The two-lane blacktop that serves as the only ingress to the College Football Playoffs — that suburban, gated community of college football’s top 1% — is suddenly in a bit of a traffic jam. Typically at this time of year, we wring our hands over the number of unbeaten teams still in contention. And yet, even though Baylor, West Virginia, Nebraska, and Boise State all had their first sad bus ride of the season… things seem even more confused than before.
Yes, we have THE BIG FOUR unbeatens (Bama, Michigan, Clemson, Washington). And if they win out, then this will be the easiest job the CFP Committee has had yet. But…should one or more falter, we then start the process of determining the best one (or two) loss team(s) ready to step in.
We don’t discuss any of that crap in today’s episode, but we will get into civil engineering and traffic faux pas, so buckle up, listen, comment, and share!
