I think all your points are valid but I think you left out tv ratings as a major motivator for the committee. Size of fan base and sec bias aside, they also want to get the best games which typically translates to higher ratings & more advertising dollars. I’m SURE after seeing the ACC championship ratings & what an ugly display of football FSU brought that they went with what should be a better matchup between Alabama & Michigan. I definitely am much more interested to sit down & watch that as opposed to Michigan-FSU
