Welcome back Valenth and hope you are hale and hearty. Your CFB posts are always interesting.

The only omission I see is Clemson in the ACC. Sleepers would be South Carolina, Nebraska, and Purdue. Muschamp has quietly assembled good talent at USC. Frost brings his magic to the Huskers while Brohm should continue Purdue's resurgence.

Alabama is a clear favorite to make the CFP with a bunch of two loss teams vying for the other three spots.

I think the following system works so much better for the CFP system:

8 team playoff

Top 4 ranked teams by the CFP Committee host the first round (bring some of the southern schools up north if thats how it shakes out and the committee ranking of the top 4 still matter. The hosting universities would make the profit on hosting the first round games.

The major bowls would host the 2nd round and the Championship game.

Winners of each Power 5 conference have automatic berth (make the conference championship worth what it used to be)
3 at large bids to be chosen by the CFP Committee (gives the Central Florida's of the world a chance to play while also taking the 2 second best teams from the power 5 conferences who lost in their conference championship game).

This also eliminates the down time of nearly 3 weeks between conference championship Saturday and the first Playoff game, while still giving the top 8 teams a good 2 weeks before the first playoff game to heal up.

I think that the NCAA will move toward this in the near future. It just makes too much sense.

To have 5 power conferences and 4 playoff spots is the dumbest thing the NCAA has ever done. They set themselves up for failure every year in the fact that the top teams from each power 5 conference could have the exact same record (no losses, one loss or even 2 losses) and the committee made up of humans would have to pick who to exclude from the top 4.

The current system makes no sense.

I totally agree Red! It is so stupid to only have 4 teams with 5 conferences. Unfortunately every time I see the chairman of the playoff committee being interviewed he acts like they are perfectly happy with 4 teams and no plans to change in the future. Probably take a team like Bammer to get left out then ol Nick would get the ball rolling.

We'll find out week one just how good FAU and Oklahoma are as they open with each other. I'm glad Lane Kiffin has a big mouth, that way the Sooners can drop some crap down it.
