Skip Bayless was no fan of the College Football Playoff committee’s decision to include Alabama in the top four.
On Sunday, a heated national debate ended with the Crimson Tide being slotted fourth in the College Football Playoff rankings, one spot ahead of Big Ten champion Ohio State. It was a controversial decision among those who assumed the committee would reward the Buckeyes, even with one more loss, for winning a conference title. Alabama, meanwhile, fell short of the SEC Championship Game after losing to Auburn in the Iron Bowl.
Bayless, a FOX Sports analyst known for controversial opinions, used Twitter to fire off a piping-hot take after it was learned Alabama would play Clemson in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1.
I'm no Ohio State fan. BUT THE BUCKEYES JUST GOT ALL-TIME ROBBED OF THE FOURTH SPOT IN THE PLAYOFFS. OHIO STATE IS BETTER THAN ALABAMA, WHICH GOT DOMINATED BY AUBURN AND WHOSE DEFENSE GAVE UP 150+ RUSHING THE LAST THREE GAMES.

Cry all you want, Bayless, but what’s done is done.
An argument was easy to make for Alabama, given that many considered the Crimson Tide to be the nation’s top team throughout much of the season. And yes, the Crimson Tide didn’t have an awful loss to Iowa on their resume. That’s why Ohio State is bound for the Cotton Bowl instead of the College Football Playoff.
All-time robbed? Hardly.
