Nick Saban Is The Most Delusional Coach In College Football
Nick Saban hates the new era of college football. NIL has changed the game. Alabama benefited from it which is not a surprise to anyone with a pulse. But still, Saban has been knocking on the door of college football getting back to the days of old. This sounds like your dad who is pining for the days when kids were not buried in their devices and didn’t have AirPods everywhere you went. But it is one of the more ridiculous statements that anyone could make. The parity in college football hasn’t existed in a long, long time. Not even in the SEC. Alabama has multiple winning streaks against SEC opponents. For Saban to talk about parity is like me giving out diet tips. This man wants it to sound good without any real backing.
"One of the things I like to see us be able to work back to is everything in CFB has always had parity."

Since 2006, the SEC or ACC has won every single national championship besides the year Ohio State beat Oregon. Other than that, it has been dominated by two conferences. Alabama won multiple times. The same goes for Clemson. Georgia will likely try to do a repeat this year, and it’s not unrealistic for then. College football’s last time of ‘parity’ in their sport was the initial inception of the BCS. If you look at that, you had multiple conferences winning titles with multiple programs. USC is the only school to win multiple titles during that time period of 1998-2005.
I don’t know if a 12-team playoff will help with the parity. Part of me feels like it has to. The experts in college football say it’s going to end up being the two top teams regardless. That is a bit short-sighted when you look at all of the other playoffs around you including the NCAA Tournament.
Can’t wait for Bama-Georgia-Ohio State and some random fourth team like almost every fucking year in college football.
