Heard from someone today that Texas may throw a boat load of money at him if Nick Saban says no...5 years/$8 million per year.
Jim has previous college head coaching experience, so he knows what he would be getting into. He makes around $5 million a year now, so this would be a big increase...al...

I think this would be good for college football in the long run, where the entire country has something at stake.
We would just have top accept that the conference winner was the best team from that conference, and if you weren't good ...

And when it does, Alabama will decline. It is a cycle. Here is why:

Let me preface this by saying that the BCS, started in 1998, was the best thing that happened to college football. It forced the top 2 teams to play each other in their final game of the season. Prior to that, the bowl alliances most often kept fans of the sport from seeing the top 2 teams play in...

| Tiger Rant|| Since 1982, Alabama leads the series 16-15-1 - Chicken on 10/30/13 at 12:14 pm|
I chose 1982 because that was the year LSU broke the curse of the Bear. Prior to the 1982 season, Bear Bryant and Alabama had won 11 straight games against LSU. The 1982 game "restored order" and essentially reset the series. LSU, lead by Alan Risher, Dalton Hilliard and a stifling defense, beat ...

I think many of the power brokers in college football expected there to be only 4 conference when the dust settled...either the ACC or Big 12 would fold. But the ACC made itself stronger by adding Louisville and Notre Dame (for all but football) and some other Big East teams.
I don't suspect tha...
