Not bad being No. 2 but if they do this in about 3 more years hopefully Clemson would be No. 1

If Clemson was not No. 2 I think everyone would have had an issue.

Cowherd will be disappointed to see Southern Cal #19 on that list...
Not so good for a "tier 1" program

And all but one of Cowherd's "Tier 1" programs are ranked behind Clemson, a "Tier 2" program according to Cowherd.

But guys, if their best coach of all-time went up against Dabo Swinney, Clemson's best of all-time, Clemson does not stand a chance ... oh wait! What?!

UGA: "Georgia is recruiting at an elite level and producing the NFL talent to match, but that national championship drought that extends back to 1980 still stands."

Ouch. I think they should give more weight to national recruiting championships.

I have changed the scale as shown below: My value is in red next to what they used.

National championships: 10 points each 10

National title game appearances: 5 points each 5

College Football Playoff appearances: 5 points each 3 Making the playoff should not be the same number of points as playing for the championship

New Year's Day Six/BCS bowl appearances: 3 points each 2

Heisman Trophy winners: 2 points each 0 Who cares?
