There are times when I think Matt Hayes is America’s dumbest CFB opinion writer.
Today, he manages to equate the Coaches Poll with public opinion as a source that could pressure the selection committee.
Let’s say UCLA has one loss and is third in both the coaches and AP polls but doesn’t win the Pac-12 and doesn’t get selected to play in the CFP. Well, suddenly, we have problem with our grand new system.
Because if 60-plus coaches think UCLA is one of the four best teams, and 60 media members think UCLA is one of the four best teams, how in the world can the 13-member committee release its playoff field without UCLA?
