Hating on his apprentice
There are high stakes for the upcoming SEC championship game between No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia. The winner will play for a national title. The
“It’s not really a great scenario for either team,” he said on a teleconference Sunday. “You play your way into the championship game, which means you’re the best team in your division. It doesn’t seem quite right. I don’t feel good about it for our football team or their football team.”
- Coach Nick Saban

Guy should probably not talk
Since UF has a better record and SOS then Bama nad UGA combined,
so our path to the BCS game was through... 4 top 10 teams
Texas AnM (who Bama couldn't beat)
LSU (who UGA didn't have to play)
South Carolina (who smoked UGA)
I'd say we deserve a BCS game
His comments are especially laughable considering bammer made it to the BCS championship game last year without winning the west. Of course, Saban has always had one set of standards for himself and another set of standards for other people

What a loser. I say he forfeit his Championship trophy from last year and give it to LSU because Bama didn't "play their way into the championship game" and Bama wasn't the "best team in their division"
Saban is a loser.
Saban has spent too much time on BOL IMO.
It has distorted his reasonable thinking.
Since Oregon cant go to the Rose Bowl i would like to see UF vs Oregon in the sugar bowl.
I'm overwhelmed by the irony
If you don't win your conference, you shouldn't be in the championship... starting this year.
Much rather play them than KSU/Oklahoma. Do not want a cakewalk like LU/Rutgers or Kent State.
Muschamp on Saban's comments: "Well, I can switch and go to Atlanta, if you want. Be careful what you ask for, Nick."
The Alabama media wont point out the stupidity of those comments either, because they all either worship Saban or they are scared of him
Saban sounds like Sparty players last year when Michigan got BCS bid.
Lol at those who lol at Saban.
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Pretty simple: UF played UGA for it's side of it's conference title and lost, 17-9. Given we have no better system, the playoffs are each week. By losing to UGA, UF eliminated itself from national title contention.
There is an undefeated team currently ahead of the two teams that are playing for the SECCG. Given UGA beat UF, and Alabama won it's side of the conference, the winner of the SECCG will play the undefeated team for the national title. UF had it's chance when it played UGA, and lost.
not talking about the national championship
he was talking about UF going to a BCS "game" and the looser of the SEc championship game not going to a BCS game
Everyone realizes the team we played by not winning our division was... our division winner, right? And it took a lot of teams above us losing to even get to that point. Having an undefeated team (ND) who is not in the SEC and a team that wins the conference ahead of you is not the same as having... only the team that won the conference ahead of you.
Thank you for whatever that was.
Now can we get back on subject?
No one believes UF would beat Alabama. Your SOS is good because FSU is over inflated as usual. Alabama is going to the SEC championship game. Whoever wins that game is going to the national title game. The Gators are playing for #2. You might wanna wrap your head around that.

Does any Alabama fan actually care what bowl we go to if we lose to Georgia? Yes....I want that intriguing BCS Sugar Bowl with Kent St.
BAMA FANS READ THE TOPIC WE AREN'T TALKING ABOUT THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
we are talking a BCS GAAAAAAAAAME
I'll never turn down a trip to NOLA, though.
I'm going off of what other posters in this thread are talking about, which involved laughing at Saban due to the situation last year, which involved the BCS Title Game... so...
