Okay, I wasn’t going to post anymore today, but I simply can’t resist this.
A few days after Alabama won the 2013 national championship, a University of Texas regent and a former regent talked with Nick Saban’s agent about the possibility of the Crimson Tide coach replacing Longhorns coach Mack Brown, The Associated Press has learned.
And this is so Jimmy Sexton:
Whether Sexton initiated the contact with Texas is unclear. He did not return a telephone message from the AP on Thursday. Alabama spokesman Jeff Purinton also declined comment.
Hall said a person he would not identify called him, unsolicited, and proposed an introduction to Sexton.
The only thing missing is a bone to throw Houston Nutt.
Needless to say, it would be a lot of fun to see this story develop legs, especially during the season. But I’m not holding out much hope of that.
