    Actually the current cfp format is arguably more favorable to a team like Clemson playing in a weak conference. If old bowl system had been in place last year Sugar likely takes ND over Clemson to face SEC champ Bama, then Clemson likely goes to Orange & plays Oklahoma. In that scenario Bama probably wins by a as big or a bigger margin than Clemson because Notre Dame was just not that good, and the pollsters/voters probably vote Bama #1 due to a much tougher schedule.

    Clemson can start their second teamers the rest of the regular season and win out.

    FIFY - and it's a lot of why that old system was a sick joke.
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.
