Whether or not there was ever any truth to the idea that Alabama head coach Nick Saban might be leaving for Texas, Crimson Tide fans are ecstatic that he’ll be staying in Tuscaloosa for the long term. One storage company even took out a billboard advertisement to poke fun at the old “Don’t Mess With Texas” adage.

There are two ways of looking at this, however. You can argue that Texas DID in fact mess with Alabama, considering the Tide had to pony up more cash in Saban’s new contract. Or, you could argue that Texas couldn’t land the man it wanted. Either way, in reality, everyone got “messed” with.
