Coach Nick Saban was asked Wednesday for his views on the BCS, and he said he respects it.
But he doesn't believe it is the answer.
He would rather the two teams left battle it out, which was Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive's stance this spring.
"I've always been an advocate of the plus-one system for how you determine a national championship game and who is in it," Saban said. "The integrity of the bowl system is important, so you keep that. But instead of picking two teams, why not pick four? You play the game a week after the (New Year's Day) bowls anyway."
