The goalposts are constantly changing.
First it was conference championships, then strength of schedule, then the “eye test.”
Hell, if we are looking at one loss teams (and I know I said above they weren’t one of the best four) what are we now saying about Ohio State?
I mean, they have the best loss in the country now right? A 6 point loss on the road to the current #1 team in the country with the ball on the plus side of the 50 and :34 seconds left.
It’s all so dumb and will be taken care of next year. Team #12 can argue all they want but they won’t have a leg to stand on.
This came down to the fact that the SEC has won 6 of true 9 CFP’s and they didn’t want to leave them out. Plain and simple. Saban’s comments LAST year made them hesitant to screw them again.
