Explanations for the CFP Committee's apathy?

Post by cougarapologist »

I can only think of three:
1. These people honestly think BYU is not better than the teams above them;
2. They represent the P5, and so will only allow non-P5 access to the money when doing so will cause them a major blow to credibility (and BYU does not move the needle on that);
3. Wyoming connections see a shot to bring BYU down a peg.

If 1, then they don't actually watch games, they just say they do.
2 feels most likely, no reason to protect BYU as we don't contribute to their pot of money in any real way.
I can't believe 3 could be real in this day, but maybe I'm naive.

Other reasons?

I think people are thinking a Wyoming AD has faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar more cred than he does. He's probably just given a fistful of slim jims with some warm Mountain Dew and asked to sit in the corner, and that's probably heaven for him.

Cowherd is an absolute idiot. Does anyone remember what one of the commenters said right before the utes blew out Alabama in 2008? Yeah, the quote went something like "Alabama didn't recruit even 1 player on the utah team" Uh huh, the recruiting argument is absolute BS.

Who have the Cougars played? Our schedule is better than tOSU.

BYU OSU
BSU 26 Indiana 10
Houston 40 Rutgers 80
LA Tech 45 Nebraska 92
UTSA 53 Penn St 98

You can't penalize us for playing extra games and winning them.

But according to Collin Cowherd, tOSU has a roster full of NFL players so that qualifies them beyond their schedule. :roll:
