach Bates as our next coach. Period," said defensive end Jay Williams. "There's no discussion about anybody else. That's all upstairs. That's on them right now."

    Nice situation Nick will walk into. I've been in these situation before. He will have them turned around in a couple of weeks to a month. Nick is a winner.

    I was thinking the same thing...They talk a helluva lot at first...I remember what the players were saying at the end of the DiNardo Era...and then what Robert Royal and some others were saying during the off-season workouts...

    And this is why some college coaches never want to coach in the NFL. Let's see how Nick comes down on this.

    Inmates running the asylum? Seriously, I wouldn't take a poll in the locker room to find out who they wanted - I'd find someone to hold their feet to the fire. I'm sure they don't want Saban, because that will mean the gravy train is over. It'll be time to put up or get cut.

    If I saw this coming from my players, it would make me want Bates less!

    Since when did the players ever pick the next coach.

    That's on them right now. NEWS FLASH it was never on ya'll.

    But I hope you get your wish.

    It would be hard but I doubt the players would revolt against Saban. Their play this year showed they need a lot of help.

    I am sure Nick is going to love it when his players start doing their Ray Lewis dance..
    Or better yet how Saban likes to bench people after a fumble. "Jones your sitting you fumbled"

    Jones : Yeh Right coach I am the #2 pick in the draft and I just got a 15 million signing bonus, not only am I not sitting I suggest you call a play to get me the ball

    Miami Owner : I was dissapointed you sat jones today, he is our #1 draft pick and we have some endorsement deals we need for him, lets not let that happen again O.K. coach.. Thanks...

    Near the Bottom : Marlin still suck, Hockey team is failing, Ray Finkle foiled again in his plot to kidnap snowflake. Dan Marino missing and Police chief although female has testicles...

    Bottom : Saban struggling to adjust in the NFL, wishes he never left Baton Rouge

    And the rest of the Sports section.

    While Saban is a great coach at LSU, please remember that he was no where nearly as successful prior to coming to LSU. The school made him as much if not more than he made you.

    Give him some credit

    Um, sorta. He was at Michigan State, a mid tier big 10 team with big brother Michigan lurking about getting better recruits and such. Down here he has the talent to run his kind of team especially his kind of defense. bump and run corners and numerous blitz packages. While I appreciate your respect for LSU (if that's what it was) this was a mutually beneficial relationship.
