Basketball and baseball are both seeded based on a panel of coaches and not merely based on record. Why doesn't football do this and is it even able to be proposed and voted on? Would be nice to be able to get rid of 8-1 / 9-0 teams with high seeds and home games getting blown out in the first round. Shouldn't seeding be based on merit rather than simple record? 3.8 gpa from a state school isn't the same as 3.8 gpa in the ivy league. And 9-0 in the public league ain't the same as 9-0 in the CCL.
