Expert predicts Alabama will wins title, Saban retires for TV

FOX Sports analyst Tom Brando gave his predictions for the upcoming college football season. And, wow, are they ever bold. If you are an Alabama Crimson Tide football fan, you may not like what you are about to read next.

Brando was giving his thoughts on who will win the national title during the 2015 season.

In his eyes, it will be the TCU Horned Frogs who ultimately fall short as the No. 2 team in the country, while Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide once again top the college football world as the national champions.

It would be the fourth national title for Saban since joining Alabama and his fifth overall.

While Alabama winning the national title doesn’t seem like much of a stretch, what Tom Brando had to say next came as a bit of a surprise.

Brando predicted that after Alabama wins the College Football Playoff that 63-year-old Saban will retire from coaching for a career in the television booth.

Very interesting.

So @TimBrando has just predicted that Alabama will win the national championship in 2015, and Nick Saban will leave to work in television

Saban has always been impressive during his appearances as a guest, so the transition could be a natural one.
