Now that Alabama has jumped the latest hurdle and Saban has signed another contract to coach at Alabama, it's got me to thinking about the future.  This question is hosted in the Alabama forum so no trolling.

Who could replace this slightly autistic wunderkind that's been given the keys to the kingdom?

Who would replace Saban?

Who could handle absolute power without crash and burning?  I've started to imagine worst case scenarios where Saban can't even handle this type of power and it ends like Woody Hayes... slugging a player on the sideline.

My arrogant question scares even me.  

How do we freely hand over total and complete control of a dynasty to simply continue the process that Saban has started?  One thing I know for certain is Saban will be tempted the same time next year from another football program, so who would you hire?

I figue Nick will stay til age 65 when he can get on Medicare so that's 3 years.

Beliema will have built Arkansas up by then and just when we look like we're fixin to make some serious noise y'all will hire him from us and we'll wind up with a burned out Gus after his stint in Texas.sigh.

Bama is playing a dangerous game. Saban has so much control that Bama is forgetting what it's like to have some of that control. That leaves the door open for some major booster meddling when the next guy comes in.

And lets face it...the next guy won't hold Saban ball sac as far as success.


EDIT: Gus is "tickled" to be in Auburn Hog, didn't ya hear? :trollface:
