As a Tennessee fan, I've enjoyed the soap opera that is the Alabama football head coach vacancy.
To see Bama turned down by all of their top candidates and then have to throw everything and the kitchen sink at Saban to get him to leave the Dolphins. In a word: hilarious.
I love how Bama fans are so deluded to think that this is some great coaching job and yet no one seemed to want it until they backed up the dump trucks full of cash to Saban's house. Let's face it Bama faithful, the Vols, Auburn, Florida and Georgia have all passed you by as the elite jobs of the SEC.
That said, for four million bucks Saban better be the second-coming of the Bear and win right away or else...
