Nick Saban is pissed off and he wants you to know it. He’s pissed off because football is a game and it’s supposed to be fun—fun for his players, fun for his coaches, fun for him. How dare people say they’re frustrated with an ugly win? How dare they?
There is a simple solution for college football’s first Division I playoff. If they really want to bring the best four teams to the table to duke it out for the closest thing we’ve ever had to something that isn’t a mythical national championship, then why not invite the top four teams from the SEC West Division? Of course, they won’t do that because the folks at Oklahoma, Oregon and Florida State would suddenly go into a state of apoplexy, but you can make a strong case that the Southeastern Conference deserves two seats at the Final Four table and both of those teams should be from the SEC West.
