Ultimately, yeah. I think they did.
Earlier in the week, it was revealed that the four teams to play in the inaugural College Football Playoff are; No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Oregon, No. 3 Florida State and No. 4 Ohio State.
As I said, I think they did get it right. How they got there however, has left me gobsmacked.
As recently as last week, TCU held the No. 3 ranking and Baylor held the No. 4 spot. This week Baylor fell to No. 6 after beating Iowa State 55 – 3. WUT?! Now, in my opinion (and surely that of any sane CFB enthusiast), TCU should have never been ranked ahead of Baylor since Baylor beat TCU, and head to heads matter don’t they? DON’T THEY? Nope. Total mind fuck. Such a liar, Condy.
I have a sneaking suspicion that ‘The Thirteen’ may have tried at the last moment to rectify that situation with a ‘Oh, you thought we didn’t get it right, how fucking fascinating?’ type decision. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Either way, both Big 12 contenders Baylor and TCU did not make the Playoff.
Ohio State fielded a third string Quarter Back and won 59-0 over a ranked opponent to win the Big Ten Championship, so I’m okay with them joining the three other Conference Champions in the College Football Playoff, cos, you know. Baylor and TCU didn’t win their championship game.
The Big 12 has no championship game.
