Nick Saban Pays Little Attention to College Football Playoff – Athlon Sports


Alabama head coach Nick Saban doesn’t seem to be too concerned with how the College Football Playoff selection process will ultimately shake out. Saban was quick to dismiss the importance of the rankings and how they may affect the Crimson Tide’s chances of making the playoff.

“We don’t really even care about the national championship,” Saban said. “We’re just focused on getting better each day and playing the best we can in our next game.”

It’s a sentiment that seems to echo what Saban has been saying all season. The veteran coach has consistently downplayed the significance of the playoff and has remained laser-focused on the task at hand.

Saban’s lack of concern for the playoff process is a stark contrast to the mindset of many other coaches and teams around the country. However, with the results that Alabama has produced on the field, it’s hard to argue with Saban’s approach.

The Crimson Tide have been dominant all season and look like a lock to make the playoff regardless of what the rankings may say. Saban’s focus on the team’s day-to-day improvement rather than the playoff selection process seems to be paying off, as Alabama continues to roll through its schedule.

With Saban at the helm, it’s clear that the Crimson Tide are in good hands. And if they continue to play at the level they have been, it’s hard to imagine a scenario where they aren’t a major player in the playoff picture.
