I would also tweak the system a little bit. I would give each team one more regular season game but do away with the conference title games. What started as a money grab continue to be a money grab that all too often fail to deliver. I would add a 13th game because of the economics of college football, big programs need the revenue, by adding one more game it would give them another chance to sign a home and home series with another power team. I would limit playing FCS teams to once every 3 years (those games are necessary because the FCS teams need the payday) and try and curb teams playing cupcakes in week 12 of the regular season.
I want to know the quality of team beaten. For example look at this season Miami was ranked 7th at the time they played FSU. Any football fan knew that was an inflated rating and when FSU was a two TD+ favorite they knew that wasn't indicative of the ranking. The same Miami team that was ranked 7th has now fallen out of the rankings with a loss to football powerhouse Duke. At the same time OSU played a very good Wisconsin early in the season who had a high 20's ranking. As the season has played out people realized how good that Wisconsin team is. What is a better win in your opinion, Miami or Wisconsin? When rankings are subjectively set early in the season, teams are over ranked and under ranked and it takes time to play out. You shouldn't get credit for beating a bad team that was poorly ranked. Florida was ranked 10th to start the season, should you get credit for beating a Florida team that won't make a bowl and lost to Georgia Southern?

Hey everyone - instead of talking about the SEC and FSU, let us not forget THE GAME is this weekend.
We could go in circles with examples, but to me the issue is saying a team beat a top-10 team X times this year is way too vague.
Let's Go Buckeyes!
There are no hunting accidents...It's called kharma.
Go Bucks !!!
(and go War Eagle)
There just went a bunch of free car dreams down the drain......
Great game so far. A combined 35 points in 15½ minutes. I don't have a dog in this hunt, so it's nice to just sit back and enjoy a rivalry match-up like this one. It appears the defenses are taking that same approach.
P.S. -- Marcus Hall probably won't be getting any Christmas cards from Michigan fans.
