For those college football nutjobs like me who can’t stand the offseason, this might be for you. With all the talk of a college football playoff in the news lately I decided to get creative with the only simulation tools I have: a PS3 and NCAA 12. Using the final BCS regular season standings for seeding; I have created a 24 team playoff (24 teams because the BCS standings doesn’t extend to 32) that I will simulate to see who virtually would have been the national champion. First off, I am in not in favor at all of a 24 team playoff. This is not conducive in reality. My playoff starts on December 17 (two weeks after the conference title games) and extends until January 14th. The Top 8 seeds all have first round byes and the higher seeded team will host until the semi-finals. The semi-finals will be played at the Orange and Sugar Bowls. The championship will be played at the Rose Bowl. I have gone to great extents to make this simulation as legitimate as possible including roster changes due to injury or suspension and even accurate weather conditions at the site where the games would have been played. Check it out here: http://short-sideoption.blogspot.com/ , it’s a good source of entertainment in the off-season!
That's awesome man. +1

@Vol & Rod: Thank you for checking it out! How are things looking so far this spring in knoxville? College football is better when Tennessee is back at the top. How are Vols fans feeling about the new teams joining?
There is a lot of optimism right now I think. Good signing class, new coaches, hearing good things out of the winter workouts from the EE's as well as current players. Everyone seems very anxious for spring ball to start. As far as expansion, I personally don't care who comes in as long as the classic rivalries are not tampered with. Expansion is something that cannot be halted right now, might as well be reacted to instead of reacting to. I just do not want to see the 3rd Saturday go away, or UGA/AU, etc.
@Volfan: That's good to hear things are on the upswing there, I miss the big Tenn/Florida games. Yeah, that is one thing about expansion that drives me crazy; the loss of rivalries. It hurt to see the OU/Nebraska game completely go away (it basically went on life support at the formation of the Big 12, but atleast it was still breathing). The 3rd Sat. in Oct is another one that can't die. Rivalries of that magnetude should transcend the need to expand; but that's not reality sadly.
really great information , thanks
