Which ones? Mississippi State became highly ranked by playing a rather weak early schedule, and now that they're playing quality teams, they're out. The only teams they've beaten with a winning record are Jackson State and Middle Tennessee.

You really think eg. an until today unbeaten Louisville is better than an unranked SEC team which still has a positive or even record?

Hard to say. College football has a really short reg season and a lot of the teams don't play each other. College football is a sport full of assumptions.

Maybe my earlier statement was a bit of an overreaction, but it's a shame that because of the fact that a conference is extremely stacked, some teams won't even sniff the MNC and an overrated team like ND is really close.

That's the nature of college football, and one of the reasons for a need of a playoff system. If ND continues to luck out and is one of 2 undefeated teams remaining, then they should be in there, whether you or I like it or not. OSU won it all back in 2002 when they had a number of close calls with a bunch of mediocre teams.
