Personally i would have voted the following:
Georgia
Clemson
Oklahoma
Ohio State

but Alabama getting in over Ohio State is not that big a deal for me.. meh...




bama lost one game by 12 pts to a #6 ranked team


Ohio St lost 2 games , one by 31 pts to an unranked team

Still, i would rather the Conf champs get the nod over a non conf champ.. just my opinion... which begs for expansion to 8 teams...

Well, Auburn beat both Georgia and Alabama convincingly during the regular season. So UCF was a good team this year. It also has bupkis to do with the argument.

Ohio State wet the bed against Iowa. We're not talking about a some last-minute, once-in-a-lifetime play either. Iowa systematically demolished the Buckeyes, who also lost to Oklahoma.

So what? ESPN didn't pick the teams.

Not so fast my friend....Dawgs dominating first half! Nick Saban looks like he is having a stroke. This halftime show is really for the Dogs! Not a fan of rap or whatever this "music" is! Go Dawgs! Impressed by the true Freshman quarterback! From high school in 2017 to the National Championship in 2018! This kid looks like a Pro!
