They put the 2016 game too high, as it was high-level and fun, but Clemson didn’t have a chance to take the lead after the score and onside. I’d bump OSU-Miami, though if I did, it would be more about dropping that game and not knowing a thing about the older ones. And that was a really good game.
It also tells me we remain good at seeing patterns or not seeing patterns that make us mad. It is not claiming Bama’s Last three title runs are in there. It’s claiming three Titles games Bama was in are in there, two wins, one loss. And two of those absolutely deserve to be in there.

 Just spitball guess because that game was fantastic. Maybe it is docking points because it needed the other game to fully decide the championship. 
Not that I agree or don’t agree, just saying that might be the approach there.
