Was Texas A&M a Playoff worthy team? Social media reacts to Aggies' first half performance in Orange Bowl against North Carolina
Since the College Football Playoff selection committee unveiled its first rankings of the 2020 season, Texas A&M fans – and some media members – have been vocal in arguing that Aggies deserved a Top 4 ranking.
Ahead of the final rankings, Jimbo Fisher and others lobbied for Texas A&M to get a spot in the College Football Playoff. The committee ultimately opted to give the non-Alabama spots to Clemson, Ohio State and Notre Dame and many Aggies fans and players cried foul.
The Aggies instead landed in the Orange Bowl against three-loss North Carolina. Fisher’s squad has its hands full with the No. 13 Tar Heels, leading many on social media to question the Aggies’ complaints of a Playoff snub as A&M leads 17-13 at the break.
Remember when people tried to argue that Texas A&M should get in the playoff over Ohio State? Those were fun times.

Texas A&M has a playoff defense but not a playoff offense, the committee got it right

If Texas A&M is trying to make a statement that they should have been in the playoffs, I’m not seeing it. #sorry

Initial reaction: Texas A&M d may have been good enough to make the playoff but the offense isn’t there.

Texas A&M, supposed playoff team, can’t score on the trash defense of my beloved Tarheels

Texas A&M are clowns for thinking they had a shot in the playoffs

People wanted Texas A&M in the playoff and they are losing to a short handed UNC team that lost to ND by two touchdowns
