CFB World Reacts To Playoff Chairman’s Divisive Remark

The College Football Playoff committee released its new top 25 on Tuesday night, and it sparked a lot of debate.

The top seven teams remained unchanged from last week’s top 25, which caused some fans to be disappointed.

The No. 1 spot in the polls was retained by Michigan.

Despite MSU’s win over the Wolverines, the Wolverines are in sixth place, ahead of the Michigan State Spartans.

Following the announcement of the rankings, Gary Barta, the chairman of the playoff committee, attempted to explain why Michigan was ranked higher than Michigan State.

“Forget about watching the games, though it’s a big part of it.”

However, Michigan outperforms Michigan State statistically in almost every category, both offensively and defensively,” he explained.

The explanation didn’t go over well with football fans.

They are still perplexed as to why Michigan State is a game behind Michigan.

“This is the closest the committee will ever get to simply saying ‘we favor the bigger brand,’ but didn’t everyone already know that? Eat at Arby’s,” said SB Nation’s Vanderbilt site.

“This is an all-time quote of the College Football Playoff era,” said Nicole Auerbach, a college football reporter.

Fans were taken aback when Barta said the committee should ignore what they see on tape.

Another fan said, “This man just said, ‘Set aside watching the games.”

The committee’s method of ranking teams has clearly enraged college football fans.

Because of their earlier season meeting, the committee put Oregon ahead of Ohio State.

Despite Michigan State’s head-to-head win, the committee believes the Wolverines are superior to the Spartans.
