College Football Playoff: Is Alabama The Best Team?

    Nick Saban's rant about where the Crimson Tide fit into the CFP race has Campus Insiders' Pete Fiutak and Jordan Cornette discussing what to do with one-loss Alabama. The pair agree Alabama might be the most talented team in the country.

    We’re all adults here, so let’s just be honest with each other.

    Alabama is the best team in the country. It’s neck-and-neck with Ohio State as the most talented team in college football, and if it plays with the motivation and focus it appeared to have at Georgia, forget about it – no one in the country can play at that level right now, at least until Ohio State once again proves it can.

    But that hardly means anything unless the Crimson Tide roll through the rest of their schedule unscathed. What’s left on the road? Texas A&M in two weeks, Mississippi State, and Auburn. The Aggies are unbeaten and good, but no. Arkansas, Tennessee and LSU have to come to Tuscaloosa, and going to Mississippi State in mid-November could be a landmine, but no way, no how will the betting public make the mistake again of making Bama the underdog the rest of the way.

    This was the big piece to the puzzle. Beating Georgia was supposed to be dangerous, but this wasn’t just some good SEC team rising up on the right day. This was Alabama playing like Alabama again.
