“Example Alabama loses and only drops 2 spots to move right back to a #2 position. A likes of OU, Kansas St, or Notre Dame had lost they would have dropped out of top 10 (as they did early on).”
Um, K-state did lose. They didn’t drop out. Oregon lost. They didn’t drop out. OK lost. They didn’t drop out. Till they lost another. As far as Notre Dame goes, they are playing in the Championship game. So, what’s your point again?
Subjective rankings need to be supplanted by an objective playoff.
