  1. If Georgia had just beat Alabama the current final four rankings would have stayed the same as they were after week 13: Georgia, Michigan, Washington and Florida State. All undefeated teams and conference champs! The CFP Committee would have been hard-pressed to try to ignore the winning records of those four teams.

  2. I took six cable boxes and a modem back to Xfinity today. I don’t want a nickel of my money going to ESPN. I discovered I get hundreds of channels for free on my Samsung smart tv. The corrupt college football pukes saved me about 12 bones a year and I’ll never have to watch ESPN again.

    Its a win win.

  3. FSU need to file lawsuits against ESPN and the talking heads they employ for talking down FSU leading up the decision made by the committee to boot them in favor of all might Alabama. It’s apparent the CFP and ESPN had the fix in to get an SEC team in the playoff over a 13-0 FSU team.

  4. The CFP is completely corrupt and should be held accountable. There Must be repercussions for this atrocity. I would urge FSU to take action. FSU should Boycott the bowl!!

  5. Where is the article on the CORRUPT decision by the CFP?

    Please fix this Governor DeSantis, Senators Simon and Scott, and President of FSU.


  6. ““does not explicitly” shield the identities of police officers — or any other people — from disclosure” ………………. This needs to be clarified because the phrase “or any other people” might also mean the Victims as well.
