College Football Research

It's been an absolutely crazy summer for a lot of reasons, and some of them were not good. So I find myself behind the 8-ball again now that the season has come around. And, as expected, it's hard to get excited for college football.

Any given weekend is going to have very little impact on the eventual playoff matchups. And nobody really gives a crap about the conference races now that there is a playoff. Once they expand it to 8 teams, then 16, then 32, there will be even less reason to care. And when more and more players make it to the NFL so broken down that they can't play a down in the pros, it's going to make people wonder why we even allow players to play in college. It's like watching a car get hit by a train: there's nothing you can do about it but wish the car hadn't drive onto the tracks in the first place.

Anyway, here's the picks.

Clemson

They're going to win the national championship.

Alabama

They're going to lose to Clemson in the national championship game.

128 Other Teams

Nobody cares.
