Last Friday, Nick Saban’s Alabama team was on the winning end of another blowout College Football Playoff semifinal game, with the Crimson Tide defeating Cincinnati 27-6 to advance to the national championship game on Monday, Jan. 10 against Georgia — which rolled over Michigan in the other CFP semifinal, 34-11.
Of course, talks continue about possible expansion of the CFP from the current four-team format. On Monday, Saban gave his thoughts on the state of the playoff and was asked by a reporter if he feels the playoff being expanded to 12 teams would possibly help create more competitive games, or if a 12-team format would diminish the meaning of regular season/bowl games too much.
People pushing for CFP expansion won’t like Saban’s comments.
Nick Saban asked if CFP expansion could help avoid semifinal blowouts: "If this is the best four teams and they played each other, I don’t see the logic that if we had more teams, they would be better games. I don’t see how that adds up."

Saban was asked about CFP expansion and he's talking around it, but he did say: "The more we expand playoffs the more we minimize bowl games, the importance of bowl games, which I said when we went to four. I don't think that's changed, and I think it's also come to fruition."
