College football has been ridiculed for the BCS system, and now most fans aren’t too satisfied with the four-team playoff system, either.
And to go along with those criticisms and many more, fans usually disagree with the committee’s rankings on a weekly basis. That much was evident on Tuesday night when the top six teams were announced over the internet.
The first CFP rankings of the season are here!

Cincinnati is No. 2 in the AP Poll, but No. 6 in the initial CFP rankings.
It matches the lowest CFP ranking for any team ranked top-2 in the AP Poll at any point (2015 Baylor). pic.twitter.com/Sj1rDXhQln

I’ve never seen such disrespect than what Cincy just got with the CFP rankings

The CFP committee does not exist to create the most deserving playoff
They exist to create the best product for advertisers and TV execs
Once they admit that these rankings won’t be so controversial

Obviously, the biggest critics of the new rankings should be Luke Fickell and Cincinnati. They are now undefeated, and sit behind three teams who have already lost once on the season.
If these rankings are any indication of heats to come for the future, then it will be virtually impossible for any non big-name school to creep into the College Football Playoff without getting a whole bunch of help.
Once again, the College Football committee is choosing to the route that will make the most money for the sport. And they’re willing to take on the criticism that comes along with that decision.
