Saban leaves. Who replaces?

**preview of a post for Tuesday**

So just hours after Alabama tarnished the golden domers in an unspeakable fashion (we told y'all to stay away from Coral Gables' miniature burger eateries), head coach Nicholai Saban leaves to coach the New England Patriots. Surprise y'all! Reminds me of that day in 2002 when Spurrier resigned. Bedlam in the streets! Dark clouds lifted! Life anew in the southeast!

"Frumpy chic" is in this winter. 
So...who's next in Tuscaloosa? Of course it didn't take long to dispel the rumor that Bill Belichick was heading to Alabama when he promptly said he would finish the season in New England and then open his own clothing line alongside Giselle BΓΌndchen. 

Pick up your jaw Brady. Everyone saw that coming.

That leaves a laundry list of coaching candidates; everyone has put their name in the hat, from the absurd in Derek Dooley to the mundane in Houston Nutt. Still there's some intriguing names popping up on the radar. Wonder who PAAAAWWWWLLL!!! will pick?

  • Kirby Smart - too easy
  • Vince Lombardi - too dead
  • Major Applewhite - too young
  • Bill Parcells - too old
  • Gene Chizik - too available
  • Mark Richt - too nice
  • Bill Cowher - too unproven
  • Chip Kelly - too wide open
  • Willie Joe - too drunj
Gonna be an interesting ride. If you hear of any other names, throw em in the comments.
