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.

Wisconsin, Arizona State finish, frame by frame

The use of instant replay in college football is great. Not that the on-field officials don’t normally do a good job, but calls are inevitably missed. In the most obvious cases the wrong is righted through replay. Which makes an officiating crew committing egregious mistakes at the end of a game even more frustrating, as was the case with the end of the Wisconsin, Arizona State game on Saturday.
