Actually I think Herbstriet said he didn't have any insider, and that Harbaugh was just a guy he thought was a good fit. Neither of the brother would go to Texas. From Super Bowl to Sugar Bowl? That's silly.
I strongly believe Saban is staying at Alabama. I mean they've basically given him the keys to the car which is what you have to do with a coach like him. But still they're paying Kirby Smart, the DC, head coach money. The OC Doug Nussmehier is getting paid head coach money. Both of these guys are going to be head coaches soon but at this time they're some of the best at what they do.
If you go to ESPN top 150 recruits you'll notice over the past 2 years Alabama has committed 18 kids in the top 3 of their position in the country. This class is going to be the best ever. These past 2 classes combined with the Bama locking up those coordinators has to mean something to Saban.
Why go Texas and wear yourself out building something you've already built? There's just simply no reason for it. Everything he needs is at Bama. The challenge is winning #5 and #6.
