College football has two issues in my opinion. The officiating is atrocious. The zebras are affecting the outcome of too many crucial games.
Secondly, Clemson. Did they deserve to be in the playoffs? Yes they did. They were clearly one of the top 4. Here’s my problem. They are pretty much a lock for the final 4 for the for seeable future. They don’t even have to be good enough. Why? Because they play in a cupcake schedule in a cupcake conference. When they play outside of the conference, they also play cupcakes. So they will be going undefeated for the foreseeable future. Guaranteeing them a spot in the playoffs. There are plenty of teams in the big ten, the SEC, the big 12 and maybe even a few in the AAC who could give them a game, if given a chance. Should Clemson be given the automatic birth every year? Even when they play a weaker schedule than Cincinnati?
