Who is your LSU Mount Rushmore of Coaches?
Saban doesn't even belong on the arse crack Mt. Rushmore carving of the rear of Lou Tepper.
Creative and funny, but Saban finally got the program through to excellence after decades of trying. He absolutely deserves a spot, LSU has far better reason to give him a statue than Bama did.
I would agree Saban was a great coach at LSU - for 2 seasons: (2001 and 2003.) However, he lost 3 or more games in ALLLL but one season, and lost embarrasingly to:
UAB, VT, UT, Florida (3 times, twice by a rout), Arkansas (TWO Hail Marys ??????) and Iowa.
He "inherited" Dinardo's talent just like people claim Miles "inherited' his.
And the Miami Dolphins was not his 'dream' job.
Wayne Huizenga had to land his personal helicopter on Saban's Highland Road estate to beg him.
And Saban took the bait. He could have stayed several more years at LSU, but he would have left anyway for another job. The man has showed no loyalty, no scruples (resigning to his asst coaches on the INTERCOM in Miami?), and no honesty or integrity. ("I will NOT be the next coach at Alabama, I don't care how many times you guys ask me, so STOP asking me.")
There were also rumors that he HAD TO LEAVE Baton Rouge because of some - indiscretion ???
"""""""""""THIS""""""""""" is a man who deserves his bust on a 'Mt. Rushmore' ???????????????
None of the other coaches mentioned left under the same circumstances as Saban.
You could say Dietzel did, but he came back to be AD. Henry maybe, but not McClendon, Brown, Bertman, or Moore.
Miles has turned down his alma mater TWICE to stay in Baton Rouge. Saban would have NEVER done that.
So Saban's head on an LSU Mount Rushmore ??????
You have got to be kidding........
Bertman, Brown, McClendon, and Miles all RUN CIRCLES around Saban as far as character, integrity, honesty, and LOYALTY......
