Kirby Smart not worried about Georgia's standing in upcoming College Football Playoff rankings
The first College Football Playoff rankings come out on Tuesday night, and fans everywhere are anxious to see who is in the debut top four.
Many think the 8-0 Georgia Bulldogs have a legitimate claim to be No. 1, even ahead of fellow SEC powerhouse Alabama, who is also 8-0.
However, coach Kirby Smart isn’t worried about where his team is ranked, going as far as to call the rankings “rat poison” in a hat-tip to Nick Saban during his Monday press conference:
Kirby Smart said he's not concerned with what the CFP committee rankings are Tuesday. 'It's how we finish.'

Coming off a 42-7 win over Florida, the Bulldogs are firing on all cylinders and look to be one of the best teams in the country.
They’ll almost certainly be in the top four, though where exactly they’ll fall remains to be seen.
Of course, as Smart notes, the rankings don’t matter at this point, as a loss would drop Georgia out of contention.
The first CFP rankings will be revealed at 7 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday night and can be seen on ESPN.
