OK
Kansas and OSU are pretty good teams this year. OSU currently ranked and Kansas was, before their QB got hurt. No way Ole Miss should be ahead of OU.

So a loss to Kansas by a few points is "much worse" than getting drove by Georgia? I don't remember the exact score, but i think Ole Miss got beat by 50. Kansas actually a great example of what i was talking about...Kansas is 8-4 and currently unranked by the committee. Tennessee is 8-4 and ranked 25th. So, we have to assume Tennessee is better than Kansas because the committee says so, right?

I don't assume anything because the committee says so and I don't agree with everything the committee does. I just have no problem with them putting UT, AL, MI, and UW ahead of FSU this year. As to Kansas and TN, it's not just the CFP, but also AP and coaches put TN ahead.

TN Losses (all ranked teams at the time played):
Fla.
Al.
Mo.
Ga

KS Losses:
UT
OSU
Texas Tech (unranked)
K.State

KS beat OU - that was impressive, but losing to Texas Tech hurt
TN didn't have any win as impressive, but it didn't have any crappy losses either

How is losing to Florida not a crappy loss but Kansas losing to Tech is? Florida is 5-7...Tech 6-6.

And I'm not picking on the committee...I think ESPN's 20 year spin has had its effect on all the polls. Human rankings are opinion...nothing else.

Well I must agree with you that much the same as when America votes on the best singer on the voice, by definition they are clearly the best singer on the show.
