‘Bama’s sitting pretty in CFP rankings … and Saban is ticked off

The Alabama Crimson Tide are the only team with a loss sitting in the top four of the recently released College Football Playoff rankings. And on Wednesday, head coach Nick Saban got his first chance to discuss his team’s No. 4 ranking with the media.

You know he’d be pumped, right? Ready to talk about his team back among the nation’s elite.


Wait … we’re talking about still Nick Saban, the media and discussing rankings rather than on-field performance.

Yeah, you know how it went.

You can see some of Saban’s musings in the video below

Here are some of the highlights from the fun transcripts:

In all, Saban said the current CFP ranking doesn’t mean anything six times and asked what does it mean another four more.

Perhaps Saban is a little uptight about Saturday . . . his 7-1 Tide host 7-0 LSU on Saturday. The Tigers sit a half-game ahead of Alabama in the SEC West standings, and are No. 2 in those meaningless CFP rankings.

Talk about a game that means something!
