    Believe he was referring to Miami.

    I think you read it wrong, he's saying undefeated Miami's resume looks better than undefeated Alabama's resume, which I don't necessarily agree with as Alabama has played tougher opponents than Miami, just Miami has a much more marquee win in ND.

    I don't think Alabama has played tougher opponents. The SEC is basically hot garbage this year, and Bama hasn't played Auburn or Georgia yet.

    Guess I was living in recent hindsight with LSU and Mississippi State, even though the U had VT (who played horribly against Georgia Tech, but have a great defense), and ND back to back, though I'd give Alabama's win over Florida State more clout than Miami's win over Florida State, since they played Florida State when they had a full strength team, and now they're depleted and injured. To be honest neither is THAT impressive, but they're both undefeated. I'd take Miami's schedule though comparing the two, I think Duke, Syracuse, etc. are better than Vandy, Ole Miss as of right now.

    Wins over FPI top 50:
    Clemson, 8
    Miami, 6
    USC, 6
    Okla, 6
    TCU, 5
    UGA, 5
    Wazzu, 5
    ND, 5
    Stanford, 5
    ...
    Bama, 4
    Auburn, 4
    Wisconsin, 3
    Penn St, 3
    Ohio St, 2
    I still don't get the pushed narrative from the media that 2-loss OSU and Auburn are more deserving to be in the playoff over other 2 loss teams, 1 loss teams and even undefeated teams.

    Auburn isn't yet, but if they win the next two they will be.

    College football is stupid. Will Grier broke his finger, I'm only watching next week to say I kept my streak of 5 years without missing a WVU football game alive, but I'll be drinking heavily while Mayfield throws for 600 on us.
