The College Football Playoff teams were unveiled Sunday morning and The Ohio State University was left on the outside looking in. Many of the experts in media believed that while Alabama might be the better team, Ohio State would be the last team in after defeating a previously undefeated Wisconsin team in the conference championship game. But, the selection committee saw it differently and Alabama was the last team in. Much to the chagrin of some, including notable The Ohio State alumn, Kirk Herbstreit.
“Herbie” was on set with Reece Davis, Booger McFarland, and crew when the four playoff teams were revealed. When The Ohio State was left off, Herbie left the set immediately. It’s pretty funny and the crew seemed to get a good laugh about it.
I think it was shock more than anything with Herbie. He’s been in media a long time and is pretty good about not showing bias.
