Saban Supports Plus-One

By Edward Aschoff, ESPN:
There’s no question how Alabama coach Nick Saban feels about any sort of postseason changes. He’d like to see the best four teams compete for a shot at a national championship at the end of the season and he’s against just using conference winners. That means a plus-one is something he’s all for. But Saban would also like to keep the bowl system intact as much as possible because he believes it is “healthy for college football.”

Lost in a lot of playoff talk is the potential of schools — and more importantly players — losing out on the bowl week experience. It provides players with time to unwind and actually enjoy all of the buildup leading to the final game of the season. It’s a reward that players absolutely deserve after the regular season. Saban said during Tuesday’s coaches call that he’d like to see the “playoff” bowl games played in early January. The championship would come a week later at another bowl site. The use of regular Jan. 1 bowls would be an option and could rotate like the BCS bowls do now. Whatever the playoff would be, Saban just wants the true bowl experience kept. [More]
