Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, Buckeyes react to College Football Playoff snub

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, Buckeyes react to College Football Playoff snub”

Alabama and Ohio State would have gotten a chance to settle it on the field, and none of the Power 5 conference champs would have been left out.

The Buckeyes were on the outside looking in of the College Football Playoff Selection Committee's final top four, losing out on that critical fourth spot to 11-1 Alabama - which did not win its division, much less conference championship.

Georgia (12-1) thrashed Auburn 28-7 in the SEC championship game, avenging its only loss of the season - an ugly 40-17 defeat at Auburn three weeks ago in which it was thoroughly dominated on both sides of the ball. It won the 2015 national championship game over Clemson before falling to the same Tiger program in 2016.

The Buckeyes (11-2) held on to beat Wisconsin 27-21 in the Big Ten championship game, but it was not enough.

Alabama opened as a one-point favorite against Clemson in Las Vegas despite making the playoff as the No. 4 overall seed. And it was a pretty significant loss at that. The Badgers tumbled three places with the loss to sit behind The Ohio State who rose to #5.

"I would say that if we lost to a team in our conference that was not ranked by 30 points that we wouldn't be having this conversation", Saban said in a late-night SportsCenter interview with Scott Van Pelt. "You wouldn't even be talking to me". Teams don't play well extremely well after they play us. "So, even though we didn't win the game, there's a physical toll that a good football team takes on another team, even if they don't win the game".

The committee favored a quality record over quality wins this year, and that's going to hurt college football fans more than anything.
