Unfortunately, the season did not end with as many undefeated teams as I had hoped. Only Alabama and Boise State ended with zero losses. However, of the teams that did not get a shot at the title (i.e. other than Florida and Texas), we had two that ended with one loss (TCU, Cincinnati) and five that ended with two losses (Central Michigan, Ohio State, Iowa, Penn State, BYU) . That’s seven teams that should have had a shot at the title. Why include teams with two losses? The 2007/2008 season clearly showed that you are eligible for the championship even with two losses as LSU who was ranked fifth going into the end of the season was vaulted up to the championship game.
Perhaps I should keep a tally of how many teams each year never get a legitimate shot at the title despite similar records to other teams in the same year.
