The real reason the CFP has Ohio State #1 this week
You have to know what’s up here, though.
The CFP is for all intents and purposes an ESPN property.
You know who’s broadcasting this weekend’s LSU-Alabama game.
Not ESPN. CBS.
I hear you, I hear you. ESPN is taking its “GameDay” show to Tuscaloosa, so it wouldn’t have any reason to artificially have LSU-‘Bama downgraded from a Game of the Century to #2 vs. #3.
OK, got you on that one.
For three hours on Saturday, and all day today, leading in, ESPN gets to remind us that Tigers-Tide is #2-vs.#3, so, congrats on that, CBS.
You can bet this is what happens: Ohio State beats whatever the latest tomato can is in front of them on the schedule (editor’s note: it’s Maryland). Whoever wins between LSU and ‘Bama, they’re #1 next week.
