not at all, if Ok St had beaten Iowa St or Stanford had beaten Oregon, they would have played for the title. Why does everyone act like those teams didn't lose? If bama had lost another game they certainly wouldn't have been in the title game.
All of this nonsense comes down to the same old thing we always have, when you have teams with the same number of losses at the end of the year, you have to pick one to play in the title game. You guys just don't like the one they picked.
