Clemson Football: The Perfect College Football Playoff Committee

As we move into a new era of college football, the College Football Playoff committee will have a hard job. Here is my swing at the perfect thirteen people to make these hard decisions.

Nick Saban

Let’s face it: is Nick Saban really going to be happy when he is retired? We all know this answer.

Why not put the man to work on the CFP committee? Think about it. He has an office in Bryant Denny Stadium. He could have a dozen big-screen televisions put all over his walls.

His credentials precede him, but in case you have been in a coma for the past 20 years:

He has been a head coach for 28 seasons of college football. Most people know he was at Alabama, LSU, and Michigan State, but he also snuck in one season at Toledo.

He was the head coach of the Miami Dolphins for a minute and also served as Bill Belichick’s defensive coordinator in Cleveland. He also worked for Don James at Kent State.

He has won seven national championships, 12 conference championships, and 12 division championships.

His overall college football record is 292-71-1.

It’s a foregone conclusion that he will be a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. Time will tell, but he will likely be remembered as one of the best college football head coaches in history if not the best overall.
