Georgia Just Got Completely Screwed by the College Football Playoff Committee

Georgia Just Got Completely Screwed by the College Football Playoff Committee”

Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame are unbeaten locks.

The No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners (12-1) will face No. 1 Alabama (13-0) in the Orange Bowl at 8 p.m. December 29 in Miami in a matchup of Heisman Trophy front-runner quarterbacks - Kyler Murray of Oklahoma and the Tide's Tua Tagovailoa. You can only see them over at SportsLine.

The Seminoles and Florida Atlantic Owls were the only two Florida teams - of the seven FBS schools in the state - not to receive bowl bids. This is a great field and in all probability will yield a true national champ, but in all fairness four teams this year is simply not enough. Committee members and people who have a say in these matters, let's do it. Let's make college football even greater than it is.

Duke will take on Temple in the Walk-On's Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana on December 27 after finishing the regular season 7-5. He also added 11 rushing touchdowns.

Instead, Georgia was placed ahead of Ohio State because they had good wins (over teams that lost 38-17 to Mizzou and 24-7 to Tennessee) and a close loss to Alabama.

The debate leading up to championship Saturday was whether Oklahoma or Ohio State might take the fourth spot if Alabama beat Georgia. The Murray-led Sooners are averaging about 50 points a game, which is best in the nation.

The wild card was Georgia beating the mighty Tide, which could have meant two SEC teams for the second straight season.

So were Clemson and Notre Dame.

In that season, the Fighting Irish made it all the way to the National Championship but got crushed by Alabama 42-14. Mike Elko, defensive coordinator at Texas A&M, held the same position at Wake Forest for three seasons. That game will be played at 8 p.m. December 29. The first is that if you're a Power 5 team and you're undefeated, you're in, even if you're Notre Dame. While the Sooner offense has rolled along all season at a historic clip, the defense has sputtered and stalled.

Instead, the CFP will be comprised of numerous same teams that show up annually.

It's not just that both major-college programs are headed south for bowl games, Oklahoma to the national semifinal at the Orange Bowl in Miami and Oklahoma State to the Liberty Bowl in Memphis.
