How did Lamichael James and Oregon fare against their first-round tournament matchup? Details inside.

Some readers may remember the article from last week regarding a plan I outlined for a college football tournament. For those who didn't read it, it is available here.

Now that Whatifsports.com has updated for 2010 teams, I can simulate the matchups. For any questions regarding seeding, see the article linked to. And remember, each game was simulated only once (because each game is only played once, so this allowed for possibility of upsets along the way that wouldn't happen the majority of the time). So don't say "There is no way Team X would beat Team Y" because they did in one simulation.

I am not implying they are the better team. They actually won the single simulation I ran. Here is a review of who faced who in the first round.

 

#16 Central Florida at #1 Auburn

#9 Ohio State at #8 Connecticut

#13 LSU at #4 Stanford

#12 Boise State at #5 Wisconsin

#11 Michigan State at #6 Oklahoma

#14 Missouri at #3 TCU

#10 Arkansas at #7 Virginia Tech

#15 Oklahoma State at #2 Oregon
