The third edition of the College Football Playoff rankings were released on Tuesday.
Alabama stayed at the top while the rest of the deserving SEC teams moved around. While none of it matters until the very end, everybody still loves to debate where teams are placed.
Here’s some reaction from around the country as the rankings came in:

Texas A&M fell 4 spots after losing to Mississippi State and 17 spots after losing to Ole Miss

Alabama is 4-0 vs. this week's CFP Top 25.

Committee and I agree 1-8. That kind of scares me.

It's like the #CFBPlayoff Committee uses logic and reason rather than knee jerk outrage when analyzing Auburn and an injury-riddled loss.

Going to be tough for Louisville. Only gets into conversation if there's a P5 champ with 2 losses. And there's still possibly tOSU out there

This is all that matters. If Michigan wins out its in, which makes perfect sense.
If it loses again, it's out, which makes perfect sense.

Per the analysts, there is a new criteria for earning the No. 4 spot in the College Football Playoff: Can you compete with Alabama?

Agree with @KirkHerbstreit on what Alabama is offensively. Not the overpower/maul you group from a few years ago but more balanced/athletic.

LSU fell more after a close loss to #1 Alabama than Michigan, Clemson, and Washington did for losing to FAR worse teams. Ridiculous…
