recap please?

 

Mack making it difficult. MB going to walk away with a lot of money. Still believes Saban will be named coach. Timetable pushed back because of MB. Said he wishes that he had never said 100%. McPhaul says he will have to go into witness protection program if Saban doesn't sign. :D

 

Sounded confident but you can tell that MB dragging this out isn't helping

Thanks for the summary. So should we disregard McPhaul's post earlier in which he said the "Saban to Texas deal is done"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* We've been talking about this for how long? at least 6 weeks...

* My sources have never deviated away from that (Saban to Texas)

* Sources have been standing firm about our chances

* Heard it is "all but a done deal"

* Originally heard announcement will be on Monday (but most likely will be on Tuesday morning now)

* Everything delayed due to Mack holding off on his announcement, has delayed Saban announcement

* "Dominos are beginning to fall"

* "By this time next week we should be sitting pretty"

* "Will not say 100%" -- "removing that term from his vocabulary"

 

* regarding Saban's contract: "there's never been another one like it, half public and half private"

* Includes side deal that may not be known to anyone (???)

 

* "Let's celebrate last year (2013 season) and the last 16 good years Mack has been with us"

 

* Host: what have we done to keep Mack from meddling?

* "The hiring of Patterson alleviated a lot of that, in addition to the new power brokers"

* "Having the new power brokers in charge (hicks brothers and co) ushers in a new area for the University of Texas"

* Says Saban will have the free will to install a "winning environment"

 

* Host: about Mack pushing back for more, what was done today to wrap that up?

* a: "There was delay because Mack was strong-arming us"

* "7-10 year contract at $1m per year"

* "Bigger buyout" and a "position comparable to what they gave DKR"

* Included "private money that had already been poneyed up but that didn't happen, so we had to come up with more money"

* "He made out pretty well" (editorial comment - understatement)

* "He went out kicking and screaming"

* "He got his share" and we should "concentrate on something positive going forward"

 

* "I think once he gets into retirement he will enjoy more life more than he is thinking right now"

* "Last few years have not been kind to Mack ...kind to us...kind to anybody - Mack does not look like he is having fun on the sidelines"

* "Doesn't look like it is fun for him"

 

* "It's time, and i think everyone would agree"

* "That's all i have on that subject to tell you the truth"

 

* Host: Comment about HornSports being all in on Saban from the start

* "Hornsports can have the last chuckle on the whole topic" since they were right from the start

* "If it doesn't, just put me in witness protection program"
