Hines Ward: Georgia’s No 2 ranking in College Football Playoff made him ‘feel some type of way’

The first College Football Playoff rankings had many baffled when Ohio State was placed at No. 1 ahead of Georgia, the AP’s No. 1 seed that has won back-to-back national titles. A former Bulldog admitted the announcement of the rankings did not sit well with him. 

“Yeah, I did feel some type of way in the sense that we’ve been at the top for a very long time,” Hines Ward, the two-time Super Bowl winner with the Pittsburgh Steelers who played at Georgia from 1994-1997, told Fox News Digital. “For us not to be on top for the playoffs [rankings], listen, it is what it is.

“We’re not the flashiest team. We just go out there and kick tail, kick butt every weekend. We have a great running game, a great defense by Kirby. So we’re not going to make excuses, and it’s not really how you start, it’s how you finish. At the very end, as long as we’re there playing in the championship game and going on our quest for another championship, that’s all that matters.” 

“If Georgia can run through that schedule the last four games, probably end up playing Alabama in the [SEC] Championship game,” he explained. “I foresee the Georgia Bulldogs being back in the playoffs, and regardless of whatever seed, it really doesn’t matter as long as they win that championship at the end of the day.”
