Why Deion Sanders is siding with Florida State following the College Football Playoff rejection

Deion Sanders isn't upset that his alma mater, Florida State, was left out of the College Football Playoff.

The committee dropped undefeated Florida State out of the College Football Playoff on Sunday

after the Seminoles lost starting quarterback Jordan Travis, in favor of one-loss Alabama.

Sanders, who was a star player on Bobby Bowden's Florida State team in the late 1980s and is now the head coach at Colorado

was asked on the "Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz" how upset he was about the situation.

"I can't say I'm surprised. We're competing with them in the recruiting process. You have to realize that. "This is now business," Sanders stated.

"Many people don't see it as a business." This is entertainment, but it is also business, in my opinion.

So you're not going to leave Coach [Nick] Saban and Alabama out of the playoffs."

Sanders and Saban have been in Aflac advertisements together, and the two are known to be friendly.
