Now that the college football season is over and the final CFP rankings are in there was some obvious winners and losers. If you don’t know, here is what the final college football playoff rankings look like.
As we can see from the picture above, the winners of the first ever college football playoffs are the schools whose conference has a championship game and the losers are the schools who don’t, aka TCU and Baylor.
Whoever it is from the Big 12 Conference who decided to not have a conference championship game and just name two co-conference champions did their conference and those schools, TCU and Baylor, a disservice. If they had had a conference championship game, which would have pitted a rematch between TCU and Baylor, the winner more than likely would have found their way into the final four of the CFP rankings rather than a Ohio State. Mark my words, because of what took place this year, the Big 12 will have a conference championship game next year. Unfortunately for them, in order to bring this decision about, they had to learn a very tough lesson. Hopefully, for their sake, they will learn from their mental error and grow from this.
