So would a 4 loss Alabama. At some point the games played have to count for something.

True, which is why the games played do count for something though. The job of the committee is to get the 4 best teams in the playoffs. Not the 4 best records.

There's a lot of 2 and 3 loss teams that would be undefeated with Cincinnati's 48th ranked strength of schedule.

A 4 loss Alabama wouldn't be in the discussion as one of the 4 best teams. However, a 2 loss Alabama with a loss to aTm and a potential loss to Georgia in the SEC Championship is obviously a strong possibility as one of the 4 teams in the country. Alabama has played the top Strength of Schedule in the country already and haven't even played Auburn and Georgia yet.

I think the people who watch all the games understand a team like Cincy or Oklahoma doesn't play aTm, Ole Miss, Miss. St., Arkansas, Miami, LSU, Tennessee, Auburn and Georgia and come out with only 2 losses.

Notre Dame can't be one of the 4 best teams no matter what, they've already been blown out by Cincinnati and have demonstrated their inability time and again to compete in the playoffs. Furthermore, they don't play in a Conference Championship Game like everybody else does, and Conference Championships are one of the main criteria that must be weighed.

Georgia, Ohio St., Alabama, Cincinnati, Michigan, and potentially Oklahoma St. are the only teams left with any real case to be among the 4 best teams in the country today - and they will sort themselves out over the next 2 weeks.

Those 6 teams make up the 2 best offenses in the country, and the 4 best defenses. There are no holes to be punched. It's air tight.

Absolutely. Name 4 teams who would be favored against Alabama. Can’t do it. So that tells me……

Disclaimer: not an Alabama fan but respect the program and dig the uniforms.

I don’t like teams winning the national championship, but losing their conference championship. It just isn’t logical. Sadly that will continue to happen occasionally.

Alabama has enough pelts on the wall to warrant an exception. A 2 loss Alabama would still be a 15 point favorite over ND or Oklahoma.
Let's not have a regular season then...

Let's just pick the blueblood programs the public votes they would like to see....
