The potential loss of Bigsby and auburn's two tackles would be a much bigger blow than Bama losing Saban for this game. Now, I'd rather Saban be on the sidelines for a number of reasons, but it just shouldn't matter too much. Also, you're kidding yourself if you don't think he will have some communication with the staff if/when needed. And while I expect Bigsby to play, will he be 100%? It sounds like the two tackles are much more iffy though, and if they don't play, that sets up really well for the Tide defense. Their absence would allow much more flexibility from Golding in his calls. Regardless of who plays though, I hope to see Bama survive the scripted shit storm and then beat them down in a way that will demoralize their souls to the point that their lives will remain unfulfilled and empty for eternity.
