    That's a thing? CAS can tell a national body how to run its organization? I like the outcome, but seems like an overreach. I thought CAS just adjudicated competition appeals.

    Oh.
    Clemson has the LEAST chance of losing, so they ARE in.
    OhSt will handle Wisc, but LSU could be upset by Ga (but they won't be).
