Yet another news item to make 'Bama fans cringe...


...and Nick Saban grind his teeth in frustration. After all, these types of stories are NOT part of the process.

As reported on SI Wire, The agent for Alabama head coach Nick Saban told University of Texas officials in January that it was the only school he would consider leaving Alabama for and that his success with Alabama had put him under "special pressure,"

Not sure what his agent meant by "special pressure" but I have to wonder if it's Bama code for, "My client is the best thing to ever happen to your school/state/conference. Now cough up some more dough or we'll start floating stories that Nick has always wanted to coach in Auburn."

Sure, it's a move so mercenary it would make Don Corleone blush, but the university did kind of open the door...

For the record, my gut still says that Saint Nick leaving Bama for Texas is a long shot at best (like, 10%, not that anyone cares). Still, watching the fireworks from this latest tidbit outta be worth a few laughs.
