Dez Bryant is on Minnesota’s side.
On Tuesday night, the College Football Playoff selection committee should the Golden Gophers some respect after a 31-26 win over then-No. 4 Penn State last Saturday, moving P.J. Fleck and company to No. 8, up nine spots from the first set of rankings. But Minnesota was still behind one-loss teams Georgia, Alabama, Oregon and Utah.
The star NFL receiver didn’t think that was right. And he went on Twitter to voice his opinion about the situation, saying the Gophers deserve better for the Top 10 victory and 9-0 record.
“Politics playing its part as usual,” Bryant wrote. “Minnesota deserves to be in front of all the one los(s) teams including Alabama.”

If Minnesota was ahead of all the one-loss teams in the rankings, it would be in the No. 4 spot and comfortably in the College Football Playoff picture.
The selection committee has been under scrutiny from several media members, including FOX play-by-play analyst Tim Brando. He called the system “the most corrupt” in American sports after Georgia and Alabama were ranked in the No. 4 and No. 5 spots.
There’s still a lot of football to play, but there’s still a lot of controversy surrounding the current rankings.
