Paul Finebaum and Matt Barrie did the Alabama postmortem Sunday morning on The Matt Barrie Show. 

Following Alabama’s 34-24 loss to Texas on Saturday night — a game that saw the visiting Longhorns outscore the third-ranked Crimson Tide 21-8 in the fourth quarter — everyone has asked the same question. Is the Alabama dynasty over?

Has Nick Saban lost his edge? Sports talk TV on Sunday wanted to talk about Saban’s supposed downfall. Finebaum and Barrie ended up down that same rabbit hole.

“He does do commercials with a pretty popular head coach right now,” Barrie quipped, referencing the Aflac commercials where Saban stars alongside Colorado coach Deion Sanders.

Finebaum then said he had a colleague ask him Sunday morning who he thought the top three candidates would be for the Alabama job if Nick Saban hypothetically retired.

“I don’t know if Prime is on that list or not, but why not?” Finebaum said.

Barrie said each of the 10 biggest programs in college football right now, if they were thrust into a spot where they had to hire a new coach, should have Sanders as their No. 1 call.

“When I was trying to think of some of the names, they’re all just nice coaches but none of them have the star power,” Finebaum said. “I mean, quite frankly, Nick Saban doesn’t have the star power that Deion Sanders has right now.”

What a meteoric rise for Coach Prime.

Saban, the head coach at Alabama since 2007, has won seven national championships. He took LSU to a national title and then built Alabama into a title-winning machine. He has 10 SEC championships. He has won five SEC Coach of the Year awards. And he has produced 44 first-round NFL Draft picks at Alabama.

But Sanders has more star power right now than Nick Saban?

Colorado is off to a 2-0 start to Sanders’ debut season in Boulder. The Buffs beat Nebraska on Saturday 36-14 and moved up to No. 18 in the latest AP Top 25 poll — the program’s highest ranking since 2016.

Sanders’ son, quarterback Shedeur Sanders, is a Heisman Trophy threat. The offense is electric. There isn’t a team in college football right now that is hotter than Colorado.

But Sanders’ immediate success means he’ll be talked about for bigger jobs. One program alum even offered up $100,000 on Sunday to kickstart a campaign to keep Sanders in Boulder on a long-term contract.
