I wonder where Nick Saban will coach after he gets fired from Alabama.
As Alabama receiver Matt Caddell walked off the Bryant-Denny Stadium turf for his last time as a player, the Tide senior saw one sight that will stick in his mind for the rest of his life:
The scoreboard: Louisiana-Monroe 21, Alabama 14.
â€œItâ€™s kind of crazy,â€ Caddell said afterward, still in a daze. â€œI donâ€™t know. Itâ€™s just real crazy.â€
Wow, what a disaster.
I am one of those who thought Shula should have been given one more year to get the team into a consistent shape. Instead, they’ve had to effectively start over with Saban, and it shows. Painfully.
But, let us not forget, this is Alabama football:
â€œBy winning next week, a lot of people will forget about this loss,â€ Tide senior cornerback Simeon Castille said. â€œSo we just have to go back to work and get better.â€
For Saban’s longevity as a coach at Alabama, he better hope he wins against Auburn next weekend.
Ah well, here’s hoping for a better season next year.
