Georgia, Alabama make four-team playoff


Granting the Crimson Tide a chance to compete in the playoff just encourages the nation's perennial bullies - Ohio State could later be one of them - to optimize their schedule for blowout wins over more exciting games.

The football playoffs will begin Monday, Jan. 1 with Oklahoma (12-1) playing Georgia (12-1) in the Rose Bowl at 4 p.m. and Clemson (12-1) playing Alabama (11-1) in the Sugar Bowl at 7:45 p.m.

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.

The College Football Playoff National Championship Trophy awaits its presentation after the College Football Playoff National Championship game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers on January 9, 2017, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL. Clemson won the game 35-31. The committee announced Sunday afternoon that Clemson would be the top seed, while Oklahoma, Georgia, and Alabama rounded out the top 4.

Alabama also made history in the young playoff system becoming part of the first two-team conference combo in the field when it joined Georgia.




The Buckeyes beat an undefeated Wisconsin team in the Big Ten Championship on Saturday.

The Bulldogs will play against the Sooners on Jan.1. While the loss to Iowa State was a shocker at the time, the Cyclones finished the regular season with a respectable 7-5 record.

Saturday brought us the final games before the College Football Playoff committee makes their final poll.

"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. SEC victor Georgia, who took down Auburn Saturday is in third of the final four.
