    So does Saban watch the game tonight?

    Or is he casting spells somewhere?

    He's watching with the coach lady. "Could it be ... Saban?"

    He's at the game and a guest commentator for ESPN.

    Doesn't mean he is "watching" the game . He could be busy "politicking" with whatever administrator is at the game. Nothing wrong with getting an early start at lobbying for a place in next year's playoffs .

    During the post game it was fun watching Saban sitting beside Jimbo as the latter accepted the accolades and gushed over his team, coaches, fans, etc. Saban stiffly nodding in agreement.

    Well the final BCS NCG didn't go according to "script" (aka Auburn winning the game and the SEC 8 in a row), so ESPN was left scrambling trying to come up with enough positive things to say on the air. I suspect the only reason Saban was invited is because ESPN was bannking on Auburn winning and they could fill up a lot of the time talking about how the state of Alabama has "dominated" college football the last 5 years. Ironically during this conversation UAB, Troy, and South Alabama are no longer located in the state. They would be located in either Florida, Georgia, or Mississippi .

    You do realize that Fisher is a Saban protege, and that Saban is likely proud of his accomplishments?

    Yes but I also know Saban is a competitive SOB who wanted to be in the winner's circle himself.
