: NFL money?
: Or, your 16th seeded team getting their balls blown off by Ohio State or Alabama while you suffer a career-ending injury during the game with no chance at the next level?
In fact, a quick interent search reveals multiple times in the last few years where teams ranked 10- 16 have defeated higher ranked teams. In 2014 #14 OSU beat #8 MSU. it happens every year.
This isn't basketball, where a 16 sead is at best the 62nd best team in the country. But in footbal #16 rarely gets rolled by 7 TD's against #1.
