03:11 PM ET 10.11 | In response to perhaps the longest-lived soundbyte in college football history (Nick Saban's complaint that excessive scoring is bad for college football and player safety), Dabo Swinney defends the honor of high-scoring teams everywhere by suggesting Saban might be better suited for the NFL after all:

"To me, if you look around, what makes college football fun is you have a lot of variety," Swinney said. "You see different things from week to week, whether it's the spread or the "I" or the triple option or whatever, and I think that's one of the things that makes it an incredibly popular game is that you just really never know from week to week. "If you really want the same old thing and everybody to be conformed, then you've got that in the NFL. That's what Sundays are for, in my opinion....
