Especially when the committee said that they would take injuries into account, and OSU is down to their third string QB.

But for FSU, I don't know how anyone could have expected a different outcome. They scraped by in half their games, and you could argue that we were their best competition all year (which is a low bar).

Agree with all your points

I would say if ND was in FSU's spot...defending champs, 29 game unbeaten streak, undefeated for the season, this board would be in thermonuclear meltdown if the Irish were not in the Final Four.

I think they got three of the teams right, just not OSU

OSU has a great coach

Can you imagine Kelly trying to prepare a third string QB to play against Wisconsin and then Alabama? I have flashbacks to Andrew Hendrix playing the second half against USC in 2013, and Hendrix was second string.

Including OSU in the playoff was not necessarily a bad idea. With Meyer you know you are going to get a competitive game.
