Nick Saban wants to see a lot more parity in college football.

Alabama was already the best program in the country and with money flying all over the place, the Crimson Tide are only going to be in a better position to get the best players in America.
So, Saban is very literally speaking out against his own interests, but he clearly is bothered by what’s going on. When Saban speaks, it’s a very smart idea to listen to the man!
Former Nick Saban players have earned more than $1.7 billion in the NFL.

Do I have an answer for how to fix what’s going on? I don’t, but I think it’s safe to say some adjustments need to happen. Anyone paying attention probably feels the same way.
