How are they different than 2017 Penn State? Lost early in the season to a mediocre ACC team, lost big to a conference rival and then won out beating a top 2 Ohio State en route to be a 2 loss conference champion. LSU's losses were also a neutral site game in New Orleans and at home, Penn State's were both on the road. Oh and then a 1 loss Pac 12 team made the CFP over Penn State but apparently since LSU has SEC on their jerseys the rules get changed. I mean, it's whatever since they would have proven they belonged by beating UGA end of season but this is more about the inconsistency of the committee's reasoning in the process. This is why we need set criteria and not just 12 people in a room saying "eye test" since the eye test can be whatever you want it to be and you can ignore **** like struggling vs Arkansas with a back-up and third string QBs if you so choose. My biggest issue is the lack of consistency in criteria. One year it's "The Best Four Teams!" and the next it's "The best resume!". I mean let's be honest, OSU and UM are clearly both in the "Best Four Teams" camp. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
