to see why the lick might appeal to the58-year-old Saban, who has been knownto switch allegiances. “It was a great es-cape or him,” said Terry, who also sworethat Nick’s cellphone was turned o or theentire two hours and 40 minutes. Asked i her husbandever totally lets go o his job—lately a hot topic inhis line o work—Terry an-swered, “Not really enough.The 32-day preparation orthis game: [He was] burn-ing the candle at bothends.” Then, unprompted,she expressed concern orher husband’s biggest rival.“I really eel or [Floridacoach] Urban Meyer, andunderstand and empathize with him and hisamily.

this season? Thedeending national championGators went into the SEC cham-pionship game on Dec. 5 as solid avoritesto beat Alabama and continue their marchto a third national title in our seasons. Butthere was Tim Tebow with two minutes let, weeping on the Florida bench, his team onits way to a crushing 32–13 loss. At 4:27the ollowing morning, Shelly Meyer dialed911, calmly explaining to the operator thather husband, Urban, had awakened withchest pains, then allen to the bedroom oor, where he was breathing but unresponsive.Could Florida’s all have been more pre-cipitous? The last time a burgeoning dynasty  was taken down this quickly and efciently,Michael Corleone was attending his nephew’s baptism. No doubt the Gators have circledOct. 2 on their calendars; that’s when Florida visits Tuscaloosa or the frst regular-seasonmeeting between the schools since 2006.But who will be calling the shots on theFlorida sideline that aternoon? In the daysater Meyer retired, then went on “indefniteleave” in the wake o his medical emergency, we learned that even though his heart washealthy, he’d been experiencing chest pains ortwo years. At a Sugar Bowl press conerence beore the New Year’s Day game, the 45-year-old Meyer revealed that his gut told him he’d be back coaching next season, a vow he has re-peated to recruits. Thoseassurances appear to behelping the Gators holdon to what is shaping upto be one o the nation’stop classes. As it happens,Saban is on a pretty air recruiting streak himsel.“I guarantee you,” said a smiling Terry Saban, as she watched her spouse o 38 years,“he’s already thinking about next week.”Did the couple have plans? “He said he’llgive me two days,” Terry said, “and then hehas to meet with some o the players aboutgoing out or the [NFL] drat.”Two days? “Two days,” she re-peated. “And I’ll take it.”Maybe they’d go to the movies,she said.

second time in six years the stern-lookingcoach stood on a stage surrounded by overjoyedathletes, holding a crystal ootball over his head. AsNick Saban dutiully went down the list o dignitar-ies he needed to thank, the expression on his acecould best be described as a kind o semigrimace. At the pinnacle o his sport ater leading Alabamato its frst national title in 17 years—a 37–21 victory over a woundedTexas team in the BCS championship game last Thursday night atthe Rose Bowl—Saban reminded us that those best equipped to winchampionships are oten the least equipped to celebrate them.
