Florida State could still play for CFP National Championship if Mike Pence has the courage

A message from Florida State regarding the PHONY and RIGGED College Football Playoff selections:

I’d like to provide the American people with an update on our efforts to protect the integrity of our very important College Football Playoff selection process.

If you count the legal votes, Florida State easily won entry into the four-team field. If you count the illegal votes, then they stole the selection from us, keeping Florida State out of the playoff even though we posted a 13-0 record and a victory in the ACC Championship Game.

Clearly Florida State's chance at championship was STOLEN

This is a clear case of selection interference, and we’re looking very strongly at interference from big media, big money and big tech. The woke Radical Leftist Communist Marxists were likely involved as well, and we will find them and they will be held responsible.

Florida State is not in the CFP semifinals despite an undefeated season.

Prior to Sunday’s TOTALLY RIGGED announcement that Florida State was not one of the four teams selected for the College Football Playoff – despite incredible polling numbers, the kind of numbers nobody has ever seen – we were winning among all the key committee members, by quite a lot actually.

DeSantis who? Nikki Haley's GOP ascent adds to the well-deserved humiliation of desperate Ron DeSantis

And then our number started miraculously getting whittled away in secret, and they wouldn’t allow legally permissible observers into the selection room.

This is a corrupt system.

This is a matter of College Football Playoff selection security

Our goal is to defend the integrity of the selection. We’ll not allow the corruption to steal such an important selection or any selection, for that matter. And we can’t allow anybody to silence our great Florida State supporters and manufacture results.

We’ve never seen such love and such affection and such spirit as we’ve seen for this. People know what’s happening, and they see what’s happening, and it’s before their eyes.

Officials at Michigan, Washington, Texas and Alabama – the universities whose teams were “selected” – never believed they could win this selection honestly. We really believe that. That’s why the selection committee did the mail-in ballots, where there’s tremendous corruption and fraud going on. That’s why they mailed out ballots without any verification measures whatsoever.

If they did this to FSU, they can do it to you

This was unprecedented in American history. This was by design. Despite years of claiming to care about the selection security, they refuse to include any requirement to verify committee-member signatures and identities, or to even determine whether committee members are eligible or ineligible to select.

Checkmate, haters! A message from George Santos after the House voted to expel him

People are walking into that selection committee meeting and nobody even knows who they are. The workers are writing down things and doing a lot of bad things. And we have a lot of information coming out in about two weeks, and it will shake you up and reveal corruption like you’ve never seen.

Does anyone really think Texas, with one loss, won the selection over us? It’s an old, weak program, and we’re supposed to believe they got more votes than Florida State, with our huge crowds and the passion and and all the great love?

A simple message from Florida State: Stop the steal

Our country has had enough. We will stop the steal. This was not a close selection and we clearly won, fair and square.

America is blessed with College Football Playoff selections. All over the world they talk about our selections. But you know what the world says about us now? They say we don't have free and fair selections.

Sad.

Hopefully Mike Pence will intervene to give FSU justice

The truth is, we won the selection in a landslide. This was a landslide.

And now, if former Vice President Mike Pence does the right thing, we win the selection. It’s that simple. Let’s hope Mike does the right thing.

Perhaps former Vice President Mike Pence can help Florida State stop the steal.

Florida State's fight will go on, because they won, and everybody knows it

But regardless, we will fight. We will fight like hell. And if you don't fight like hell, you're not going to have a College Football Playoff system anymore.

So we won the selection, clearly. And we will be there on Jan. 1 to play in either the Rose Bowl or the Sugar Bowl, it doesn’t matter which one.

Nothing can stop our movement, which is the greatest college football movement the world has ever seen.

Be there. Will be wild!
