Alabama was No. 6 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings, behind Ohio State in the teams’ pursuit of an opportunity to play for a national championship.
In the Pac-12 Championship, Utah took down No. 4 USC, creating an opening for the Buckeyes to slide into a spot in the final four. Alabama then needed a Kansas State win over TCU in the Big 12 championship to at least have a shot.
Well, that just happened.
The final College Football Playoff rankings will be revealed Sunday, Dec. 4. Alabama fans and college football fans from across the country are weighing in on what this TCU loss means.
Here’s what they have to say.
A majority of people would be upset
i wish alabama could sneak in simply to make everyone mad

Could TCU stay put after this loss?
My hunch is that TCU will stay No. 3 but we’ll see

Don't worry, expansion is on the way
If Alabama makes the playoff the system is broken.

Feels like this has been said before, right?

Let's see if the committee agrees
Under no circumstances should Alabama be in the playoff.

They might be, but we certainly are
Honestly, you think the committee isn't tempted by potential Alabama-Georgia and Ohio St.-Michigan semifinals?

A tiny chance just got a whole lot bigger

Who gets in?
This is where the best vs deserving conversation starts and no one really has a good answer. Alabama has 2 losses and dose not “deserve” to get in. But the committee has to sit there and say with a straight face they think TCU and Ohio St is better.

This alone is worth the stress
Alabama football got most of the world traumatized. This is truly hilarious to watch

ALL to lose to have a shot, and it might actually happen. Guys, I’m starting to think God wants Bama in the Playoff 😂
