Teams that have made it into the top four spots are Michigan, Washington, Texas, and Alabama. But with FSU having such an incredible season, their snub from the CFP rankings has left the fans perplexed. As such, Jason Whitlock used FSU’s missed opportunity to target Deion Sanders and how the NCAA has had a preference for him.

The FSU team has been heavily disappointed with last night’s announcements. Coach Mike Norvell’s team has been crowned the Atlantic Coast champions with an unbeatable season, and that too wasn’t enough for them to get a spot in the playoffs. This controversy has caused an uproar on the internet, and this is what Whitlock had to say in response to Daniel Kanell’s tweet for FSU.

Daniel talked about how FSU should’ve used Travis’s injury as an excuse to gain sympathy from the CFP committee rather than announcing that he would be soon coming back from recovery. Furthermore, he talked about how coach Norvell’s integrity didn’t allow him to play such a low tactic.

In response to Kanell’s tweet, Whitlock said, “Danny, you know if Deion was the coach at FSU, the committee would’ve put the Seminoles in the playoffs. Think about it.” Thus, he aims at the partial treatment that Deion has been constantly getting throughout the start of the season. But the fans know that Whitlock’s words only stem from a personal feud rather than actual stats. With all that said, Jordan Travis, the quarterback for FSU, had a heartfelt message for the fans after the team failed to make the playoffs.

Travis said, “I wish my leg broke earlier in the season so y’all could see this team is much more than the quarterback. I thought results matter. 13-0 and this roster matches up across any team in those top 4 rankings.” Furthermore, this is what Whitlock was also referring to. If Norvell had capitalized on Travis’ injury rather than announcing his possible return, it would’ve been the Florida team in the fourth position rather than Alabama today.

"Language is courage: the ability to conceive a thought, to speak it, and by doing so to make it true."- Salman Rushdie Hi, my name's Jeevesh Singh and I'm an NFL writer here at EssentiallySports. The sport has been on my radar because of the sort of aggressiveness with which the game is played, perhaps the only one in the world that allows such a brutal display of power.
