So who is the coach who thinks Texas A&M is the nation’s best college football team? Well, let’s see. Nick Saban has a vote. The Aggies got one vote for number one in this week’s polls. Alabama suffered not at all despite not playing a game last week.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
ESPN media gadfly and rebel-rouser Paul Finebaum announced some shocking news on his Twitter account regarding Alabama head football coach Nick Saban his future.
Perhaps, it's early to pile on Mack Brown, but a reliable source tells me Nick Saban will be visiting in Texas by as early as this Friday.

Now, why would Saban...
Mack Brown's seat at Texas is growing hotter by the second thanks to an embarrassing loss to BYU Saturday night. He fired assistant Manny Diaz after the Longhorns defense allowed 550 rushing yards and now speculation is already beginning on who's going to replace Brown when he is inevitably sacked.
Texas is one of the most lucrative jobs in the country. A huge school...
To talk with Alabama players and coach Nick Saban on Monday, you got the feeling they barely know who Johnny Manziel even is.
They lost to him last year? Really? I'm not sure Alabama remembers. No one admitted to watching Texas A&M play Saturday while Alabama had a week off. And if they looked at video of last year's game, that was sort of a fuzzy memory.
Paul Finebaum trolled Texas, Mack Brown and their fans about Nick Saban coming to Texas (the state). Apparently, he also trolled Sports Illustrated and they have some egg on their face.Read more →
Much has been made of the trend in college football to run a fast-tick offense, the Hurry-Up-No-Huddle or Tempo Offense. Alabama Coach Nick Saban is not a proponent of the scheme, primarily because his background is defense and by denying the defense the opportunity to make substitutions, it limits defensive strategy.
On September 3rd, at 2:00 pm CT, Kenny Bell, one of Alabama’s best wide receivers, made an announcement on Twitter by tweeting several times that he was retiring his senior year. He tweeted: “…It’s been a nice run but I’m hanging up my cleats,” as well as tweeting: “Time to focus on my responsibilities MY KIDS.” He sent an encouraging tweet to all of his teammates...
The game has been both inescapable and all encompassing.
Texas A&M 29, Alabama 24
It plays on televisions in the Crimson Tide's weight room -- where Aggies logos are on each machine -- and Nick Saban, so famous for his 24-hour rule for his players to either celebrate a win or wallow in defeat, admitted in May that preparing for the Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel...
Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper insists this Texas A&M game is not about revenge.
Nick Saban said it's important to keep the approach businesslike and that the football field is no place for trash talk. Quarterback AJ McCarron believes his friendship with Texas A&M counterpart Johnny Manziel is overblown.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide and No. 6 Aggies are finally getting...
Alabama Coach Nick Saban announced Monday that redshirt freshman defensive end Dalvin Tomlinson had "a very successful surgery," but that Tomlinson would be lost to the Crimson Tide for a long period.
He was a combination of Bo Jackson and Tommie Frazier on this run.
The kid is named John David Taylor and he is from Alabama, meaning Nick Saban has already offered him a scholarship.
