some of this will depend on how long he stays, but do you think would get named after him? Will Bryant-Denny ever become Bryant-Saban Stadium? We already have Stallings field. I'm just curious as to what you guys think.
It must be off-season
nah field and stadium wont change.. those are set... im sure CNS will have a few places named after him before its all said and done but the field and stadium are landmarks and wont change.

Our visitors locker room was named "The Fail Room" after a donor whose last name. We could name the home locker room "The Saban Room"
I think it would take a bit more for him to get his name on something of that magnitude (even though what he has done has been unbelievably great). A guy like Wallace Wade won 3 championships in 8 years and we don't see his name on the stadium.
The thing that helps Saban though, if the time came to make such a decision, is that he has strong public opinion on his side. And in this day and age, public opinion carries a lot more weight than it ever has before, simply because of how easily and freely the public can communicate with and have access to the decision-makers.
I'm assuming Saban will probably coach a maximum of 12 years, so personally, I feel that 4 championships in that time frame would make Saban more than eligible to replace Denny as a stadium namesake. We already have Denny Chimes, so I don't believe removing his name from the stadium would be a complete slap-in-the-face or anything.
It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Denny should take his chimes and be happy.
The Academic center is a great idea IMO, the way Coach Saban develops his players off the field I feel like that would be something he would like to have named after him if he wanted it...
"Stallings Field at Bryant-Denny Stadium"
Bring on the boos...
