In that case you are penalizing Alabama for


being in the same division as Auburn losing on the road to them and thus the tiebreaker. Georgia got housed by Auburn and would have been left out of the championship if they were in the same division as Auburn. Conferences and divisions are arbitrary in the grand scheme. Focusing on conference champions assumes all conferences and even divisions are equal. The committee is trying to find the best four teams in the nation - not the best of random subsets of teams. Conferences and conference championships predate the playoffs. Just because they are there doesn't mean you should only look at that if you are truly looking for the best four.
