Those rankings aren't very meaningful. They can wildly thrown off by the level of competition.


So, the offensive rankings aren't meaningful but the defensive rankings are? Because the fact that OSU's defense was ranked low was repeatedly used as a rationale for why they do not belong.

How many times did we hear Brent talk about the "top ranked" Alabama defense in the NC game? But you are correct, the level of competition matters. I highly doubt Alabama's defense would be top ranked if they played in a league that had offense. They would be good, but not top ranked.
