    Saban saying Bama doesn't deserve NCG?

    "Anyone who doesn't win their conference, has no business playing in the national championship." - Nick Saban 2003 (head coach of LSU about playing Oklahoma who lost to KSU in the Big 12 championship)

    Anyone else find this a little interesting seeing the position he's in now?

    Just par for the course for him.

    "I guess I have to say it," Saban said. "I'm not going to be the Alabama coach."

    Re: Saban saying Bama doesn't deserve NCG?

    Probably not a real quote, but I agree with it. I can't rememver the year, but As much as I root for the Big XII, when OU lost the championship game, then got to play in the NC, I thought that was wrong. That should be the first criteria, imo. Maybe, you could make a case for your conference championship being your only loss, but to not even play in the conference championship definitely should be automatic out.

    Re: Saban saying Bama doesn't deserve NCG?

    Yeah this quote has been given to Saban on message boards many times before, however, I have never seen it actually linked to the origination.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Re: Saban saying Bama doesn't deserve NCG?

    The quote is from 2003 and its an interpolation of his comments.

    Bowled Over By Controversy - CBS News

    Its referring at the time to Oklahoma getting waxed by KSU in the big 12 championship, and still getting into the championship instead of USC i believe....


    here's an actual quote...
    "I don't think anyone will know who the legitimate national champion is unless all three teams in consideration get the opportunity to play one another," LSU coach Nick Saban said.

    Oklahoma made the BCS title game despite getting walloped by Kansas State 35-7 in the Big 12 championship Saturday night, becoming the second team in three years to play for the national championship without winning its own conference.

    Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese, the coordinator of the BCS, said requiring a team to win its conference is just one possible change to the system next year.


    The irony is this was suggested in 2003 and they never made the change...this would have solved this issue.....

    Dont get me wrong, still think sabans a D-bag!!!! Ever since i saw his ballot, i knew who he truly was.....
