On Sunday, the College Football Playoff Committee released its final rankings.
Unsurprisingly, Baylor was not included in the top 4 teams after a 2-loss season.

Deservingly, Alabama, Michigan, future conference member Cincinnati, and Georgia will be playing for a national championship.
In a surprising twist to many Baylor fans however, the Bears were left outside of the top six teams. Notre Dame as well as a 2-loss non-conference champion Ohio State rounded out the teams revealed during the first part of Sunday’s ESPN production.

Notre Dame has ZERO.
Baylor is a conference champion.
Ohio State is NOT. And didn’t even make its conference championship game.
Give me a freaking break.
In the end, it is a minor slight in terms of results, but many feel it is a slight from the committee.
It doesn’t seem to bother Dave Aranda much, who is reported to already be out and focused solely on recruiting.
