Karle's Korner: You shouldn't be surprised with the rankings in the first CFP poll

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Are you surprised that the Crimson Tide football team is ranked #2 in the latest College Football Playoff Poll? I’m not, as the playoff committee rightfully feels that the Georgia Bulldogs’ non-conference schedule has been tougher than Bama’s to this point in the season.

And the happiest person in the world? Bama coach Nick Saban, who certainly LOVES seeing his players knocked down a peg. Coach Saban loathes all of the praise that his players receive: Now he can coach them up, keep them focused and go into the playoffs ready to rule. Between you and me, the playoff committee did the Crimson Tide a huge favor, and when it all washes out? Look for championship number 17 come January.
