( – On Sunday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) blasted the College Football Playoff committee over their decision to choose Alabama’s Crimson Tide instead of the undefeated Florida State University as a fill to the four-team playoff field.

Many have protested the decision pointing out that the University of Texas Longhorns won over Alabama on September 9th. In the meantime, Florida State has managed to maintain a perfect record.

In a social media post on X, formerly known as Twitter, DeSantis pointed out that what they had learned now was that even if a team was undefeated and had won their conference championship game, the College Football Playoff committee was going to dismiss the results. He proceeded to congratulate the Florida State University football team for their results this season.

Before the announcement, there was speculation about who the participants in the four-team playoff would be. Many had also expressed concern over Florida State Seminoles potentially not making the cut due to having lost Jordan Travis, their quarterback because of a leg injury. This led to many questioning whether the team was going to be competitive in the playoffs.

Some viewed the decision to keep the Florida State team out of the game as confirmation of the rumor circulating about one spot being reserved for a team that came from the Southeastern Conference.

The Orange Bowl game is now scheduled to take place on December 30th, when the Seminoles are set to play against the Georgia Bulldogs.
