Of the Power 5 Conferences, one had to get left out because of only the 4 spots at the top. BUT, strength of the conferences should have had a hand in it.
Out of all the conferences, the Big 10 is the weakest by far. Count how many Big 10 teams are in the Top 25, and then count the rest..........
Not even close. Don't try to tell me that population and the ensuing popularity of Ohio State didn't have a say-so in the matter.
There are 4 Big ten teams in AP top 25 and only 3 Big 12. There is also 4 big ten teams in playoff poll and only 3 big 12 teams
But there are 14 Big 10 teams total and only 10 Big 12 teams total.
33% of the Big 12 teams are in the CFP Poll
28.5% of the Big 10 teams are in the CFP Poll
78.5% of the SEC teams....................
You said to count. And only having ten teams cost a playoff spot, so go calculate that one into you equation.
