Prior to the College Football Playoff Committee making its final selections for the Top Four NCAA spots, Actor and comedian Josh Mancuso shared a one-man bit on what the committee may hear during the pitches
Mancuso posed as Ohio State, Tennessee, Michigan, Alabama, Clemson, Auburn, and LSU during the bit. “The College Football Playoff Committee interviews a few teams trying to get in the Top 4,” the caption read.
Although most of the teams were met with some awkwardness and dismissal, the one college football that captured Mancuso’s committee attention was Alabama. Although the committee did point out that Alabama beat teams that Tennessee beats and Tennessee had a tougher schedule, the conversation ended with, “We gotchu” to the Crimson Tide.
