Baylor, TCU Did Not Get Snubbed

Two plus two does not equal five, or even six.

That is the reality of the College Football Playoff. With five major conferences, it is assured at least one would not be represented and their would be the inevitable controversy and at one team being ‘snubbed’.

Snub is one of my favorite terms in sports media, right alongside ‘choke’ and a team ‘controlling it’s own destiny’.

Which brings us to Ohio State being selected over TCU and Baylor by the selection committee just five days after the previous ranking deemed TCU better than Florida State for the number three seed.

So after thrashing lowly Iowa State 55-3, the Horned Frogs dropped not only behind the Seminoles, but also Ohio State and Baylor.

10 bold predictions for the 2014 college football season

Robert Nkemdiche

With just a few days until the opening kickoff of a new college football season, it’s time to think about what will happen in 2014. Most experts have made conference predictions, listed Heisman Trophy favorites and made College Football Playoff predictions for this year. While those may be some of the more interesting conversations, there are still a few other areas of the sport to discuss and predict.

If the BCS is supposed to pit the two best teams in the nation against each other in the national championship game, then this year, it will have worked if LSU and Alabama end up meeting to decide the BCS National Championship.

LSU-Alabama Rematch in BCS Title Game Shouldn’t Happen Regardless of What Occurs Tomorrow in Tuscaloosa

After the 2008 Year of the Sooners, it is Time for a Playoff in College Football

If I were a Texas fan, I’d be feeling a little salty right now. If I were an Oklahoma fan, I’d be thanking my lucky stars that the 2008 Sooners somehow defied the most basic logic that is supposed to govern sports: nothing is more important than what happens on the field.

Oh wait — this is college football we are talking about, the sport where logic is nowhere to be found.
