Scott Frost takes shot at Alabama's national title count

  Scott Frost takes shot at Alabama's national title count Scott Frost helped Central Florida to an undefeated record last season, capping the season with a bowl win over Auburn."Alabama probably has one or two national championships they claim that weren't necessarily recognized by everybody," Frost told Omaha TV station KETV (via espn.com).

Alabama had to slip into the playoff without even winning its own division. With the title game being held 70 miles from Georgia's campus in Athens, Dawg fans packed Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but it turned out to be sweet home for Alabama and now Saban is 12 -0 against his former assistants.

Critics, though, argue that but TCU may have been more deserving to play Alabama in the BCS Championship Game than Texas. In 2003 Oklahoma played LSU despite losing to Kansas State 35–7 in the Big 12 Conference title game.

In 2017, Kansas went winless in the Big 12 and Alabama won another national championship.

Kansas won 12 games and the Orange Bowl in 2007. Alabama won seven games and lost the Independence Bowl in 2007. That was only 11 years ago.

The Jayhawks followed up the bizarre 2007 campaign with a respectable 8-5 mark in 2008 that included another bowl win, the only time in program history they've appeared in (and won) back-to-back bowl games. Then the wheels came off. Actually, the entire bus exploded and the wheels were rocketed into outer space. At the same time, Nick Saban was just revving up Alabama's dynasty bus.

Kansas ticket sales hit new low, down over $6 million from 2009

  Kansas ticket sales hit new low, down over $6 million from 2009 Jayhawks ticket sales are down nearly 65 percent since the team went to the Orange Bowl.Appropriately, interest from Jayhawks fans in the team has dropped like a rock. In new figures obtained by the Lawrence Journal-World, we now know just how much: ticket sales dipped to a new low of $3.4 million this past season. That’s a drop of some 65% from their peak of $9.5 million in 2009 and a nearly $6 million shortfall as a result.

They’ll likely slide into the field if TCU upsets Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game. Instead, the Tide have become a lens through which we can assess the value of conference titles . Alabama has a résumé essentially identical to that of no. 6 Georgia.

Saban on UCF's national title claim: 'Self-proclaimed' is not the same as earning it .
Nick Saban sat atop the college football mountain for the fifth time in January after Alabama took down Georgia in the 2018 National Championship Game, but that wasn't the end of his team's fight to be anointed the country's best. UCF, which went undefeated and beat the one team that took down Alabama in Auburn, proclaimed itself the true national champions, even going as far as giving national championship rings to players after winning the Peach Bowl.
