I really like the Idea of playing FSU.
I think Oregon will murder FSU's defense. Winston and the offense will keep it interesting - for 2 quarters maybe.

If they are going to do this song and dance every week moving TCU from #3 one week to #6 the following week after a dominant win might as well just do ONE selection show at end of the year

OK.
12 teams play the first week (6 games)
6 teams play the second week (3 games)
The three winners play one and a half games the third week? How does that work?

I think if you add more than 4 teams, college football loses its edge. Its why I never watch college BB. With 68 teams getting in, why watch the regular season at all. I love the way each and every week can be absolutely devastating to hopeful contenders. Every week feels like a playoff game, especially in the Pac 12.

So because Ohio State played good in one game now the Big Ten is garbage? The Big Ten has 4 teams ranked right now including two top ten teams.

Wisconsin is an average team. Their only good or decent win was Nebraska

Exactly! I said from the beginning that was stupid. If we wanted weekly rankings, we could have just kept the old system. They should just release their rankings at the end of the season.

I agree 4 teams are plenty. I'd like to see them tweak it a little and take everyone's worst lost and best win, throw them out and base it on their remaining body of work. That way everyone will get a break for having a bad game and one good win won't weigh so heavily. Also evaluate opponents w/l, head to head if applicable, points for and against and at the end if some smaller, less popular school gets in that's it, deal with it.
