The College Football Playoff is Real!!!

I have been waiting a long time for this.  Every year since 2006, I have drafted my own fictional College Football Playoff system that I believed should have determined the true National Champions.  At the end of this season, that dream becomes reality.  Well, almost.  The NCAA playoff will only feature the 4 teams at the top of a poll determined by a committee.  So close.  They have have control of 6 bowl games, that sounds pretty easy to get a 12 team playoff.  But hey, one step at a time.  The popularity of the College Football Playoff will generate enormous profits which will quickly lead to its expansion to include 8 and then hopefully 16 teams.  It never hurts to keep dreaming.

If you don't understand how the new system works, Slate put together this nice summary for you:
