Lol have you ever watched sports before? There's no way to say what you are saying. Underdogs win all the time.
In 2014, OSU was a 10 point dog against Bama and 7.5 point dog against Oregon. No way those games would be competitive, right?
OSU in 2002 was probably the greatest upset in terms of underdogs. What I’m saying is expanding is pointless because these semifinal games are repeatedly trash, auto bids would be a joke, and teams like Georgia and Ohio State would get mulligans for losses basically.
I remember hearing the SEC commish say pretty much we can’t expand without auto bids for conference champs, so Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Washington get in and are your top 5 while Notre Dame, Georgia and Michigan are the at larges. And then as you said underdogs win all the time imagine if you had teams like Northwestern pull off the upset?
That format in 2012 would have produced #13 Florida State, unranked Wisconsin, #8 Stanford, #2 Alabama and #7 Kansas State with your highest at large seeds being #1 Notre Dame, #3 Florida and #4 Oregon
