No, you're right, it doesn't. But we'll never have a perfect system for figuring out who the undisputed better team is under every scenario. I prefer to leave it up to each conference to figure out the best way to produce a champion and then let the champions duke it out for the national championship. Your preference (for the four best teams) isn't illegitimate, it's just not as good as mine.
