Alabama in the College Football Playoffs over Ohio State: The day College Football died

Alabama over Ohio State. Unbelievable. Kirk herbstreit walked off the TV set when the announcement was made.

The committee sent a firm message: Conference Championships don’t matter. That’s two years in a row that the Big 10 champ has been denied.

Schedules don’t matter, either. Ohio State had a better resume, hands down. Better strength of schedule. More quality wins.

None of that matters.

The committee just let everyone know: They’re going to take who they want, regardless of what your body of work said. The SEC rules – even though it doesn’t – and that’s a big problem for college football going forward.

Another big problem: The committee has three teams from the South – Georgia, Alabama, Clemson. And only one team from the rest of the country. How will ratings be?
