If the TCU Horned Frogs were Charlie Brown, the College Football Playoff committee became their Lucy on Sunday morning.
The committee pulled their College Football Playoff berth right out from under them by sliding the Horned Frogs from No. 3 — which is where the Horned Frogs were ranked less than a week ago — to No. 6, even though the Horned Frogs destroyed Iowa State, 55-3, on Saturday and shared the Big 12 championship with Baylor.
It must have seemed absurd to TCU fans as they watched the rankings unveiled. Twice this season the Horned Frogs had been ranked in the top 4. Neither Baylor nor Ohio State had been ranked in the top 4 at all this season. Yet both were ranked ahead of TCU on Sunday morning.
