On Saturday night, the Clemson Tigers once again proved why they are one of the best program in the country year-in and year-out. The Tigers dominated the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the Cotton Bowl to the tune of a 30-3 win.
After the game all of the familiar playoff questions popped back up. Why was Notre Dame in the playoff ahead of Georgia and Ohio State?
Those teams finished at No. 5 and No. 6 in the rankings respectively and missed out on an opportunity to play in the College Football Playoff.
Now other coaches are wondering about the playoff committee’s method of operations. An anonymous coach spoke with college football insider Bruce Feldman and offered the following comments:
“When will the (CFP) committee actually watch personnel? Notre Dame doesn’t have players anywhere close to the three other teams or Georgia. Like watching a NFL team play a college team,” the coach said.

Arguments about the playoff will be made until the end of time.
