    What Saban has accomplished can't be disputed but so tired of the cult of Bama.

    Clearly the playoff is better than the old BCS but goddamn if the whole thing doesn't still fall short.

    If you're looking at actual resumes, USF is somewhat more deserving of being ranked than Fresno, regardless of who lost and who won last week. USF has two narrow losses to a very good team and an okay team. Fresno has two utter blowout losses to (at the time) top 10 teams and a closer loss to a poor team, with their only advantage being that their win over Boise is more impressive than any of USF's wins. To me, one superior win does not outweigh (a) having more losses and (b) getting your ass kicked in by the two best teams you played.

    Spot on.....and the reason for that is that as long as you have people's opinions as the basis of the rankings, you will have inequity and controversy.
    The rules being what they may be, I've heard all the spin, and no matter if the Buckeyes rout the Badgers, there's no way in good conscience could I say OSU with 2 losses, including a blowout loss to Iowa, had a better season that Alabama who lost only to highly ranked Auburn. (and I say this as a fiercely devoted OSU fan.)
    The problem is the rules. The National championship should be a tournament of Champions, first and foremost. There is no way that you should be national champion if you can't win your own conference. If you want others included, then you'll have to expand to 6 or 8 teams...certainly doable....but Champions should be in first. Those are teams that have won it ON THE FIELD...not in the perception and predjudice of a poll voter.
