Nebraska Coach Scott Frost Says 1-2 Alabama National Titles Aren't Legit

Nebraska Coach Scott Frost Says 1-2 Alabama National Titles Aren't Legit

However, Frost doesn't necessarily think Alabama should be criticizing the Knights for their championship claim.

"Alabama's probably got one or two championships they claim that weren't necessarily recognized by everybody", Frost said in an interview with Omaha's KETV. I even got behind the parade they had after the season. I'll admit, it was fun at first when UCF's athletic director claimed the title after the Peach Bowl.

Tarte's words echoed statements this week from Republican leaders like House Speaker Tim Moore and Senate Leader Phil Berger. There was another goal - respect. "There wasn't "we want x amount in a pay raise" or 'we want x amount in school buildings".

UCF celebrated its 13-0 season with a national championship banner and handed out rings to players. Running back Bo Scarbrough, who starred at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., tweeted a photo of six rings on his hand with a caption reading, "real championship rings". For his part, Frost previously told USA Today that he "would have had a hard time getting behind" the championship claims if he were staying at UCF, though he later told the Orlando Sentinel he doesn't have a problem with the idea of there being multiple title winners.

Frost was responding to Alabama head coach Nick Saban's comments to George Schroeder of USA Today that "self-proclaimed is not the same as actually earning it" after Frost's former team, the UCF Knights, claimed a national title previous year upon completing an undefeated season.

"If you honor and respect the system that we have, (despite) some of the imperfections that you understand that the system has, then you wouldn't do something out of respect for the system that we have", Saban told USA TODAY Sports. But self-proclaimed is not the same as actually earning it. He made a decision to take a few minutes to address those comments during his show on Tide 102.9.
