  Given that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away, it’s fitting that the College Football Playoff committee appears to see in Louisville what Neal Page saw in Del Griffith in the classic Thanksgiving movie, “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles”: I tolerate you, and you are clearly valuable in your craft, but…despite how positively everyone else views you, you annoy me and I really don’t like you.
