Scott Frost fires back at Nick Saban over national championship talk

Scott Frost

Scott Frost may no longer be the head coach at UCF, but he is still willing to defend his former team against the one of the most influential figures in college football history.

Earlier in the week, Nick Saban slighted UCF over the way they have celebrated their undefeated season and crowned themselves national champions, saying the antics have undermined the system. Frost, who is now the head coach at Nebraska, fired back on Thursday, noting that Alabama probably has a few championships that others feel they did not deserve.

Alabama has won 17 national titles in its program’s history, and Frost is probably referring to the ones the Tide won before the playoff system was in place. You could argue that some of those championships were made possible by biased opinions, but that doesn’t really hold weight now that there’s a four-team playoff system.

Frost even said he wouldn’t have gotten behind all the national championship claims UCF has made, and some Alabama players have taken shots at UCF over it. Eventually, a new season will be underway and we won’t have to worry about last year’s champion anymore.
