The College Football Playoff Committee released its first rankings Tuesday night and Twitter was buzzing with comments about the rankings.
Clemson is ranked No. 3 in the rankings.
In this edition of What They Are Saying we look at what is being said about the initial CFP rankings on Twitter.
Surprised the CFP has UGA up as high as No. 9. Lost by 17 and 16 to Bama and UF and just barely beat a Miss. State team with on 49 scholarship players.

Initial CFP ranking takeaways:
– BYU has no path to the CFP
– Pac-12 has no path to the CFP
– No team outside the top-8 has a reasonable chance to make the CFP.
– It's 8 teams battling for 4 spots.

Clemson's top 10 loss trumps Ohio State's top 10 win. Tigers haven't won in 3 weeks, and barely escaped powerhouse Boston College. CFP committee is in peak form — again. https://t.co/m7Nhf2O5qY

A shaky defense and only one opponent with a winning record put Ohio State behind Clemson in the initial CFP rankings, but it didn't keep the Buckeyes out of the top four. https://t.co/GFvlGAbMJ1 pic.twitter.com/7ysr7m8YZ9

Very straightforward: Alabama-Florida winner is in. Notre Dame-Clemson winner (with Trevor Lawrence playing) is in. Ohio State-Northwestern winner is in. Fourth spot would be Bama if it lost to Florida, ND if it lost to Clemson. So Texas A&M and Cincinnati root for Bama and ND. https://t.co/c63Jq1ycTR
