Bleacher Report's Post National Signing Day College Football Playoff Predictions
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

National signing day didn't drastically alter the landscape of college football in 2014, but it did mark an important checkpoint between the upcoming season and last, making its wake as good a time as any to indulge in some way-too-early predictions on the inaugural College Football Playoff.

But here's the thing about way-too-early predictions: They're made way too early. Important dominoes like the transfers of Max Wittek and Cody Riggs, who will both be eligible immediately next season, could still play a major part in determining which teams are capable of contending for a conference title and spot in the national semifinals.

Also, keep in mind how often a college football season goes off the rails. Last year, for example, the College Football Playoff likely would have included Florida State and Alabama, but it also would have included Auburn and Michigan State.

The Tigers and Spartans went a combined 10-15 in 2012.

A playoff with no upsets would be, in and of itself, a mild upset, and these predictions did their best to reflect that entropy.

Even if the winner feels like chalk.
