Why the Florida State Seminoles are Too Low at No. 4

This is honestly an embarrassment, and it is a real shot that should be taken at the College Football Playoff Selection Committee.

Yes, the Florida State Seminoles have struggled to put away lots of teams this year. But they are undefeated as a Power Five team, and every team they struggled with could be going to a bowl game. Keeping them from being No. 1 or at least No. 2 is ridiculous. It hints that the Selection Committee may have a personal agenda against Florida State, which is flat-out stupid.

The Seminoles don’t deserve this.

If you have a problem with their schedule strength, know that Florida State has beaten two teams in the Top 25 and another five who will make a bowl game. If you have a problem with them struggling to put away teams, how do you explain Alabama’s struggle to put away Auburn and Arkansas or TCU’s struggle to put away West Virginia and Kansas?

Honestly, TCU has no business being ahead of the Seminoles, and neither does Oregon. Neither team has Florida State’s resume, and it would be tough to distinguish them even if the Seminoles only had one loss. With no losses, this is embarrassing.

Alabama is a bit of a different story, but Florida State should probably be ahead of them too.
