    Roll Tide

    Congrats to the Alabama Crimson Tide. One of the best college games I've ever seen. Great comeback on the arm of a freshman. 5 titles in the last 9 years - now, that's impressive!

    Yes, congrats to the team that least deserved to ever be in the playoffs lol. When they got there they won but if their name was Alabama it never would have happened in the first place

    So who deserved to be there Lewe? Alabama lost one game but was number 1 for 99 percent of the season.

    I thought the UGA Vs OU double overtime was the best game of the season ... but no ... the championship game was FANTASTIC. Congrats to both teams.

    Congrats to Alabama, but I was really rooting for the Dawgs.

    Those football teams from Georgia have a nasty habit of dropping games after building a good halftime lead, huh...?

    Georgia, and Alabama......that game, for me, was more like NCAA version of dueling banjos, championship edition.

    Saw the highlights films, on youtube, though I'd missed the actual game itself.

    I thought GA played the vastly better game, at least for the first couple of quarters. Very, very entertaining to watch how strongly they dominated ... at least, for awhile. And then, things turned around. Nail-biter at the end, I suppose.

    Congrats to all "Tide" fans.

    I had really hoped for another rematch of Clemson-Alabama (in the championship game) but, alas it was not to be. Then when paired up in the playoff game, Clemson forgot to show up. I guess the younger players had the playoff jitters. Anyway, Alabama has had three tough and exciting championship games in a row, you sure can't take that away from them.

    Itís obvious isnít it? UCF. Alabama was ranked so high because of their name alone. Everyone in the country understands there is an sec bias and especially an Alabama bias. People see Alabamaís opponents as better than they truly are, and give them more credit than they are due. The best tide win all season before the playoffs was against........ MISSISSIPPI STATE. Say that out loud to yourself. Against a lousy miss state team. And by a touchdown. They were absolutely no more deserving than ucf and lost a game to their rival after playing........ MERCER! Is that a game? Yet UCF beat that same team... so I would say there is a really good case for declaring Alabama the worst team to make it in to the playoffs, ever. However, give Saban (re: Satan) a month and he can prepare for anyone! Dude can coach his tail off. This was a year where the top 3 were evident from the power 5 but the 4th needed to come from the outside. This makes the case for an 8 team playoff very strongly and also reflects negatively on the committee since theyíve lost all respect from a large chunk of the country.
