I'm still struggling to get over the last game of the baseball season, but my buddy was discussing with me a system he had come up with for a college football playoff, which would obviously happen if a true armageddon of realignment actually does happen in college football.
It's kinda long, but here it is anyway. I like the fact he gave births to some of the smaller conferences and kinda left some wild cards out there too. Just a disclaimer, he has no allegiance to any college football team. He went to U of H and likes the Big XII and Texas teams. Let me know what y'all think. Just something to think about and debate....
