FBS Playoff Ratings vs. Roby Ratings (11/5)

There are some major issues with the initial 2015 FBS Playoff rankings issued this Tuesday.  The Alabama Crimson Tide are in the top four.  An undefeated team, Memphis, beat the team that Alabama lost to AT HOME.  Claims about looking at “the body of work”, and “making conference championships a priority” just don’t wash.  Here’s the comparison of the rankings to the most current edition of the Roby Ratings.
