    Where would a team be ranked if they had a 0-12 season against the final top 12 teams if their total margin of loss was not more than 20 pts.

    I'm thinking unranked, but if that ever happens, I hope we see that There's a problem with rankings and how we rank teams.

    That sort of anomaly would be incredible to have in cfb

    where would you think they would deserve to be ranked. I'm not sure they would deserve to be ranked at all. I understand that SOS is a big factor, but if you can't win any games, you don't deserve to be ranked. A better question would be if they were 6-6.

    Sure I like that question.

    Sure you have to win games, but if you look at most ranked programs, they are all products of a high preseason ranking and beating teams they have no business losing to. There are some exceptions, but still.

    Had they a normal schedule with 4 big games and the rest fluff, they could have a normal record.

    Imagine if the rankings now were final.

    Alabama wins it all.

    Oregon
    Clemson
    Ohio state
    Florida state
    LSU
    Texas am
    Louisville (ok this one they should win)
    Ucla
    Miami
    South Carolina
    Baylor

    That's as hard a schedule as you can get and playing each team close would be amazing.

    My friend asked me this and I honestly don't know.

    0-12 doesn't deserve to be ranked regardless of strength of schedule, but AD who agreed to that schedule should be forced to ride the bus with the Grambling football team.

    It is a hypothetical that could never possibly happen.
