Alabama's Nick Saban is on the record, saying he likes the new four-team playoff format.

What he doesn't like are critics who believe the only ones who should play for the National Championship are conference champions.

This is a sore point for Saban because of what happened to him last year, winning the BCS title without even finishing atop the SEC West.

He says the critics are arguing something that is only in their best interest because they represent a weaker conference.
