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

Barrett-USNews-Getty-FTR

And with a big-name team like Ohio State - an 11-2 conference champ - being left out, you can expect calls for an expanded playoff field to only get louder.

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.

Oklahoma (12-and-1) handled TCU easily in the Big 12 Championship 41-17. "And I think that that consideration based on the kind of team they had then is very important. Three against the top 16 teams in America", Meyer told ESPN.

He added: "The bottom line is we had a tough road loss".

For the third consecutive year, Clemson has made the College Football Playoff. They also started the season 11-0 and fell a game short of the SEC Championship game.

Oklahoma is in the playoff for the second time and will likely bring the Heisman Trophy victor.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield is playing like the Heisman Trophy frontrunner and Oklahoma's offense is a well-oiled machine at this point. Ohio State was at No. 8.

Clemson is back in the playoff for a third-straight season.

In the four seasons of the College Football Playoff, there has never been a two-loss program make the four-team field, including a deserving Big Ten champion Penn State last season.

It was only a matter of time before we got a college football season like this. "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". Alabama has dominated college football for a decade since Saban took over.

For the upcoming playoff, with the rankings official, let's say there was an eight-team playoff in place.

In the Top 25 released earlier Sunday, Alabama was fourth by a mere seven points over No. 5 Ohio State, but the committee's process is not the same as the traditional polls. Much like Alabama did this season, Ohio State had entered championship weekend ahead of Penn State. Last year, Ohio State was involved in a bit of a controversy again when it didn't win its conference but got in.
