Answers in order: 1-Brees would've been a Dolphin. 2-Saints probably eventually find a QB and make the playoffs once or twice. Maybe win a playoff game. Not the SB. 3-I don't think the Dolphins win a SB with Saban as coach. He ran as soon as things got tough and he couldn't yell and intimidate his players. I think the Dolphins could've won a SB with another coach. I don't think Saban would win a SB unless he had the absolute best staff and players, plus some nice breaks go his teams' way. I don't think his personality is fit for grown men with more power and money than him. Just my opinion. Nobody break my balls!...please??. 4-Yes. LSU absolutely wins the 2012 BCSNCG. Barring some freak occurrance or player misconduct, we steam roll anyone outside of a Saban coached Bama team who we had already beaten. 5-Yes, possibly. W/o Saban, I think it's LSU vs. UGA in the SEC title game. Does LSU win? Yes, I think so. Do we beat ND? I don't know. I'll tell you after Jan. 7th. Gotta see how ND matches up w/ Bama.
I think Alabama beats em.
Then there's Meyer not getting his mental/physical problems, not retiring and staying at UF. That leaves UGA facing a Meyer UF team and we've seen how that tends to go...
Meyer was a bust without Tebow. He knew his ship was sailing after senior year. Thats why he set course for the SlowTen. Had nothing to do with Saban. But your attempt to make everything in the universe revolve around Saban is duely noted. Thanks and go Gump your sister.
Meyer is a good ball coach. He'd practically have the same roster Muschamp does today and would have had more offensive production. If you look at their calling card this year, the defense, you'll see all were recruited by Meyer, nine of the 11 starters signed by Meyer.
Hell furd, LSU did grab the W at home against UF in Meyer's last year by four and that was with a fake field goal and last second TD.
My comment, if you'll read it again, was UGA not being in the SECCG.
You're making it about Saban.
I was doing the "what if" scenario w/ just the no-Saban factor. You went several moves ahead in the timeline as compared to my one move. Obviously your playing chess while i'm playing checkers. Checkmate.
I don't know about that. It's just if Meyer would have stayed at UF and if Saban would have stayed in Miami. How's that much different?
Did I mistakenly take the direction this thread has turned as a "what if" scenario?
When you mentioned what you did there were a few things that crossed my mind along with Meyer. Brian Kelly was a finalist for the Tennessee job and they went with Kiffin. If that would have happened we might be talking about an LSU vs UT game in ATL. It's a safe bet if that would have happened we wouldn't be talking about Notre Dame in the BCSNC.
Kevin Sumlin was a finalist at Auburn before they decided to go with Chizik. What would the SEC West look like now if that would have happened? Sumlin is a really interesting storyline in the "what if's" if you consider how that would have changed Auburn and A&M.
Only you can answer that.
