From the hills of Georgia's northland beams my noble brow.
The end of the dynasty? Paul Finebaum believes Nick Saban’s inability to keep continuity on the Alabama staff could signal trouble
The reason why I don't see him retiring is he would have to move. If you were Nick Saban, would you retire and then watch someone else be "the guy" in Tuscaloosa? Also, if you're the next coach, do you want the former coach living where you're trying to be the king of the hill? I think his coaching exit might mirror that of Bear Bryant's.
Georgia Players make more money in the NFL, but I wonder if our coaches point that out when trying to recruit against specific schools. The UGA Athletics Department also academically advises our players in a way that makes them nearly finished with a bachelors by the time they leave early for the NFL, but I guess that isn't as flashy of a headline.
It's Dan Mullen's second year-- things are going to be bumpy still. Even the troll fans from UGA probably know that. Trolls grow stronger during talking season.
Snowflakes all of them. I didn't even bring up Kirby Smart sabanfanman. I'm gonna assume you're one of two different types on here: a fan from a different school who wants to make Bama fans look like heels, or BamaTime's best friend.
I don't love Calipari, but at least he doesn't possess the gall to ask a player to aggrandize his coaching career at the expense of a player's family and his ability to provide for them. Let the kid go and earn.
Smart kid. I like how he phrased this. Honest and diplomatic.
Does anyone else think BamaTime is actually Harvey Updyke?
I can't put an exact date on that, but I do know when LSU stopped being one. It was about the time Nick Saban's recruits left Les Miles' roster.
There's an enormous gap between what you think you know and what you actually know when you're 18. For instance, thinking only one program is blowing smoke up your a$$ when actually every program in the country is blowing smoke up your a$$. That being said, I hope Oklahoma works out for him. Maybe they'll put more muscles on his arms instead of just tattoos.
I went to the rose bowl, and though my liquid diet that day has my memories somewhat hazy, I remember it as a phenomenal experience. But why don't we stick the game in Atlanta every year? Flights are cheap and plentiful (LAX is garbage), the CFB Hall of Fame is there, the venue is phenomenal. Just my opinion though.
I really don't think we settled. He was the next man up. I don't know if Chaney was trying to leverage an offer into a raise, but I know for sure Georgia had no interest in matching what Tennessee was offering. I wish him all the best, and I hope Tennessee gets back to form and helps the SEC East be a force again. It's boring when Georgia being the division champ is a foregone conclusion. I like winning and all, but we need our division to step up.
WATCH: Maria Taylor has the perfect response to speculation that Green Bay could lure Nick Saban away from Alabama
Why would he ever leave? He's worshipped as a minor god, the cost of living is nothing in Tuscaloosa, he has total control, and he's not terribly successful in the NFL. There isn't any amount of money that would make him leave. And yes, Terry Saban has made it perfectly clear she's happy in Alabama. If I were him, I'd never leave.
BamaTime's comments make more sense if you imagine he's posting in a sad, wood-paneled room strewn about with empty generic mountain dew containers and a filthy jizzrag at his feet.
I'm excited we're playing Texas because it should have some recruiting benefits. Our student body already has so many kids from the Dallas and Houston areas, so maybe a Georgia win will boost our football recruiting there as well.
Mark Richt has lost control of the Texas A&M Aggies.
And yes, Alabama will probably BTH outta us haha.
I think overrated is reaching. We aren't as good as last year, but we've earned our spot.
He's a great hire. Fans need to breathe and give him a chance to get his foundation set. I think he'll end up doing really well there.
@thunt33 that was very rude and unnecessary. You are not representing the bulldawg nation very well. Mizzou fans have always impressed me with their kindness, so please try and return the favor.
You kiss your sister with that mouth BamaTime?
I texted her about this but she deleted it.
Agreed. I like last year when Kirby brought refs to practice and had everyone's penalties and yards lost called out at the end of practice.
Athens is in the bible, so...
They got two way too easy touchdowns on Georgia.
Yeah well, I just don't want to hear a Tennessee fan commenting on football.
I hope I find a ticket to that one. My cousin is marrying an LSU fan, and she and I agree there aren't two better fan bases to be friends. We don't play too frequently so it's hard for hate to build up. Also, both schools know how to party. Finally, UGA and LSU dislike all the same schools. It should be a great time down in Baton Rouge!
I'd lean Miami personally, but I really don't care. It's hands down the best game of the opening weekend!
I think even the coaches who get the awards would agree.
Track and field is literally athletics. Athletics is the term for all track and field events together.
