The playoff committee is pretty much under a microscope after leaving the Big Ten out 2 years in a row. The only way it happens a 3rd time (with including 2 SEC teams, no less) is if the Big Ten champ has multiple losses.

The year away is as lax as the leaving school allows it to be. What's really ratcheting it up Is the fact that, for the most part, schools can't block transfers anymore.

Number of losses never entered the equation of the CFP until 2016/2017. The 2015 Buckeyes finished the season with the same record as Oklahoma (11-1) but were left out because they were not conference champs. In fact, they finished #7 with a two loss Stanford team slotted ahead of them because the Cardinal were conference champs. That's pretty telling because it says the committee valued championships over win percentage. Suddenly losses seemed to matter in 2016 when the Buckeyes got in without a conference championship. It was clear Ohio State's schedule was the differentiator that got the Buckeyes in - beating 3 teams ranked in the final top 8 will do that. Nothing about 2017 Alabama dictated preferential treatment, other than being 11-1 vs. 11-2.

Ohio State announced Urban's retirement the Monday after the B1G championship game. If they were going to play shenanigans, they would have waited to announce his retirement until after signing day. But they would lie to Mathis about Fields? Yeah, that doesn't add up.

Whether you want to justify the "polarizing" opinions of JT Barrett or not is beside the point. There was a very lwrge, very vocal contingent of the fanbase that did not support him.

There is a reason why Ryan Day was willing to bring in Justin Fields. That says a lot.

Not like Urban ever had bad coordinator hires *cough cough*  Everett Whithers * cough cough* Tim Beck.
