TCU Horned Frogs head coach Gary Patterson was philosophical about his team being left out of the first College Football Playoff when he spoke to ESPN on Sunday afternoon.
“If we wanted to control our destiny we needed to be undefeated,” Patterson said.
Patterson had a point, but that didn’t seem to take the sting out of the Horned Frogs’ free-fall out of the Top Four in the final College Football Playoff rankings, released Sunday morning. TCU — which was ranked No. 3, ahead of undefeated Florida State last Tuesday — ended the regular season as the No. 6 ranked team.
