    It seems the Committee is picking teams that have weak out of conference schedules…check Alabama and Georgia: they regularly play 8 conference games and one power 5 team for 9.
    I continue to think we are over scheduling ourselves compared to other power 5 teams…a 9 win season will have to be considered a darn good one

    That’s definitely a concern of Greg’s and mine. However, as long as your two OOC P5 games aren’t Alabama and Ohio State every year, it should be manageable.

    One other place it could hurt, though. If not in the CFP running, will the bowl matchmakers like an 8-4 or 9-3 WVU team with a P5 loaded schedule over, say, an OSU team with the same record or one more win against a lesser sched? The cynical side of me says no.
