    This is notre dames chance to prove there self to everybody to clemson, alabama, texas. Its to hard to make the national championship for notre dame because you have to be a A striait kid. I know im only 11 years old but im a huge notre dame fan. But watch notre dame they will prove there self out on that field. when they prove there self that means anything is possible just watch the game. And Notre dame got in the playoff because they beat north carolina, clemson. and teaxas a and m beat nobody they played trash. and ohio state has played nobody this season who they play ruthgers COME ON Notre dame will prove there self and i belive that they will be the national champs period

    ND split with Clemson. T AM got blown out by Bama. No one wants to see T AM again.

    The 4 team CFP Play-off is a scam. They’ll do anything to ensure Saban is in the final.

    Notre Dame finally plays a conference championship and we quickly see why they normally don't.

    It’s obviously rigged. If y’all don’t see it then 🤷🏾‍♂️

    ND isn't more deserving than TAM to be there, but TAM doesn't deserve to be there either. Conference championships have to mean something if they're going to be played. If you don't win your conference you shouldn't be able to play for a national championship. If they're not going to expand the playoff, I say rank conf. champs 1-5, with 1-3 locked in and make 4 & 5 play for the 4th cfp slot. G5 should have their own playoff

    How can you not fault OSU for what it's conference did yet fault Texas AM for playing a full schedule and losing a few games. Just BS.

    They didn't want to see A&M vs. Alabama a second time, but they set it up so, in theory, there could be a third meeting between Clemson and ND? Yeah, okay, sure. Where was the handwringing about putting two schools from the same conference in the playoffs, that we hear when it's the SEC? That committee knew from the start who would be in the playoff. This is more of a sham than the BCS ever was. I don't like A&M (they beat my Gators) but they did enough to deserve that chance. Other than playing each other, who did either Clemson or ND beat that was so tough? They wanted their media darling schools and nothing was going to change the outcome. Sham.

    Can we just get rid of the committee and have the AP poll decide the SIX or EIGHT teams that make the playoff?

    I stopped watching college football a while ago. same school-name money-make nonsense year after year, literally bottlenecking talent. It's ugly and unproductive.

  14. Alex Nankivell

    Because the committee didn't want a Bama-A&M rematch. That's it

    This college football playoff system is not better than the BCS championship series…🤷‍♂️ in my opinion..the controversy is still very prevalent 🤔

    ND made it because the VC sent a check! Ohio State has no business in the playoffs either imo.

  17. Reid Harrison

    ND REMATCHED Clemson so why not REMATCH Bama vs A&M.

    If Auburn had North Carolina’s schedule then auburn would have one loss

    The CFP committee is trash. It is so subjective.

    I usually agree with Heather's analysis but in this case, OSU only played 6 games while other teams played nearly a whole season. OSU may very well be the 3rd ranked team in the nation however, the fact that they only played 6 games and was allowed in cheapens this entire playoff process. It's not a good look.

    Just seems hypocritical that Ohio State gets a pass bc “they played the schedule in front of them” but Cincinnati doesn’t. Don’t get me wrong i think osu would beat Cincinnati but say that versus the whole schedule argument.

    Two idiots who never played football and know very little about football talking like they know anything.

  23. ScootMagoot46

    December 22, 2020 at 3:55 pm

    They could've easily put A&M at #3 over OSU. Then had OSU play Bama in the semifinal. These ESPN idiots.

    "A&M's best win is Florida, who suffered it's third loss of the season"……yeah, they lost to Texas A&M, Alabama, and LSU.

    Committee clearly went for the money grab but you can profit from their decision as well by betting on Alabama to cover the -19.5 spread (largest in CFP history)

  26. ScootMagoot46

    ND's best win outside of unhealthy Clemson was UNC, who lost to awful Florida State and Virginia teams. Lmao

    If notre dame played a&m this weekend there’s no doubt that a&m would be favored by oddsmakers to win

    The NCAA is the most bias of collegiate groups with under table financial jobs! The same thing that professional boxings doing with all the alphabet belts handed out.

    The tides gonna kill notre dame again. Believe it. Notre dame is overrated. Kelly can't win the big game.Notre dame got blown out and they are still in the playoffs. Some BS.

    Paul, you said on another station that Texas A&M didn't play well. Ohio State didn't either.

    Wrong questions. The real question is why did a team that played 6 games make the playoffs?

  34. Barry Dickens

    December 22, 2020 at 3:55 pm

    Why ohio st? They didn’t play any games. Gutless because of the chicom sniffles

  35. Chief 90

    People wanted the BCS gone because the SEC was dominating. They started a 4 game playoff and The SEC limp in every year.

    It's no excuse why Notre Dame was chosen. Notre Dame and Ohio State should not be in that's it. If Clemson had to play in the SEC west weekend and week out, they would have lost 3 games. Maybe 4. They are Ole Miss playing in the Sun Belt that's all they are or have been. These 2 no nothing about football. Move on nothing here.

    Great question. Politics certainly won. Tx AM a much better tean than ND! As a Bama fan i am so very happy were playing them over A&M!

    I don't see how Ohio State can even be considered. Cinci or A&M would have been better. They haven't even played half a season of football. Fewer bumps, bruises and injuries – they are much fresher. It's not fair to the other 3 teams who played 11 games!
