It's going to be hard to fire a coach who is breezing through the Big 12 and is in line for a BCS bowl, though.

Texas is the best job of course but I doubt he leaves. I wonder if they'd tear down his statue Paterno-style if he bolted.

I'm not sure why he'd ever leave, except "dollar signs", but even then he couldn't do any more at Texas than he has done at Bama

I'll just leave this here.

http://espn.go.com/womens-college-ba...ketball-opener

Hoping to lure students to its women's basketball opener, Kansas State wanted to offer a giveaway that the kids couldn't refuse.

Free bacon!

The school announced the promotion on its Twitter feed Tuesday, with the plan to have its concessionaire, Sodexo, cook 100 pounds of bacon that would be served to students an hour before the game.

Kansas State is frying up 300 pounds of bacon to give away to students before the women's basketball season opener against Tennessee State on Friday night.
"We wanted to do something food-related to make a splash," Kansas State athletics spokesman Randy Peterson told ESPN.com on Wednesday morning. "We've done free pizza before, but every college kid has access to pizza. It's a little harder to get bacon."

But the promotion garnered so much attention, Kansas State wants to make sure every student who attends gets the promised boat of bacon -- a paper container that will be filled to the top with bacon.

"Due to demand and the activity on social media, the bacon order has now increased from 100 pounds to 300 pounds," Peterson said.

Peterson said the increased order is expected to feed about 750 people. All students get free admission to women's basketball games with a student ID.

The program is trying to learn from a mistake it made on Dec. 28, 2004, when it offered $1 hot dogs during a basketball game against Rutgers. So many fans took advantage of the promotion that they ran out before the end of the first half, Peterson said.

Kansas State, which plays Tennessee State on Friday, has ranked among the top 35 schools in women's basketball attendance for the past 12 seasons

I have long considered Texas & Florida to be jobs 1 & 1a in the country, being able to argue either as the very best.

I know this is just fan voting & doesn't mean anything substantial but thought it was interesting that most of the country thinks Alabama is a better job than Texas,

http://espn.go.com/espn/fp/flashPoll...pollId=4036913

probably attributable to conference association & recent success but I agree w/ you.

Texas is in a power league & has an easier path to the NC. Furthermore they can & do match anyone in terms of $, facilities, talent, history.

But the differences are so slim that jumping from Alabama to Texas is ostensibly a lateral move. I'll be surprised if it happens.

Texas is the top job in CFB and Saban is the top coach so it makes sense.

Coach Self would ask him why he didn’t make curfew and he’d say, “Because the club was crackin’!” Everyone would laugh and he’d make B-Rush run a little bit.

This is true.

Nobody does less with more than the Longhorns. Texas has one national title in the last 40 years and only two Big 12 titles ever. Saban is 62 years old, though. Let's say he coaches five more years...all at Texas...and doesn't win. Then what?

If he wins one title, it will prove that the best coach in history can win a championship at Texas. Nothing shocking about that. But if he can't...then what?

I'd like to see it happen...both to get Saban away from Bama and to see the spectacle of him at Texas.

I'd like to see it too, although I'd want him to bring success to Texas. But I agree with your point that there's a really good chance that moving to Texas will only diminish his legacy. He can go out on top if he stays at Alabama.

I don't think it would diminish his legacy if he didn't win. I think it would be pretty embarrassing for Texas, though...especially if the SEC wins a few more titles during that span.

Oh, OK. I think it would tarnish his legacy a little bit if he didn't at least win some conference championships considering the expectations and the undeniable fact that there are no real excuses for failure at Texas. But I don't think he'd fail. I think he'd be able to have Texas at the top of the Big12 and in the national championship hunt at a minimum.

I don't think the SEC's fortunes rest on the retention of any single coach. There's no shortage of coaches in conferences like the Big 12 that would leave their current schools to coach in the SEC and the conference will continue to field a disproportionate share of the best football teams in the country with or without Saban.

It would be interesting for sure. It's hard to say what Texas has in terms of talent on their roster. They have rolled through the Big 12, but they lost to BYU and Ole Miss by a combined 40 points.

They will be 6-0 in the Big 12 after Saturday. Then, they get a good Oklahoma State team at home, an okay Tech team at home, and a tough game at Baylor to end the season. If they win out (10-2), Big 12 champs, Orange Bowl...they can't fire Mack, can they? Even if they drop one game, they are a bowl win away from 10 wins.

On the flip side, they could lose two of three to finish 8-4...and then lose a bowl game to go 8-5. If that happens, you have to wonder if they have the horses needed to win right away.

If Saban can walk into an Ohio State type situation, he might take it. If he sees it as a full blown rebuild, I'm not so sure a guy who will be 63 next season wants to take that on.

Speaking of networks, what was up with the KU game the other night? Was it televised? I heard a lot of people bitching about it.

Yeah, that all makes sense. I have to think that they have talent on their roster even if it doesn't perform for Brown late this season (not sure about QB though), but it's kind of hard to see a scenario where they do bad enough to get Brown fired now. It would be nice if Brown decided to retire on his own, but that's probably wishful thinking.
