Try to think back to before the bowls and decide who would be in... Alabama and Notre Dame would be locks, but then what? Florida? Georgia beat them head to head. Do the Dawgs get punished for winning their division and losing to Bama? Oregon? Didn't win their conference and lost to Stanford. The Cardinal were PAC 12 champs and beat Oregon but had 2 losses (Notre Dame not bad, Washington= BAD.) Kansas St? Meh... Texas A&M had the best win, but also had 2 losses. Post bowl games, I don't think anyone could argue that they would be top 4. Florida St? What if Ohio St was eligible?
I guess I would take
1 Notre Dame vs 4 Oregon
2 Alabama vs 3 Florida
Georgia is out by playing a defacto play in game. K St never impressed me much.
I think the 4 best teams are Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M, and Oregon.
Gonna be a lot of ticked off people once it starts, and I personally am not looking forward to it. I like the system the way it is, but we'll see. Thoughts?
