Alabama update, plus Eddie Gran
Eddie Gran has talked with some people at North Texas about their vacancy. Gran is going to be a very high-profile coach in time, and I think North Texas is a reasonably good place for him to start. There is a recruiting base, of course, and it's a winnable league. Gran is a young guy, a smart coach and understands how to use the media to his advantage.
Chance to leave before next season: 75%
I'm less certain about Al Borges' situation. I think he's an outstanding offensive mind. I'm not sure he's accomplished enough yet to plow his way into a major D-I job like Stanford. If we're talking about a place like San Diego State or the like, well, I'd have a different opinion. Stanford probably is too big of a jump from Auburn O.C., but Borges certainly has the charm to make miracles happen. He has the skills, too. I just don't know if schools will take a risk based on his three years at Auburn. Borges wasn't exactly thriving when Tuberville hired him.
Chance to leave before next season: 20%.
