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...

Only an idiot would have been shocked by this.

Put the idiot hat on me then Saint Tiger because I was certain the committee would put Ohio St in. I lost $20 on it and $20 is a lotta money to me.

If $20 is a lot of money to you, you shouldn't be betting... just sayin

ppplsu,.... you're absolutely right sir or ma'am. But I was so certain that Bama was out I thought it was a guaranteed $20. I normally never, ever bet money on anything.

The thing I don't get is he picked Alabama when asked who would get the 4 spot. Palmer and Galloway went with OSU and Booger and Herbie took Bama.

Correct. This title is misleading. He thought Bama *SHOULD* be in but he assumed the committee was going to pick Ohio State. He was actually shocked they picked the 4 best teams.

Herb is all-Ohio State...very biased but only human reaction. Give it to him- he's passionate about OU.

He is not passionate about Oklahoma.....

Anyone that actually watched the show knows he wasn't shocked.

Yea.. and the blogger is just trying to get clicks. It's pathetic

Who did he think was gonna get the no.4 spot?
Reply12 months
It isn't Herbie.. Herbie picked Bama and was glad they were chosen. He was just acting surprised that the politically correct choice wasn't made, and they actually went with the better team. The problem is this article is a pathetic reach for clicks. It's basically bull shite.

He said he thought Alabama should be 4 but he expected the committee to put Ohio St. in and he was as shocked. it was not bias.

I don't have a problem with Herbstriet being a hard corps Buckeye homer. At least he's honest about it. But I'm tired of Jessie Palmer's anti Bama bias. Palmer can take his cheese dick, hair jel, Canuck, arse back to Canada.

It was bias.

He was honest to say that Alabama was the better team. I have a problem with the Fox network. During the OSU game, all of them acted like picking OSU was a foregone conclusion. I don't think they believed what they were saying, but were trying to affect the committee.

I was/am shocked that the committee put Bama in at #4 over Ohio State. The only thing I can guess at is the committee surmised that since Ohio St got stomped last season in the first round 31-0 by Clemson that the Buckeyes blew their shite this season. The committee went out on a limb for OSU last year big time and OSU made them look very bad. I'm truly flabbergasted Bama got in. I would have bet a lotta money that I don't have that Bama was out.

Should have been conference champ os. More disgusting than shocking, the gumps do not belong in top 4 period, just as os did not belong last year in top 4. In saying that I hope clemson beats them in every way possible.

I hate Alabama, but they are better than Ohio State and deserved to get in the CFP. Ohio State lost two games, Bama lost one. Also, Bama didn't lose to an unranked opponent at home by 30 points.

Ohio State didn't lose to an unranked opponent at home by 30 points either. They lost to Iowa on the road.

You dont lose yourself into a first round bye. Thats basically what Alabama did AGAIN.

He should be coaching somewhere. He's learned a lot sitting next to Corso all these years.

If I am anyone of the other 3 teams I would upset with the process. Bama got a bye week for not winning their division but still made the playoff. I think they have a legitimate beef with the committee.
Reply12 months
Yes, just like the 3 teams last season were so upset by Ohio State getting a bye week.

He actually wanted Bama to make it. He simply couldn't believe they didn't follow the politically correct decision and choose Ohio St. He meant nothing deliberate. Was just displaying shock in a comical way. Quit making bull shite headlines just to get people to click on your pathetic reach for a click. And stop trying to make something out of nothing.

He said he thought Alabama would be the fourth team in just before the final four were announced. Appears he got caught up in a lie.
Reply12 months
So they didn't pick Ohio St. because they lost two games, one to an unranked opponent. Ok, I get that. Why not Wisconsin? Who did they lose to? A #5 ranked team. Oh, they didn't win their conference? Neither did Bama.

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

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.
