Seeing as how his team just won a national title without winning the SEC, I don’t think it comes as a surprise to anyone that Nick Saban isn’t exactly enamored with the concept of a conference champs-only playoff.
But that’s because it’s all about you, SEC, not him.
“I don’t think there’s a parity in college football like there is in the NFL, where you can make a statement like that. No disrespect to any conference, but there are conferences that are in the BCS that if they played in the SEC their champion may be in fourth or fifth place. So because there’s not a parity, I don’t think it’s fair to make a statement like that.”
Honestly, there’s nothing in that quote with which I can disagree. Except that Scott’s proposal isn’t as much about making sure the playoffs have the best field as it is making sure the wealth gets spread around.
