04:33 PM ET 01.08 | Nick Saban wouldn't let his players use the word "repeat," but can he stop them from dreaming of going for three? Odds are in for next year's national title, with Alabama favored to win its fourth in five years. The Tide are followed by Oregon, Ohio State, LSU and Texas A&M, with more of the usual suspects following close behind.

Yea those kids all look like they belonged to an NFL franchise yesterday. Bama is a machine at this point....I think the game would have at least been more entertaining had Oregon not lost and played in the NC game

I had a throw down a couple of months back predicting the three peat. I lost the throw down, but it seems others might finally be coming around. With the recruits Bama has coming to the program and the depth that they have already I think it is very Likely they will three peat.

Even the USC team of 2003-2005 team couldn't win 3 in a row. Bud Wilkonsin's Oklahoma team went undefeated throughout the 1954, 55, and 1956 seasons and even then he is only credited with 2 championships. Alabama winning 2 in row is momentous, but 3 in a row is extremely unlikely.

AJ comes back for his Senior year I don't see why not.

Regardless how next season plays out, there is no doubt that Saban is a giant in CFB.
