Alabama has no chance, even with TCU loss

Somewhere in a conference room near Dallas, the 13 College Football Playoff selection committee members watched the TCU Horned Frogs fall behind by 11 points Saturday to Kansas State early in the fourth quarter of the Big 12 championship game. 

It says a lot about how little trust there is in the committee that the conversation on social media immediately shifted toward whether TCU was about to be replaced by Alabama in the Playoff. 

The same Alabama that lost twice during the regular season. The same Alabama that didn’t win the SEC West. The same Alabama that didn’t post a better victory than over No. 20 Texas way back on Sept. 10. 

Come on, folks. Give the committee a little more credit than that.

Though the Horned Frogs did lose the Big 12 title game in overtime, 31-28, any conversation about TCU vs. Alabama is nothing more than fake drama heading into a Sunday where the CFP field has fallen firmly into place.
