That's the point -- there's more to a resume than just "Team X lost to a better team than Team Y, therefore Team X is superior."
You can't boil the decision down to just that.
Would the situations were changed and it was Boise State whose 1 loss came to LSU while Alabama had lost to TCU, would you say Boise State automatically makes the national title game because it's 1 loss was to the #1 overall team?
