I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.

You have to stop talking about money and talent pools. Neither make a good argument on this subject. Again, not saying he is coming or going here but you have to look at this not from a "fans" perspective but from a "business" perspective.
This is not about money. He will get that anywhere. This is not about talent pools. I would argue Texas has more. I will simply copy and paste from my earlier post on this topic since my thoughts are the same...
"People talk about Bama matching dollar for dollar anyone in the Country. I say this is not about money. Saban will get his. Saban cannot keep winning NC's in the SEC. He wont, and it will stop. Saban could do very well in the B12, PAC12 of BIG though.
Any good Business mind would say never take a job at it's peak, never stay longer at a job than you need to and always build momentum with your next move/role. Saban is a business man and has zero to gain at Bama unless he is close to retirement."
I agree... I think people assume that Saban will just keep on winning National Championship after National Championship in the SEC. But he won't... The competitors all have the same or similar resources and talent pools to choose from. They all have the same ability to produce. They are evolving and changing to meet those demands.
Hell, even tOSU is focusing considerably on beating 'BAMA...
Saban has a good thing in 'BAMA no doubt. But it does have a shelf life. He can sustain his brand and legacy by moving to a program like TX. They can provide him the same opportunities in a new arena. Lets not pretend Urban Meyer didn't do the same thing when he came here.
Like buckalum, I'm not saying this will happen. I'm not even saying it should happen. I'm saying its certainly within the realm of possibility and there is good logic to support it.
