Interesting wrench the semifinal throws

Related, did anyone else see Saban's staunch protection of his players (and not at all his legion of analysts) who have to try to prepare for a football game the week after a football game:

Alabama coach Nick Saban lamented what he feels is a quick turnaround from the College Football Playoff semifinal games to the championship game, saying that it's difficult to come off a bowl game with only seven days to prepare.

"Someone has to think about the players," Saban said, "and not what's convenient for the media or TV."

This couldn't possibly have anything to do with the gigantic advantage he has in bowl games (an almost unbeatable coach when he has a lot of time to prepare) and the shrinking of that advantage in the 7-day scenario, could it?
