College Football Playoff Committee Chairman Jeff Long Getting Criticized On Twitter For SEC-Heavy First Rankings

The College Football Playoff selection committee has spoken, and if things were settled today, the four team playoff would consist of three SEC squads—Mississippi State, Auburn, and Ole Miss—as well as Florida State. As a result, many fans of non-SEC schools are up in arms about the SEC-heavy first rankings released by the committee, and they are letting Arkansas athletic director and committee chairman Jeff Long hear it on Twitter.

Fans of non-SEC schools are obviously miffed by the results of tonight's rankings, but remember, there are plenty of games left that will affect the rankings going forward, and many opportunities for the SEC teams to beat up on each other. The rankings come December 7 should provide much more clarity than what was released today.
