You know everyone is putting a TON of stock into what this idiot at ESPN has reported. Keep in mind this guy is NEVER right he has already had to back track on his Atlanta and Giants pick. Is it possible that maybe Saban out of respect to his friend listened to what he had to say ??? Like everyone else, I am pretty sick of the Saban to the NFL rumors EVERY f'ING year. I am tired of it. We just win the National Title and all you hear about is Saban to the NFL this Saban to the NFL that.... OU does not deal with the, USC does not deal with this. No one deals with this but us.... Its the same f'ing story every year. I dont want Saban to leave, if he does. I will almost be thankful that we can actually enjoy the fruits of our season one year without having to deal with this in the media and on Internet chat board. HOWEVER, I think we might want to cut Saban a little slack. 90% of what ESPN and those other idiots report are false. Read some of Len Pasqewhatevers previous articles. He is about as Accurate and the Iraqi information ministry..... SO before we buy this guy hook line and sinker lets see what Saban does, take the man at his word until he otherwise lies to us... He deserves it dont you think ???? Fightintiger I was not referring to you in this post by they way. Just my 2 cents.
