Prepare brain for implosion...

But the Playoff has hurt No. 1.

Whether it was a one-loss Alabama team that clearly led the NCAA field in 2014 or undefeated Clemson in 2015 or undefeated Bama in 2016, these teams were the class of college football all year long — to only get dumped into a four-team blender at the end of the year. It’s almost a coin toss whether No. 1 can win two more games or not. So far, the coin has come up against No. 1 — which at some point, will devalue the whole enterprise.

Translation: Earning CFP championship via two wins is a "coin toss" as opposed to being out-prepared, out-coached, out-played, and out-scored on game day. Got it.
