This is good. A bit surprising, but really good. Pederson getting canned in Philly could be good news for Bama.
You know it seems like that Saban and Sark had a pretty straight up relationship. Sark would understand that if it is a lateral Saban would frown on it but if a true career opportunity he might be more open to enabling it. This does not have the feel of some dishonest back channel process but I am not an insider.
Probably so, but I don't think he was going to bother with a bidding war if it came down to that. But, while Alabama was undefeated this year, there's something else that's always undefeated too. In this case, that was also a draw for him to return to Texas. Bottom line, he came to UA as a very good recruiter, but Saban/UA made him elite. Same will do the same with a replacement.
Not sure I am following what you are saying with what I highlighted. Oh I definitely agree with you about bidding war and Saban/UA makes a good recruiter great. They indeed have a great product to sell.
I understand the downside of losing great recruiters....Banks is one....
