FOX Sports’ Joe Klatt thinks Alabama is being propped up

Joe Klatt doesn’t like what the College Football Playoff selection committee is doing. The FOX Sports college football analyst recently came out with a damning rant against Alabama, and the team’s worthiness of being in the playoffs this year.

Klatt believes that the committee is ranking teams like Ole Miss and Tennessee higher than what they should be in order to make the Crimson Tide’s schedule appear stronger than what it really was. In addition, he stated that the rankings will be worked in a way to avoid an Alabama vs. Oklahoma matchup in the semifinals.

You can check out his full rant below.

Don't understand Ole Miss jumping so far…..oh wait…..have justify Bama being at #2 somehow…..and Tennessee sneaks in…of course

The best 3 loss team in the country is, without question, Oregon…and it's not close

If rankings stayed the same next week it would put OU vs Bama in Dallas…not ideal for Tide as higher seed.

IMHO I think they move Bama to 1 or drop OU to 4 in order to avoid that match-up in Dallas

It’s not surprising to see Klatt go off on a rant like this. As College Spun points out, this isn’t the first time that he has cried foul towards the committee. In this case, does Klatt have a point? Is Alabama really being falsely elevated in order to get a spot into the playoffs? What do you think?
