Was Ohio State robbed of a College Football Playoff spot?

Selection Sunday has come and gone, and not only did Ohio State miss out on the College Football Playoff, but it was also ranked below two-loss Georgiadespite winning the Big 10 championship. Many argue that winning a conference title should grant any team a shot to play for the national championship. Still, the Buckeyes blowout loss to unranked Purdue earlier in the year was too much to overcome. What do you think? 🏈

Apparently, conference championships mean nothing to the College Football Playoff selection committee. Ohio State only lost one game all season, had a tougher schedule than Notre Dame, won the Big 10 title, and still didn't make it into the playoff.

Oklahoma was the last team in the College Football Playoff, but can't stop a nosebleed with its 96th ranked defense. To add insult to injury, Georgia is ranked ahead of Ohio State despite losing two games. The Buckeyes got robbed.

Ohio State won its conference championship, but that doesn't mean anything if the team isn't one of the four best teams in the country. The selection committee wasn't blinded by the notion that a conference title is an automatic berth to the College Football Playoff. That only gets you so far and it wasn't enough for Ohio State.

A blowout loss to unranked Purdue is enough to sink any talk of Ohio State being included in this year's playoff. The selection committee got it right.
