The winner of the SEC Championship game between the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide has national title implications. The winner will take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the BCS National Championship. The loser of the game could fall out of the BCS standings, which would leave the Florida Gators in the Sugar Bowl.
Florida playing in a BCS game does not sit well with Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban.
“It’s not really a great scenario,” Saban said on Sunday. “You play your way into the (SEC) championship game, which means you’re the best team in your division… It doesn’t seem quite right, but it is what it is. I don’t really know what me commenting about it is going to do to change it. But I don’t feel good about it.”
Gators head coach Will Muschamp responded to Saban this afternoon.
“Well, I can switch and go to Atlanta if he doesn’t want to go to Atlanta and play the Dawgs. Be careful what you ask for, Nick,” said Muschamp, who coached with Saban at LSU and with the Miami Dolphins.
They were odd comments from Saban, who played in the national championship just last season, despite not winning the SEC Championship. If he truly believes his comments, Saban should give back his championship trophy because, by his own words, it was not deserved.
