Nick Saban is still the coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide (for now). So why did Saban get paged at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas on Tuesday morning?
Multiple people have confirmed that Nick Saban was paged at the Austin airport this morning. THAT is hysterical.

The airport is calling for a “Nick Saban” right now….. Wondering if he’s here to visit Texas? 😨

Answer: Saban will leave Alabama to coach the Texas Longhorns for the highest-paying contract in college football history. It makes total sense…
…unless you have a brain, in which case you’d realize that the page was most likely the work of a troll capitalizing on the interest around Mack Brown’s uncertain status as Longhorns’ head football coach.
All Saban to Texas rumors are baseless thus far, but that’s not going to stop the Texas fans — and the Troll Tide contingent — from keeping the rumor mill rolling.
How ridiculous is it? Read these tweets; none of this stuff has been confirmed as true.

My brother in law who works at Austin airport just told me he saw Nick #Saban get off a gulfstream there about 20 minutes ago.

There are supposedly people waiting at the Austin airport to cheer if Saban is getting off a plane. People are insane.

And that’s just in the last 24 hours or so. If Brown is out at Texas, expect these rumors to do nothing but intensify right into bowl season.
