Can someone who understands college football better than me (which is most everyone) explain something to me? In reading about the Alabama-LSU game, I see many references to this being important because until now Alabama's schedule was weak. They only played one ranked team - #22 Tex A&M. Fair enough. But why does nobody criticize Clemson's schedule? In fact, I have been reading that Clemson has one of the toughest schedules in the country. Yet they will finish the season with no games against a Top 10 team, and have only played #16 NC State and have #22 BC upcoming. I do not doubt that Clemson is good, but isn't their schedule just a bunch of cupcakes? It certainly does not seem tougher than Alabama's schedule.
