    I guess they think the travelling bandwagon fanbase they have is important.

    Fuck them.

To me, USC actually has the better resume. Not that they deserve to be there, either.
    Alabama gets it because they are viewed as the best if even they haven't proven it on the field.

    Ohio State has a better resume but also 2 losses. If OSU were matched against Alabama today who would be favored to win? You'd probably have to say that Alabama would win that game.

    Also, nobody said the rules were that a conference winner is in. They are trying to get the better teams in. Who are the better teams? That is the bottom line.

    All this garbage does is leverage the opportunity to expand the playoff to 8 teams, which is what college football wants, anyway. Quite honestly, no team fit the #4 spot particularly well. Alabama (being the open hypocrites they are) shouldn’t be there because they’re violating their own “you shouldn’t get in if you didn’t win your conference” mantra. Ohio State was humiliated twice. USC was humiliated by Notre Dame. Wisconsin shit the bed when they had a chance to put a pretty little bow on the whole thing. Seriously, no team deserved to be there. So in light of that, one reasonable (albeit imperfect) approach would be to default to “the best team” argument. If you do that, you’d pick Alabama to beat Ohio State or USC, and by a very wide margin. It’s not perfect, but it is what it is.

    8 teams is the way to go.
