Art Briles weighs in on Baylor vs. TCU College Playoff debate: ‘This is America’
Art Briles is not happy that his Baylor squad could get left out of the College Football Playoff while TCU, who they beat, plays
As you’d expect, Art Briles used his postgame interview after Baylor knocked off Kansas State to advocate for his squad’s spot in the College Football playoff:
Briles: “This is America. If you and I race and you beat me, you’re better than me.” #SicEm

Briles had already said that leaving Baylor out was “not the American way.” We’re not *quite* sure what he means — did America invent the idea of races? Couldn’t you kinda argue that we kinda don’t even elect presidents by giving it to the guy who won the head-to-head? — but we feel for Briles and all Baylor fans who might have to watch a team they beat head into the playoff while they sit at home. That’s a tough pill to swallow, but at least two very very good teams are going to have to sit out, and whoever it is will feel bitter about it.
