My stance on the College Football Playoff is pretty simple and striaghtforward: Nobody is in, but a number of teams are out. UConn and SMU and Iowa State are out, but nobody has guaranteed a spot at the playoff table at the end of the season. Nobody. Not Alabama, not Florida State, not Oklahoma, not Oregon, not UCLA etc. Fair enough?
With that said, I was waiting for the start of October to get started with my in-season playoff projection. I intend to update this on a weekly basis from now through the end of the season.
