March Madness 2012: How Would This Bracket Play out in College Football?

Although spring football has finally arrived to provide more news and a good look forward to the 2012 college football season, today is a college sports holiday that has nothing to do with football: Selection Sunday.

But why should the basketball fans have all the fun at the water cooler? College football fans always want a playoff, and the beginnings of such a system sound like they are coming with a four-team playoff in 2012.

However, why wait until December to have a college football playoff? We have these brackets already filled out for us by a selection committee, so let's see what would happen if the football teams were playing March Madness rather than the basketball teams.

Plus, this is just as good a way to lose money in your office pool as spending all work week analyzing the matchups, only to get defeated by "pick by color" Sally or "pick the cutest animal" Bob.  Fire away, football teams: it's time to fill out the brackets.

Note that I used the 2012 football teams in this analysis rather than the 2011 versions.  Alabama fans don't need crowned again, at least not automatically.
