Nick Saban has many reputations, including not running the score up on opponents.

I don't think that Saban will take his foot off the gas just because he feels sorry for the hapless Hogs. He don't play that game. I honestly don't think the hapless Hogs will score a point. I do see the Tide covering the 29 1/2 point spread though.

Buyout? If the bus is about to leave Fayetteville, Jeff Long should be the first on it....Do you seriously trust this man to hire the next coach?

It's going to be ugly regardless. I will be surprised if Arkansas even scores until Saban puts in his second team.

Saban should want Bielema to stick around, as he has no problem beating Arkansas year after year. Then again, it probably doesn't matter who coaches Arkansas, Saban will still have little problem.

Oh I hope so! If he doesn't remove 1st team after half will be terrible bloodbath. Maybe he feels like his subs need experience.

Saban's second team is made up of 4 and 5 star players so that won't help the Hogs. Is there still such a thing as a forfeit, say 2-0 ? That would look a lot better than the actual score. Years ago, we could expect the Hogs to pull off an upset, even against a No. 1 team. No more. When they get off the bus I think they know the outcome already.
