    Another season of my favorite sport!

    I see Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State making the playoffs (if OSU can avoid another meltdown). Any predictions for the 4th team? Anyone else see a different set of playoff teams?

    That works. Oddly, that is the 4 teams that have been in the playoffs more than once.

    4 teams selected each of the 4 years the playoffs have existed. Those 4 teams account for 11 of the 16 spots over 4 years.

    When I look at oklahomas schedule I do not see many stumblling blocks. Only TCU and maybe west va. I think Oklahoma takes care of both and possible undefeated goiong into the post season.. TCU is the main threat to Oklahoma and hey have to play the Buckeyes and Oklahoma nealy back to back. Ohio State has a tougher road with possible stumbling blocks with TCU,Penn State,Michigan and Michigan State. I beleive that Oklahoma benfits from TCU having to take on the Buckeyes. TCU will still be feeling that game two weeks later. I am acutually more sure about the Oklahoa pick than the Buckeye pick as I am still worried about the OSU pass defense

    It doesn't matter what the 3 teams below Bama will be. The Tide will roll again!

    It will be one helluva game. Alabama will have a ton of offensive weapons. And Clemson will have a D line full of first round draft picks.

    Ok, time to revise the predictions. Even if Urban Meyer survives this, it will be enough of a distraction to prevent them making the playoffs.

    Washington?
    Wisconsin?
    Georgia? (if their only loss is to Bama in the SEC Championship it is possible)
