Forget that College Playoff Rankings crap. I like my postseason better.
I've done this for a few years now. My playoff is 12 teams where the champs of the big six conferences are automatically in, the top ranked champion from one of the other conferences and then five at-large bids (no more than three teams from one conference allowed). I seeded them by using the now-defunct BCS standings.
With the new way of college football, there is no BCS standings (I'm using a variation of that for this exercise) and there are now a big five conferences and not six. So, we will use the champs from those five leagues, the top champ from a non-five league and then six at-large bids.
And here is what I got:
FIRST ROUND BYES
1-Alabama (SEC champ)
2-Florida State (ACC champ)
3-Oregon (Pac 12 champ)
FIRST ROUND GAMES
12-Boise State (MWC champ) at 5-Baylor (Big 12 champ) 6p
11-Mississippi State at 6-Ohio State (Big Ten champ) 3p
10-Kansas State at 7-Michigan State 12p
9-Wisconsin at 8-Arizona 9p
What is interesting is that this weekend we will see Wisconsin play Ohio State, Arizona facing Oregon and Baylor hosting Kansas State ... meaning there will be a ton of movement among the playoff seedings before my final playoff bracket. Plus if Missouri upsets Alabama, the Tigers will then qualify for a playoff spot and most likely knock Mississippi State or one of the losers of the aforementioned games out of the postseason.
