FSU football got royally screwed the College Football Playoff Committee Sunday afternoon. A week after moving into the No. 4 spot by defeating a Florida Gator team that won’t play in a bowl with its backup QB.
The Noles got dropped to the No. 5 spot after defeating the No. 14 team nationally by 10 points with its third-string QB. How does that happen?
Well, that’s what happens with TV executives who care more about stuff off of the field than what happens on the field. A one-loss Alabama team who needed a “Hail Mary” in the previous week defeated No. 1 Georgia Saturday and moved into the No. 4 spot.
The one-loss Texas team, who defeated Alabama by 10 points on the road moved into the No. 3 spot. There was no way the committee could put Alabama in front of Texas due to the head-to-head loss, so they moved both one-loss teams in front of an undefeated FSU football team.
Incredible, especially after FSU beat a team ranked higher than the team Texas defeated Saturday for its conference championship.
