Exactly! Perceived SOS is determined by the Preseason polls which IMO are

not reflective of the true competitive level of teams. See UNC, etc. Granted, I know a poll is needed for comparisons but the AP and Coaches should wait until Week 4 I believe before they publish their 1st poll. Even then it would still favor the cartel conferences. Until that favoritism is broken, it will always be the case. Which is why each 10 FBS Conference Champ should gain an automatic birth in an expanded playoff. Then add in at-large teams. Whether that is 16, 20, 24, or 32 teams, that would be fair. Would also prepare athletes for NFL careers (i.e. 16 to 18 games/season).
