One Colorado football analyst believes Georgia and Ohio State were equally as robbed of a College Football Playoff spot as FSU.

Colorado football analyst Josh Tolle of BuffsBeat believes that if you are going to make the argument that FSU should've made the College Football Playoff, there's an equal case to be made for Georgia and Ohio State.

"What happened this year was the scenario the College Football Playoff committee has been dreading for years," Tolle prefaced before saying, "However, it's the setup with five top conference and four spots available to fill. In previous seasons, November upsets have occurred and playoff selection chaos was often avoided. This year, not so much.

"That was the point Coach Prime was making, but with a 12-team playoff won't be a issue in the future. This was not a shot at Florida State. The Seminoles were robbed, but you can make the case the Georgia Bulldogs and Ohio State Buckeyes were as well. It wasn't to the same degree as an undefeated team being left on the outside. It would be crazy to suggest that any of those teams couldn’t win out in a four team playoff."

Colorado football analyst right on the money with CFP take about FSU, Georgia, Ohio State

FSU has a legitimate gripe not to be in the CFP. Perhaps the most legitimate case of everyone. But Georgia has just as legitimate a case, with a better loss (Alabama) than Texas had (Oklahoma); one that wasn't well-timed right before the final CFP rankings were released. Ditto for Ohio State, whose loss to Michigan ended up being a "win and you're in, lose and you're singing the blues" situation.

Obviously, the CFP is a flawed system at just four teams, but the 12-team playoff, as Tolle notes, will solve most of those issues. But this final season of the four-team arrangement showed exactly why the current system is soon to be a thing of the past.
