Cowherd: "Poor Title Game Ratings Show Country Is Tired Of Alabama's Dominance"

FS1's Colin Cowherd.

Colin Cowherd speaks on the air on FS1.

Monday night's national title game between Alabama and Clemson, while fantastic, wasn't exactly a ratings success. The overnight rating for the contest came in at a 15.8 - which is down 15% from a year ago, when Ohio State and Oregon played for it all.

FOX Sports radio host Colin Cowherd thinks part of the problem is that the country is tired of Alabama's dominance - he even compared the Crimson Tide to a generic Marvel superhero.

Is Alabama's dominance bad for the sport? Or were there other reasons for the ratings drop?
