...and Kirby Smart listened. I'm going to be short and sweet today and just do a little hypothetical analysis of yesterday's events.
KIRBY: Coach Saban, I really appreciate everything you have done for me, but I am going back to coach at my alma mater.
SABAN: I don't allow lateral moves son. Stay here and get 10% credit for my defense. I'll give you more money, and we'll both look good.
KIRBY: But, Coach Saban, at UGA I can make a name for myself.
SABAN: Listen to me Kirby, if you go there and suck you're done.
KIRBY: But, I know I will be a good defensive coordinator coach Saban.
SABAN: Kirby, you are a defensive coordinator.
KIRBY: What, really? I thought that was just a title for me, I don't make any decisions about the Alabama defense.
SABAN: Yes you do Kirby! Remember that time I let you pick the color socks our team would wear against LSU so that you could motivate the defense?
KIRBY: I guess you're right Coach, I'll stay at Alabama.
SABAN: I know you will Kirby, and I will tell the country about it because I don't want them thinking you have any more control over Alabama and it's affairs. I'll let you know when it's time Kirby.
KIRBY: Thanks dad, I mean Coach.
