    ND in no way shape or form belonged in the CFP. I would argue that, realistically, they weren't even a top 5 team (maybe not even top 10).

    Hard to say with OU: I knew Bama was going to take their foot off the gas when they went up 28-0, and they did. Thankfully, they had the best player in college football going up against the worst defense in college football (and a ridiculous run game), so they easily won the eventual shoot-out.

    Hopefully the Bama D plays a full four quarters (or isn't required to) a week from tomorrow. Lawrence isn't as good as Murray, and I don't think Clemson's receivers are as good as OU's (could be wrong though! I haven't watched much of either), but they're still good and this time Bama will actually have to play a defense.

    Ah well, roll tide!!!

    Edit: As for who should have been in the CFP, Georgia is obvious (at 3). I'd probably give OSU the edge over OU for 4 since OSU has a defense, but we'll see how they do against Washington.

    There’s Bama and Clemson then a big gap to the next tier.

    We won’t see any CFP expansion to eight games anytime soon.

    And that's why 2 loss teams don't even deserve consideration in a 4 team playoff.

    Overhyped #2 SEC team... Sad. In no way deserved the #5 ranking...

    Meh, they shouldn’t have been in the playoffs, but “overhyped”? They had nothing to play for. Outside of the playoffs, bowl games are pretty meaningless. Players know this.

    Georgia didn't deserve to get in and had nothing to play for. Pretty obvious.

    But uhhh....the second best Small10 team just got destroyed by Florida and the third best lost to KENTUCKY.

    Georgia would have played Clemson a lot better than ND though.

    UCF doesn't show up for loser bowls. If it isn't national championship or a playoff game they take the week off.
