The NFL has always been seen as the top tier when it comes to coaching positions. College coaches that do really well tend to eventually try their luck there.

I'm totally ignorant of the NFL...what makes it so attractive?

We all know how Saban and Spurrier both saw fit to head there...but both ended up coming back. Does the NFL pay more? Does it have less stress? What makes it so alluring?

If I were a coach, and I'm sure most of you would agree with me, an SEC job would be my personal pinnacle.

It's the pros, man

Most coaches are egomaniacs and A type personalities

They want to say they are the best

Prestige, the NFL is above the NCAA because they are the pros. Coaches like Bill Belechick, Sean Payton, and other NFL coaches are much more highly regarded than a Nick Saban or Urban Meyer.

This and being able to keep your integral players longer have to be high up on the list.

To coach the highest talent available on earth.

Race car drivers moving up from dirt tracks to faster tracks and faster cars.

Pilots will want to fly bigger faster planes.

Ex: Chip Kelley getting to throw his HUNH at the likes of DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy.

To go against the best. You have to show up every Sunday, even against the Browns.

Personally, the NFL holds no meaning for me.  Even last year when the Falcons were playing good football I could care less.  I usually watch the AFC and NFC championship games but that's about it.

Coaching in the NFL is dramatically different from college and usually not for the better.

and the recruiting grind is significant..............also, with the exception of the top shelf college coaches, it is going to be a pay raise, I believe the going rate for a run of the mill NFL coach is around 4 to 5 million bucks a year

That's the key point I was missing, thanks. No recruiting and being able to keep your players are HUUUUUGE.

You don't have to cover up paying your players.

We won't have to stack the box, our athletes are better. Read the first sentence, Auburn won't have over 175. Bet anything you want, it's not gonna happen. That's the one thing Bama can do without a doubt 100% mark it down, and have been for years.

If you're going to bet, it will be longer than signing day. This is a rivalry that lasts 365 days, you would have to at least keep it until next football season or this isn't even worth mentioning. Besides, Bama could be winning late in the game and the scrubs get the 200.
Either way, it won't be happening to Bama's defense.

That's what I was going to say. You don't have to worry about academic probation or boosters. Basically if they don't fail (several) drug tests or commit a crime that gets them arrested, they can play.
