    He'll be on with Dan LeBatard, his co-host John Weiner aka "Stu Gotz" and Jason Taylor at 4:30 today. This should be very interesting. LeBatard is one of the best and most intelligent interviewers I've ever heard.

    I'll download the Podcast because I am betting Saban hangs up after a Stugotz question.

    Is this going to be one of those interviews where Le Batard is really funny while being a huge *******, or one of those interviews where he just jerks off the guest for a good fifteen minutes? Guess I'll have to tune in to find out.

    Why is that pile of trash getting interviewed on a Dolphins radio station?

    JT always liked Saban and played the politically correct card on Saban when Saban left.

    Lol it's cool. He's clearly a better college coach than he ever was a pro coach...I had no quarrel with him leaving us for Bama whatsoever.

    I did. Not that he left, but the way he did. At least go out with dignity and pride. Don't lie to the face of the fanbase, then leave the organization high and dry. That's cowardly bull****. That said, if he had the balls to stick it out and hire a good GM, he would have had this team competing with the Patriots on a yearly basis. I think his ego was too big to have anyone else share the spotlight with him, though...

    Nick Saban basically admitted that he ****ed up the QB situation, it wasn't fun to have a ****ed up QB situation, and that he quit because he ****ed up the QB situation and he wasn't having fun losing.

    Yep.

    Well the way he did it was scummy, obviously, but to me he wasn't even taking the team in the right direction. Like you said, the ego thing wasn't going to fly in the NFL.

    Actually...It was the best direction seen around here in a decade...Plus if Wayne H hadn't screwed him and us
    on the Drew Brees deal,well,you never know.

    On the air Saban actually revealed that we agreed to terms with Brees and he just failed our physical. First time anyone has actually heard that before.

    No..that was common knowledge...Miami media might have overlooked that,but everyone knew
    Drew failed the physical,our great medical staff would not ok it,so Wayne said no on the contract because without the doctors ok,insurance would not pay if things went bad.

    From what I understood, we were going to offer him but then he failed a physical and not the other way around. Could be mistaken though.

    Wayne vetoed the deal without any doctors signing off because of insurance.
    That's Wayne's screw-up,my problem with Nick was a 2nd for CPep....really??
    I wouldn't have traded a fourth for a healthy CPep...
    Once the Brees deal fell though,I would have just gone with the fifth for Harrington...
    That's basically what we went with in the end anyway.

    My problem with him was him tipping off Belichek about Welker after he left.

    Hated the way the whole Saban thing went but we really dont know what went on behind closed doors. I mean look how our owner and GM went behind Sparano's back to try to hire a coach while he was still in the job, not very classy either. Hell our old owner basically ran Shula out of town with no class at all along with letting Jimmy Johnson and Dave Wanny basicallly force marino to retire

    Finally,a man with some perspective on the Dolphins.It took a lot of people making mistakes over the last decade and a half to get us to where we are at now.

    Nick Saban taught Bill Clinton how to publicly speak.

    (1) Auburn is a bad example....It's not a step up,like Alabama was a step up over Miami.
    (We can fill up a large stadium.)
    (2) 3 Possible titles in 6 years...after what we went though with that idiot Shula...Saban has done his job...What more could you ask for?
    (3) Like LSU before us,,After Nick left,Les Miles,using the same procees kept LSU in the National picture...Kirby Smart will do the same.
    (4) Nick is only going to coach for about five more years...he is 61 now....rebuiding a pro team and then coming back to college..well....there isn't enough time.
    (5) I would say "Thanks Nick...Great Job!"
    (6)Everybody on this board knows I went to Bama,so the word sheep doesn't fit.
    That only goes for people following a failed idea six years later.
    (7)Shut your dirty whore mouth when you speak of the Capstone.
    (8)Bama going for it's 3rd title in 6 years...Miami has missed the playoffs for the 10th
    time in eleven years...and you guys still talk about Saban....So who's the Wolf and who is
    the sheep?...you silly sweater.

    Engineering....my family's steel business did the modifications on the Orange Bowl in the 70's..hence why I'm a Dolphins fan.

    Sorry..but Miami IS the Western Carolina of the NFL.

    Alabama fans have been through what Dolphins fans went through with Saban, except much, much worse. I remember when Dennis Franchione left in the middle of the night to take the Texas A&M job.... literally... left in the middle of the night. There was a time when Franchione's feet couldn't touch pavement in the state of Alabama or he would've had to deal with some trouble from some lunatic fan. I still don't care for him, but I don't hate the guy or try to waste too much time judging him like Dolphin fans do with Saban. Nobody is in a position to do so. Nobody that I know defends Saban because he's Alabama's coach just because they're an Alabama fan. We've always defended him with facts. Period. Just like the guy who wanted to change his handle on here because he didn't like the name he had chosen, Saban realized he wasn't happy in the NFL, and his family wasn't happy in Miami. He only accepted the job in the first place after denying Huizenga at least a half dozen times to begin with.... but Wayne wouldn't quit or accept no for an answer. It was never going to work. Especially when Saban realized he couldn't even hire the coaches he wanted despite being promised "full control". The bottom line is that both sides made mistakes, and the fact that it didn't work out falls on both sides. We can literally discuss every single issue one by one again like we've done several times already, but there would be no point. Nobody is required to like Nick Saban. However, he deserves more slack than what most of the Dolphin fanbase, and hack south Florida media are willing to give. But the reality is it doesn't matter if he gets it or not. Dolphin fans and Dolphin sportswriters will still have to deal with the most poorly run, and most clueless organization in sports... while Nick Saban continues winning championships. Dan Marino didn't last as long as Saban did... for a reason.
