Texas A&M was rightfully left out of the College Football Playoff, and people are not happy!

The Aggies were kept out of the field in favor of Notre Dame, and there’s no question at all that it was the correct decision. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

However, we all know college football fans are far from rational, and the reactions were everything I hoped they would be!

The Aggies had no business being in the playoff. They just didn’t. Their two best wins were over a three-loss Florida team and a 6-4 Auburn squad, which fired their coach at the end of the season.

Oh, did you know they lost to Alabama by 28 points? Apparently, that’s supposed to be impressive, but just not impressive enough for the committee.

If only there had been a way for A&M to control their own fate. If only there had been a way for the Aggies to control their destiny.

Oh, wait, there was! They could have beat Alabama earlier in the season, but they didn’t! They got rocked. When you lose, there’s a price to pay.

Finally, Notre Dame beat Clemson and UNC. That might be a tough pill to swallow for SEC fans, but that’s way more impressive than beating a three-loss Florida team and a slightly above average Auburn squad. How was this even a debate?
