I agree with what you're saying. HFA doesn't always get it. However, it is nice knowing that you have the inside track to hosting the Conference Championship game. Had last years Championship game been played at Baltimore, it wouldn't surprise me if Baltimore won. Home Field advantage can go a very long way in that last game.
