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!
Pretty cool, but Wisconsin would have to play Bama two or three weeks in a row to score 28 points.

@ Jeff: You may be right, that Bama defense was one of the best I've seen in years. With a blocked punt for a TD though, Wisconsin's offense might have been able to squeeze out 21 points. Did you see the yardarge the Wisconsin offense was held to? Even in simultion, that Bama defense is scary. Thank you for checking it out!
BTW, What is most Kentucky fans take on the expansion teams? Good, bad, indifferent? I've read where scheduling is going to be a nightmare in respect to keeping all the historic rivalries in tact
Indifferent....I like expansion as a whole.
I like expansion, as long as it doesn't grow beyond 16 teams. I'd like to see four 16-team conferences feeding into a national playoff bracket eventually. Top four from each super conference make it and get seeded. Pipe dream? Maybe. But it would be fun.
@Jeff: That would be amazing! And how much more exciting would that make College Football?? Now if we could just get the ACC/Big Ten to absorb the rest of the Big East.....and the Pac 12/SEC to absorb the rest of the Big 12.....I like the idea though!
I'm as anti-expansion as it gets. It is not good for UK football in any way. College Football/SEC is great as it is. No need to mess with it, IMO.
@PHCD, Admittedly I'm not a fan of an SEC team.....but I was thinking along your lines. You have won the last 5 (or is it 6 now?) National Championships and none have even really been that close. Why mess with a good thing? But then again; you do have a foot in the Texas market though now.....thanks for your input!
