Alabama football finished 11-2 during the 2022 season and failed to make it to the college football playoff. Instead, the Crimson Tide made it to the Sugar Bowl and outscored Kansas State 45-20.

Legendary coach Nick Saban discussed the college football playoff system as it relates to FBS parity and whether there was a better way to decide which team makes the postseason.

«So, but the problem with the way the whole system is, there’s no explanation for that, right,» Saban told FOX Sports’ Joel Klatt on «The Joel Klatt Show» podcast. «So all we do is take the teams that win the most games at the end of the year, put them in the playoffs. But do you really get the best teams? When I was told we’d be favorites against three of the four teams that made it to the playoffs, I wonder, why aren’t we in the playoffs?»

The College Football Playoff national championship saw Georgia dominate TCU 65-7 in one of the biggest blowouts in national title game history. Georgia beat Ohio State and TCU edged out Michigan to reach the final.

Alabama was viewed as the favorite in each of their games during the season. The Crimson Tide suffered losses against Tennessee and LSU on the road.

According to AL.com, Alabama may have been favored against Michigan and TCU and an underdog against Georgia and Ohio State.

«Does that mean they have better equipment?» Saban said. «Or does it mean that those people don’t know what they’re talking about? I really don’t. But I’m not criticizing anyone. But if you’re going to have parity, you have to have a better way to find out who has the best teams, not just because you lose two games in the last play of the game.

«That knocks you out when you can be better than someone who didn’t have the same circumstances they played under.»

The College Football Playoff will expand for the 2024 season.
