Why the 2017 College Football Playoff is a Joke

The college football playoff (CFP) system is supposed to crown a true national champion in college football but the 2017 selections of the four teams once again shows how big a joke the whole CFP really is. The committee selected Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia and Alabama to play in the 2017 college football playoff and here is why that is a joke.



The college football playoff system was supposedly created to have the four best teams in college football play each other so a real national champion can be crowned. But how can you think the CFP is anything but a joke when a team that soundly beat two of the teams in the 2017 CFP and went 2-1 vs two of the teams is not included in the playoffs? That totally de-legitimizes the whole process. 

How can a team that already soundly beat two of the teams in the CFP be excluded as one of the best teams in college football? It's a bad joke for all college football fans.


Why the 2017 College Football Playoff is a Joke


The 2017 college football playoff is a joke because the committee is trying to tell everyone that Clemson, Oklahoma, Alabama and Georgia are the four best college football teams in 2017. That is impossible to sell because Alabama just lost its last game by a score of 26-14 to Auburn.

Auburn then lost to Georgia in the SEC title game, but less than a month ago Auburn also defeated and crushed Georgia by a score of 40-17. How can you possibly expect anyone to believe the four best teams in college football are in the playoffs when a team that already soundly beat two of the CFP teams is not included?

Auburn is 2-1 this season vs two of the CFP teams and they beat both of the CFP teams pretty easily. The fact that Georgia did beat Auburn 28-7 (Auburn turned the ball over twice and missed two field goals) in the SEC title game makes Georgia's selection legitimate but having Alabama in the CFP is a joke.

How can you justify putting Alabama in the CFP when Auburn just beat them easily by a score of 26-14? How is Alabama a better team than Auburn when they just lost to Auburn by over two scores?

The college football playoff committee cannot sit there and try to tell everyone that Alabama magically became a better team than Auburn because they sat on the sidelines and watched as Georgia took advantage of two Auburn turnovers and two missed field goals and beat the Tigers in the SEC title game.

On the football field playing against each other Auburn defeated Alabama rather easily by a score of 26-14 but somehow that result which took place on the field between the two teams does not count to the college football playoff committee? 

When you have a handful of people sitting in a room trying to tell everyone who the four best teams in college football are rather than letting the actual results from the teams playing each other on the field dictating who the better teams are the whole process is a complete and absolute joke.
