Playoff committee narrowly avoids catastrophe

December 4, 2014

This year is the first year of the college football playoffs (for Division I) and it was almost in ruins before the first game was played.
It still might end up as a big mess, depending on how the games this weekend go.
The first major blow to the system was when Ole Miss knocked off No. 4 Mississippi State in a convincing fashion in the Egg Bowl.
That was followed by Georgia choking away its annual rivalry game with Georgia Tech.
Those two losses made the Southeastern Conference look weaker than it is and left the SEC with just one team that could make it into the playoffs.
