Alabama’s head coach is upset.
Nick Saban has led Alabama to yet another national title game – his sixth in nine seasons – but of course, he’s found something to be angry about.
The Crimson Tide’s head coach said the day after his team’s Sugar Bowl win against Clemson that the College Football Playoff schedule is too hard on the players.
Saban, a five-time national champion, wishes there was more than a week between the semifinals and the national title game.
“Someone has to think about the players and not what’s convenient for the media or TV,” Saban told reporters.
Alabama played Clemson in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on Jan. 1, with the game finishing just after midnight. The Crimson Tide will face Georgia in the national title game in Atlanta on Jan. 8, with kickoff set for 8 p.m. E.T. Saban’s team will spend three days in Tuscaloosa, Ala. before heading to Atlanta for the national title game.
