Here we go again, some clown local reporter from Indianapolis says he thinks Colt’s owner Jim Irsay will go after Nick Saban.  He’s apparently basing this dreams, wishes, and a gut feeling.  Solid stuff there.

When Titan’s coach Ken Whisenhunt was fired the Nick Saban to the Titans rumors were started almost immediately, mostly by fans of Tennessee. Here are seven reasons why Nick Saban isn’t going to leave Alabama for the Tennessee Titans job, or the Colts job, or any other job.

I made this venn diagram to help explain how seriously you should take Nick Saban is leaving rumors.

#1 Saban isn’t leaving Alabama.

Nick Saban isn’t leaving Alabama.  He’s just not.  Saban has been at Alabama since 2007; Nick Saban will have been with Alabama for nine years this January.  After nine years you’d think people would stop assuming he’s going to jump ship the first chance he gets, but then you’d be giving people far too much credit.

If Nick Saban stayed at Alabama until he was 100 and died at his desk then LSU fans would be like “WE TOLD YOU HE WAS GOING TO LEAVE” the next day.

Nick Saban’s kids went to Alabama and he has a grandchild in Birmingham. Nick Saban isn’t going to leave Alabama easily, his family has roots here.

Nick and Terry Saban have also donated heavily to the “Saban Catholic Student Center” which is being built at St. Francis on campus.  The Saban’s have a strong connection to their Tuscaloosa church family as well.

So the Sabans now not only have strong ties to the university, but to Tuscaloosa, and the state of Alabama.

No matter how badly folks want to point to Nick Saban leaving Miami after nine years it’s obvious Nick Saban has found a home.
