(5) Western Michigan vs. Ohio. Broncos have a New Years day bowl in their sights, they won't mess it up
(8) Colorado vs. (4) Washington. Washington has the playoffs in its sights, they won't mess it up either. But congrats on the Rose Bowl bid Colorado, that's not a bad consolation prize.

Kansas State vs. TCU. Kansas State is 7-4?? Really?? Seems like every week I was watching them they were losing.
Temple vs. (13) Navy. And the bowls will not be happy as they'll have to wait until after next Saturday's game vs. Army to set the bowl schedule.
Louisiana Tech vs. Western Kentucky. Toppers run to the top of C-USA.
(10) Oklahoma State vs. (7) Oklahoma. Seems like every time they play in Stillwater with the Pokes playing for something, the Pokes get crushed (see: 2015), whereas in Norman its like they have no pressure because no one expects them to win. They actually won in 2014 their last trip to Norman, and since 2012 the Sooners are winning by an average of 23 points in Stillwater (2-0) compared to winning by only 3 in Norman in 2012 and losing by 3 in 2014. Close game, and I'll take the Pokes
Baylor vs. (12) West Virginia. Who remembers when Baylor was undefeated?? Yah, neither do I!
(1) Alabama vs. (18) Florida. If Alabama loses they are still in the playoffs anyways, so that's why I debated picking Florida, but I'll take the Tide in a closer than expected game.
San Diego State vs. Wyoming. San Diego State for the Mountain West title.
(3) Clemson vs. (15) Virginia Tech. Welcome to the playoffs Clemson!
(6) Wisconsin vs. (9) Penn State. If you like 12-10/9-7 defensive, grind it out games, than this game is perfect for you.

This is the simple system, as I have to wait for Sagarin to update his conference rankings before I can use that modifier, but worth posting so you can see how now the top 4 has changed LOL.



1) Alabama (1)
2) Clemson (3)
3) Ohio State (2)
4) Penn St. (6)
5) Washington (7)
6) W. Michigan (5)
7) Michigan (4)
8) Oklahoma (12)
9) Wisconsin (8)
10) Boise St. (9)
11) Colorado (10)
12) FSU (11)
13) USC (13)
14) USF (14)
15) W. Kentucky (NR)
16) Temple (NR)
17) Nebraska (16)
18) Navy (15)
19) Tennessee (18)
20) Louisville (19)
21) Wash St. (21)
22) Appalachian St. (NR)
23) Oklahoma St (20)
24) Houston (22)
25) Florida (25)

Dropping out: West Virginia; Iowa; Stanford


Hopefully I can post the adjusted poll sometime tomorrow, but on first glance, I think the top 4 are probably right.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Penn St. get in over Washington.

looking forward to the picks today; guess we will rush home from church, but stop first at the convenience store and pick up a breakfast pizza so I won't have to cook; make a Bloody Mary and just watch the picks.

So far the weekend hasn't been kind to us: Navy Fans; disappointed big time: CU got their you know whats kicked but at least WV did it and our beloved Aztecs hung in there.

Oh, they do the playoff picks in the morning (morning for me anyway). I thought they did it at night, at least a couple years ago.

I ain't surprised one bit Ohio State's still going to the playoff.

This'll help pave the way for an 8-team playoff.

You shouldn't be, as they have the best resume of any team in the country.

For some reason I thought they said WVA lost to Baylor., which is why they dropped out.

I will not bother re-posting these, as I will just wait for the Sagarin update and then post the revised formula's version.

4 team playoff is fine. If they go to 8 itll just make more games at the end irrelevant. College is exciting because every weekend matters.

However they could have just avoided this whole committee thing and taken the top 4 of the BCS.

They got it right

penn state two losses got them out

however michigan is the one who got hurt!

All they had to do was beat osu and win your conference champion.

Then they be in.

But either way osu vs clemson is gonna be classic match up!
