Nick Saban on if Alabama-Clemson playing again for national title is good for college football: "I don’t get too concerned about a lot of other programs"

I think this reflects what I hear from many people. There are still a lot of people – including Nick Saban – who don't understand how the committee comes to its final four teams. https://t.co/B6dp71mFs2

Dabo says if Bama-Clemson IV isn't good for CFB then we should just go back to the old bowl system and "elect" someone national champion in the 2 polls.
