Folk Blues: You could see Bama matching a huge Texas offer of 10/100?
No I don't, but as the wife issue has been brought up, we can't evaluate the offer strictly on money. If Alabama offers 7 per and Terry is happy in Tuscaloosa and doesn't want to leave for Austin, what can 10M/year do for you that 7M/year can't? That's what I meant when it comes to Alabama offering money at least somewhat close to Texas' offer.
The wild card here is the LHN percentage, if that's actually on the table to begin with. Have to imagine that it's an invaluable piece of property that is truly unique in CFB, no one else can offer something as valuable as that. If it's really there for Saban to have, you have to imagine it will be Nick Saban doing the heavy lifting in convincing Terry that the move is for the best, rather than letting the money speak for itself.
