07:20 AM ET 01.02 | If nothing else, their Sugar Bowl opponent, Alabama, will serve as the ultimate measuring stick for Oklahoma and the Sooners. Just how close are they to competing at the highest level of college football? "How could it not be?" OU coach Bob Stoops asked. In my eyes, they're still the best team in the country. They've been the best team in the country for three years, up to the very last play of the regular season. So a great, great team. We recognize that." But Stoops wasn't finished. "I think everybody would say they're as good a football team as we've played in 15 years." ... Alabama coach Nick Saban will be a guest analyst on ESPN's coverage of the Auburn-Florida State national championship game. "To be honest, I think it's really good exposure for our program to be able to be involved in some of those kinds of things."

Yep. Just laying some ground work if his team loses. " Oooooh, we lost to the best team in the country, so I did great really"

Except they are not, but that is irrelevant.
