Notre Dame proved it did not belong in the top 4. Neither did oklahoma. Georgia and Ohio state should have been in the top 4. ND I believe only played 4 rranked teams.

Bama and Clemson had to work harder in scrimmages than in those two games.

Rather than just saying no they don't belong in the final 4, here's my reason. Ohio State lost to Purdue 49 -20, who finished the season 6-7 and lost the final game to Auburn 63-14. Ohio State gave up 51 points to Maryland, who they only beat in overt-time by 1 when Maryland's 2 point conversion failed. Maryland finished 5-7 and lost games to Michigan, Iowa, Michigan State, Penn State and Indiana. Maryland's victories came over teams like Bowling Green, Towson, Minnesota, and Temple to name a few.

Ohio State did well in their conference, but didn't dominate like a national champion should. Their big victories came against teams like Tulane, Rutgers, Minnesota, they did beat their rival Michigan by 23, but Michigan trounced by Florida 41-15 last week in the Peach Bowl.

I think they got the final 4 right, it's just that Alabama and Clemson are both so much better than anyone else.

Notre Dame should join a conference and play in a conference championship game. If they joined the ACC they would have had to play Clemson to get the playoff, if they joined the SEC they would have to play Ala or UGA. Of course then they would have to share the revenues with the other conference members, right now its all their money.
I personally would like to see a 6 team format with the top 2 teams getting a bye and the #3 seed play the #6 seed and the #4 seed play the #5 seed.
