07:19 AM ET 06.14 | It's a nice line, one Alabama fans have heard before, only not from this source. On Thursday, Texas A&M athletic director Eric Hyman was speaking to the Brazos County A&M Club Coach's Night. According to the San Antonio Express-News, he started with, "What do the moon and Texas A&M have in common? They both control the Tide." ... [Hyman] then told coach Kevin Sumlin he "wants to be able to say the same thing" in a year. "No pressure, Eric. Thank you," said a light-hearted Sumlin. Then Twitter got a hold of it and that's where the fun started. Take a look. Paul Finebaum tweeted, "Nick is going to be mad!" A&M president R. Bowen Loftin -- who according to the report -- was in attendance at the event and tweeted: "Paul, he is already mad."

Nick may get mad, but he seldom displays it. What Nick does is analyze, prepare, and bring a game plan and ready team to the next meeting.

Let's ask Les Grass Muncher to chime in.

It's hard to beat Saban twice in a row.

And having an open week prior to the A&M game doesn't hurt either.

The only thing Saban is mad about is the photo FN keeps using. He's also tired of the blue jacket.

You're right. He doesn't appear too happy.

The A&M and Bama game will be one of the most watched of the season. Can't wait!

Should be a good one.


A word of advice to the agnut AD -- with reports of the NoFunLeague sniffing around your hotstuff HC, I'd be a little nicer to him in public, AND in private as well.

Not really on the jacket. He still wears it.

We lose the battles but win the war. It is what it is.

He's gone before long anyway.

The fine Sheeple of Bryan-College Station, Texas will welcome the Tide with open arms.

3-4 years, probably.

Deduction: The missus likes the way it looks on him.

Saban reminds me of a younger Mac Brown.. along with all the hype. Let's look at what Mac is doing for his team now, so we can see the future of the Tide in a few years.
