Nick Saban to Texas rumor came from guy who doesn’t have enough info to write a story

Nick SabanUntil Nick Saban makes an announcement about his future, there are going to be plenty of rumors about whether he is leaving Alabama for Texas. The difficult (and fun) part is trying to decipher what is B.S. and what is a reflection of reality.

The latest Saban to Texas rumor came on Tuesday from Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Stevenson caused the Internet to go crazy when he said a Texas source told him Saban would be the next Texas coach.

That’s a pretty bold tweet, but after realizing what he had done, Stevenson seemed to back it up a few steps.

Hmm, if you don’t have enough info for a story, how can you tweet something? And if you have enough info for a tweet, isn’t that enough info for a story? Maybe I’m missing something here.

I’m on record saying I think the Nick Saban to Texas rumors are a play by the Alabama coach’s agent to get more money from the Crimson Tide rather than a legitimate indication of what will happen. I do believe that the Texas job intrigues Saban, but I don’t think he’ll leave Alabama to take the position.

Whatever the case, this is shaping up to be an exciting week.
