VIDEO: Nick Saban on conference champions-only playoff: "Hell no"

By Jerry Hinnen | College Football Writer
It was just yesterday that Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany told the AP that he wasn't a fan of "some teams that don't win their own division" playing for a national championship--a team, like, say, Alabama.

So maybe it's coincidence and maybe it's not that on the Tim Brando Show Thursday, Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban fired away -- or possibly "back" -- at "some of these people in these leagues" who out of "self-preservation purposes" have proposed limiting the coming playoff to conference champions only. And does Saban think such a plan would "accomplish what we set out to accomplish" in the overhaul of the BCS?

"Hell no," he said. Your move, Mr. Delany.

Watch the full interview here:



And for the rest of Saban's appearance on the show, which includes comments on the SEC's future schedules and why nine games is one too many, watch here:
