When 6 of the top-10 teams are from a single conference and no other conference has more than 1 top-10 team, it's a pretty weak statement to claim "WELL WELL WELL YOU DIDN'T EVEN WIN YOUR CONFERENCE! DURRRRRRRR" when the other conferences are MUCH easier to win.
This is the same dumb logic that would suggest that the AFC doesn't deserve to be in the Super Bowl because they are playing inferior to the NFC this year. Or the same dumb logic that would suggest that the entire decade from 2000-2010, the Yankees should have played the Red Sox in the world series every year.
The best two teams don't always play in championship games. In college football, there are too few games, and half of those games or more are against shitty competition. The ONLY way to compare two teams is if they are in the same conference. For a sport that already relies too heavily on opinion, why in the world would you take away the only tiebreaker that's truly objective?
