Urban Meyer has some experience with the College Football Playoff selection committee. The former Ohio State head coach was selected for the postseason tournament twice during his time in Columbus. He was also left out multiple times.

The former Ohio State head coach turned FOX Sports college football analyst went on quite a rant about the College Football Playoff selection committee's process on Saturday.

"The committee does a good job," Meyer said. "It's an imperfect system."

Here's how Meyer would fix it:

  • You have to go home-and-home with another major opponent (i.e. Ohio State's series with Oklahoma, Texas' series with LSU, etc.)
  • You have to play nine conference games
  • Get rid of the "look" or "eye" test
  • Get a "points system" together that rewards teams for wins vs. Top 25, Top 10, Top 5 teams, etc.

Well said, Urban.

The former Ohio State head coach might not be in TV for very long, but he certainly hasn't needed much time to excel at it.
