The College Football Playoff was a complete success

The College Football Playoff made its debut yesterday and even though there is one more game left, I consider it a complete success. The one issue that the BCS created was the possibility of several worthy teams that should be considered for the championship game were left out. It was not fair and it didn’t bring any excitement.

(Dockett supposedly deleted the tweet but it’s still on there. He then claimed it was supposed to be a direct message, even though it would be impossible to send one to her since she doesn’t follow him.)
