Minnesota LB Campbell: TCU 'a lot' better than Ohio State

BY foxsports • November 16, 2014

Who's in? Who's out?

Right now, after Week 12 of college football, those are the two questions on everybody's mind as we inch closer to the inaugural College Football Playoffs.

And if it comes down to it, should the Big 12's 9-1 TCU Horned Frogs earn a spot, or should it go to the 9-1 Ohio State Buckeyes of the Big 10?

If everything remains the same, that's a question the selection committee will be forced to answer, but until that happens, one person is giving his two cents.

Minnesota linebacker De'Vondre Campell talked to the media following the Gophers' 31-24 loss to the Buckeyes Saturday. When asked if his opponent deserved a spot in the playoffs, Campbell said he thought TCU was "a lot" better than Ohio State.

So, what makes him an expert? The Gophers also played the Frogs earlier this season and lost 30-7.

Now, Campbell's recommendation may not mean much to the selection committee, but I'm sure TCU will be happy having Campbell as a character witness should they need to present their case to the committee before the final selections are set in stone.
