    I asked this in the RR thread, but I think it can stand to be a separate thread...

    RR has turned them down. Does Mal Moore go back to Saban? Does Joe Kines get a shot? Kragthorpe? Nutt? The head coach at Hoover High?

    I bet a call will be made to Saban's agent, but I think Alabama would look even worse if it had to pay $5 million a year to get a big-name coach.

    He's never been a head coach, but I'd take a hard look at LSU offensive coordinator/QB coach Jimbo Fisher.

    Nutt would be nuts not to take Alabama (not that he'll get offered, but it's possible). He idolizes the Bear's legacy and Arkansas is about to be very unhappy with the way he is running off Mustain, Ark. high school hero QB. Even money.

    Any chance Bobby Petrino finally is stupid enough to leave Louisville?

    Though it would never happen ... does Mal Moore call Jimmy Johnson?

    They could do worse than Paul Johnson, but I'd hate for a good dude like him to get involved in that cesspool.

    Not the right place, I guess, but did anybody notice that UAB's Watson Brown is finalizing a deal to be coach at ...

    Tennessee Tech.

    I would be happy if anyone hauled Mark Mangino out of Lawrence.

    I wish I was joking

    Isn't there some talk of him winding up at UAB?

    Not a bad idea, and I like Jimbo, but two things I think you can book about the next Alabama head coach: a) he won't be named Mike (as in Price or Shula) and b) will have already been a head coach somewhere. They're not going to hire another Mike for awhile (sorry, Mike Leach), and they're not going to hire another guy who hasn't been a head coach.

    Jimbo would have been interested in the WVU job had Rodriguez gone to Alabama, but he's got other options.
