I do think the SEC should discontinue required permanent opponents but much of the other points are shallow IMO. What it does illustrate is how much schedules can vary in college football and for that reason, I'm amazed that records mean as much as they do. LSU has about 4 games next year that will be tougher than say Notre Dame's yet a one loss LSU team will be ranked lower than an undefeated ND team. Unlike most any other sport, one football schedule may not even include one common team with another schedule. Given that, why rank them so closely based on record?
