"The polls don't always measure strength of schedule. Some conferences are playing nine games, some are playing eight. The Pac-12 is playing nine and then to go out and play a round-robin game against us, that's 10 and some of them are going to play Notre Dame -- that's 11 difficult games. If they're ranked fifth in the country and they won a conference championship, I think that's quite an accomplishment. "Some teams don't even win their own division. They started off highly in the rankings, lose early, don't play a championship game and they might end up at four."Big Ten commissioner says non-division winners don't belong in college football playoffs | al.com Yeah, Jimmy Boy, I completely agree with you that strength of schedule should be a major factor in determining which teams make the playoff. ...which is the exact reason why your desire to have only conference champions makes no sense. The strength of schedule is not the same for everyone, which is why the #2 team in the SEC has probably beaten more quality teams than the winner of most of other leagues has. Sometimes I think this guy is just trolling me.
