    As I pointed out in an earlier post, not only would an 8-team format have made many pivotal regular season games meaningless but it would have made the Big 10, Big 12 and SEC championship games...

    What's silly is not being able to recognize the difference between Ohio State's non- conference schedule and Baylor's. No need for the straw men. By the way, in the two seasons that Oregon played for...

    We can only speculate on that since Nick Saban's Alabama team has been unique among FBS football teams over the last 12 years in that they don't lose to unranked teams. No other team can say that.
