i don't think it will ever happen. saban already found out that he was just a little bitty man in the nfl. it's simple......he can't threaten, bully, boss or intimidate his players in the nfl. if he tries to use those tactics on nfl players, like he does on college kids, the nfl guys will not tolerate that kind of coaching. they'll tell saban where he can go right quick like. nfl players are grown men, making more money than the head coach does, so saban doesn't have any leverage to control the guys with. he found out his tactics wouldn't work at miami, so he got back into college where he could handle the players by intimdation. his coaching method is quite effective in college where the players have almost no choice but to do things like coach saban wants it done. if not, then the players are forced out. they transfer or quit.
Auburn from day one.

May well not happen, but it sure would be nice to hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth across the state as the meltdown begins. if it does happen, it will after the NC, which leaves Bama not being able to get a good coach because hiring window of Dec is over.

Curious to hear Ron's thoughts on this one.
I'm in the camp that believes that he wants to succeed at that level, and if the right situation presented itself (particularly if/when the beat ND), I think he would go. And look, of course as an Auburn fan you want some sort of disruption to the juggernaut the little man has created, but just like at LSU, he will have left a machine that someone, such as Kirby, could build on.
