I know that you were joking, I was actually jabbing the guy for getting angry at sarcastic predictions. Geesh, now we can't joke on a thread.

Does anyone else think this year's title game will lose some luster given the 4 team playoff is coming in next season?

No. The bcs was the first ever college playoff and it didnt take away anything from the previous champs. It left some banter just as the new system will as well.


Where's your picks aggy?

I wouldn't be booking Alabama for a trip to the NC game yet. They lost so much talent on that OL that it isn't a guarantee. They lost two 1st round picks (Warmack and Fluker) and another guy that is a first round talent, but has injury problems (Jones, All-American at 3 different positions: C, OG, RT).

Ohio State...they are very likely to go undefeated, but the computers won't like their easy schedule. I could see a one loss team with a tougher schedule jump them in the BCS poll.

I don't see Clemson, Florida State, or South Carolina because they find a way to lose a big game.

I am going out on a ledge and predicting...

Oregon v. Georgia

Oregon lost Chip Kelly, but they didn't lose the speed and talent they have on their roster. Oh, and their new coach was their OC from 2009-2012. I don't expect them to skip a beat.

Georgia is returning just about everybody on offense (10 of 11). While Bama has better overall depth at RB, Georgia's one-two is light years ahead (Todd Gurley & Keith Marshall). They only have 4 starters returning to their D, but non-starters on D play a lot more than non-starters on O, so that is a moot point. The only concern is Recht's trouble with top level teams.

Alabama 27 vs. Stanford 6.

After Texas A&M on the 8th, Saban can start the 4th stringers the schedule is that easy after that (LSU is in Tuscaloosa this year. Granted I know the Tigers won the last time they played there, but still...). Alabama should have no problem with UGA/USC in the SEC title game. Even if they lose to A&M (I doubt it), that's way early and they can make their way back to #1. Stanford is the sole beneficiary of Chip Kelly leaving Oregon (and the fact that Stanford/Oregon game is on the farm I believe).

It would be nice to see some variety versus the usual teams of late (LSU, Alabama, Ohio State and Oregon). I'm personally pulling for a Louisville, Clemson, Georgia and Michigan State kind of mix. An undefeated Boise State/Northern Illinois/Tulsa/LA Tech (or similar team) would be awesome too.
