BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban still advocates changing Southeastern Conference scheduling.
Saban was the only coach who supported adding a ninth SEC game before the league opted to stick to its current format. He said Wednesday at the Regions Tradition Pro-Am that if it was up to him, teams from the five power conferences would play only against each other.
He says there won't be much support for that unless the six-win minimum for bowl eligibility is changed to a formula based on RPI and strength of schedule.
Saban even floated the idea of playing 10 conference games, which he says "would be much, much better for the fans."
Saban says he "didn't think our conference would be so easily influenced to stay at the current way that we do it."
