Like a lot of people on Sunday, ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit was shocked when Alabama was revealed to be one of the four College Football Playoff teams. So shocked, he walked off the set...

IDK why he was upset that a one loss team that didn't play for or win their conference bumped Ohio State out the playoffs, because that's exactly what Ohio State did the season before. They were in they same place as Bama this year and the committee picked them instead of the conference champ who beat Ohio State in the regular season. Ultimately, Ohio State got their asses handed to them by Clemson in that 2016 playoff game. So, who knows what may have been had the committee taken Penn State instead. But, the committee has made it clear, conference championships mean nothing compared to wins and losses. Fact is, Ohio State is not one of the best 4 teams in the country. Auburn, LSU, Miami, USC could all beat Ohio State. There is a reason why southern teams have dominated the National Championship of college football for the past decade. Ohio State wasn't good enough to win the NC last year and they got the snot beat out of them. Who wants to see a frickin blowout in the college playoffs, I sure as hell don't. And now they have 2 losses, they def are not good enough to compete with southern teams this season. Losing 31 to nothing in a college football playoff semi-final is an embarrassment to the committee for picking them last year and a joke to football enthusiast that just want to watch a good football game. Urban should go back to Fla.

How was he surprised? Just seconds earlier he had said Bama was the better team and he would pick them.

Being a pussy just comes naturally to him. He did go to Ohio State after all

Next year I'll hope for a chaos field of Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, and LSU. I'll watch Kirk Herbstreit pretend to have a fake heart attack on air and proclaim "by golly, I really thought Ohio State would have made it!".

Just reading through past blog posts of Larry Leo.. Obviously a shite stirrer who will twist the truth to get clicks. Personally, I'll never read another thing he types. He is more worried about clickbaiting people with bull shite than actually covering sports in a respectable way.

Did Bama play Iowa on the road? Nope Did Bama play Penn St? Nope Did Bama play Wisky? Nope Did Bama play Michigan on the Road? Nope Did Bama host OU? Nope Did Bama play Michigan State? Nope So my point is, what is the meaning of winning a conference championship? Just eye ball it huh?

Auburn doesn't think Conference Championship games are irrelevant.

They're as relevant as they were before the playoffs, no? You're still your conference champion.

wasn't Ohio State in the same boat last year as Bama is this year and Herbstreit was making a big noise about how Ohio State deserves to be in the playoff's last year. Now that Ohio St. is a conference champion, his last years debate is null and Bama doesn't deserve to be in the playoff's, Hypocrite Herbstreit.

Well if it had to happen to any conference, let it happen to the SEC. This sets a good precedent for LSU moving forward.
