AP Top 25 Podcast: Too much strength of schedule talk

By The Associated Press

Just about every college football argument eventually gets around to somebody exclaiming: "Y'all ain't played nobody."

But has all the talk about strength of schedule gotten mind-numbing instead of helpful?

In the latest AP Top 25 College Football Podcast, Steve Godfrey of SB Nation joins AP's Ralph Russo to talk about strength of schedule and all the problems that come with over emphasizing it.

Godfrey and Russo also discuss why college football needs to think nationally even as the power concentrates in the Southeast.

Plus, rehashing the Alabama-Clemson national championship game. Why it's interesting to dig into the blowout, but why it really doesn't matter.
