...and Michigan doesn't drop at all, which is 100% the correct call considering who all else lost this weekend. Clemson's loss at home to Pitt was worse than Michigan's road loss to Iowa, and the committee was clearly just looking for any excuse to keep Washington out of the top 4 considering their overall schedule. And they didn't bite on the notion of the AP and coaches polls that Louisville should be ahead of Clemson since Clemson won head to head. The correct top 4 is set right now:
1)Bama 2)OSU 3) Michigan 4) Clemson
...everything will shake out in the next two weeks but right now, this is correct. My only gripe is Western Michigan still being 21 despite being undefeated. Their schedule matches up enough with the likes of Boise this year, they should be at least 15...
I'm in full "watch the world burn" mode. Go MSU, Wisconsin, Auburn, Florida, South Carolina, Va Tech, USC, Colorado. I want every team to have 2 losses so we can finally stop this 4 team charade and make it an 8 team playoff like it always should have been.
It never made sense to have a 4 team playoff when you're already declaring a "power 5" of conferences. You're guaranteeing at least one conference champ gets left out; two if you decide the "Holy SEC" deserves 2 or if ND puts together a good season again.
