Fox Sports' Colin Cowherd isn't shy about voicing his opinion on many topics, including the College Football Playoff. Yesterday, Cowherd tweeted that he disagreed with one-loss Alabama getting into the playoff over one-loss Ohio State, due to what he perceives a difference in strength between the SEC and Big Ten. 

Tonight, Cowherd revealed his current CFP foursome, and he lived up to his opinion from yesterday. Alabama is nowhere to be found among the four teams, while Michigan State and Ohio State are in the group. 

">@FOXSports. 1.Clemson 2. Oklahoma 3. Michigan St 4. Ohio State. SEC is an overrated mess. Sorry Bama.

Expect Cowherd's email and Twitter mentions to be engulfed with angry Tide fans starting 20 minutes ago. 

As good as the Buckeyes are, Alabama's resume is impressive. Yes, the Tide lost to 9-3 Ole Miss and have three "cupcake" wins, but their other eight victories are against teams with .500 records or better. Their defensive front seven is scary and Derrick Henry is a legit Heisman candidate. They belong in the CFP.
