I've got The Herd playing on ESPNU, & according to Collin Cowherd, there's rumors of Nick Saban leaving Alabama for the NFL again. They think the Browns might actually go after him at the end of the season. To me, that would make sense since cleveland has his former RB Trent Richardson, a potential franchise QB in Weeden, & most importantly, the makings of a potentially great Defense. So basically we have everything he would be looking for, & you can't underestimate the value of Joe Thomas & Alex Mack, Saban loves to have a good O-line. He would know all about how to put Richardson in the best posistion to be successful, & that would make Brandon Weeden even better. I really think this could happen, & I wouldn't beleive Saban if he says it wont happen. Remember that he told all the media that he wouldn't be leaving the NFL to coach the Crimson Tide. Cowherd also makes a good point as well: Saban runs an NFL style defensive scheme & offense. He wanted to bring Drew Brees to Miami when he was the coach, but they gave him Dante Culpepper. The fanatasism in Alabama has already reached levels where he really can't even go to the supermarket, he has an eye for talent, & he's just better suited for the NFL. He just didn't get the QB he wanted. I know he's not the best guy character wise, but he runs a hell of a football team. This would be good for the Browns & Ohio State when it comes to recruiting. All we can do is hope Meyer never pulls something like that.
