Fans and teams agree: Everyone overwhelmingly content with playoff selection

The College Football Playoff Selection Committee released their final rankings including the final four teams that go on to the College Football Playoff.

This year the final four consisted of SEC Champion Alabama, ACC Champion Clemson, Ohio State, and Pac 12 Champion Washington.

And while these final rankings usually trigger coaches, players, and fan bases venting their anger at what they deem to be a miscalculation…this year there were none of those arguments.

Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh surprised everyone with his dignity and humility.

“Look, we had hoped to make the final four.” Harbaugh stated calmly. “But we know that we lost two of our final three games. And one of those games was to unranked Iowa. I think No. 6 is fair and we look forward to our game in the Orange Bowl.”

Penn State coach James Franklin was also remarkably calm. Despite going to, and winning the Big 10 Conference Championship game Franklin understood the committees’s decision. “It would have been nice to make it to the playoff, but there’s always next year. We could have taken the decision out of the committee’s hands by winning all of our games. No hard feelings.”

Committee chairman Kirby Hocutt expressed surprise over the maturity and sophistication that everyone viewed the selections.

“We expect criticism. Much like when a husband argues with his wife, we realize that even if we are right, it will be pointed out to us all of the ways that we are wrong. This is truly a special occasion.”
