Nick Saban just finished a 24-minute news conference covering a wide range of topics. The BCS was certainly addressed.
Saban got fired up when asked about voters who might not want to see an Alabama-LSU rematch in the title game.
The best two teams should play for the crystal football, he said. Period. It wouldn’t be fair to anyone involved if anyone voted with an agenda, he said.
“I guess it’s their choice to do it. It’s a free country. But the whole thing should be based on who’s the best two teams. Isn’t that what it’s supposed to be? If it’s not on that, then it doesn’t matter whether we’ve played before or any of that. Who’s the best two teams? That’s the question.
“If the decision gets made on that, I’ll be fine with that. If it gets made on some of this other stuff, that’s not fair. It’s not fair to the players, and it wouldn’t be fair to their players either.
“If they didn’t get picked because of a rematch or whatever, it wouldn’t be fair to their players. It wouldn’t be fair to anybody.”
Stay tuned for the BCS announcement coming next Sunday after the final weekend of action.
