Eh, IMO, either way it was fucked. FSU isn't good enough anymore, basically. They would be squashed by Michigan. If they beat Georgia, that's what would get them evidence and allow them to clown on the CFP.Punting FSU out of the playoff has apparently completely fucked up the ACC bowl distribution, made Jordan Travis so depressed that he publicly stated he wished he broke his leg earlier in the season so the injury would not be held against them, pissed off the legislature of Florida, and potentially has FSU so pissed it might boycott the Orange Bowl.
Also, they fucked over some Division II school that beat a Division I team too.
Slow clap at the Playoff Committee just pouring massive amounts of kerosene on the conference realignment nightmare fire, and potentially getting themselves setup to be the next against the wall after the NCAA gets fucked.
Look, the answer is the same it's always been: actually have a league. But no one wants that, so you will be forever stuck with the committee.
