"You managed to get to the CCG and beat this team, but actually, we think they're still better so sorry, but you're out."
This is absolutely absurd. I get the idea but it's stupid. It's SEC logic in that it doesnt really matter if you lose. Bama gets beat by some SEC team and 'oh well, they play a gauntlet, they're bound to lose at some point so it shouldn't matter because they're still better.'
It would literally increase the problem we already have with these teams getting preferential treatment because they appear to be better, results be damned. Do I think 2014 OSU was better than alabama? No, I don't and if Lane Kiffin had ran Derrick Henry all game, OSU loses. But they didnt and OSU won. Should we say that alabama gets to play for the title anyway even though they lost because we think Alabama is better? That's the argument here.
