    What do they say their mission is?

    For purposes of any four-team playoff, the process will
    inevitably need to select the four best teams from among
    several with legitimate claims to participate.

    And what do they consider?

    Conference championships won, strength of schedule,
    head‐to‐head competition, comparative outcomes of common
    opponents (without incenting margin of victory), and, other
    relevant factors such as unavailability of key players and
    coaches that may have affected a team’s performance during
    the season or likely will affect its postseason performance

    The order this year will be Michigan 1 Washington 2 Texas 3 fsu 4

    If you take them at their word, I think it should be:


    Note that I don’t believe Texas HAS to be ranked ahead of bama due
    to hth, and this is a very close call imo due to the hugeness of the
    ga win(which may be the two best teams in the country in the game of
    the year) but I gave Texas the edge and committee will too

    No, no undefeated power 5 team has ever been left out, but losing the
    QB who beat LSU and playing in a weaker conference should matter. If
    the third stringer had lit it up, it might be different, but if
    picking the best team is the goal, they won't elevate FSU. You can't
    leave out Alabama, champion of the conference which has won 13 of the
    last 17 championships.
