Week 5 Standings: Alternate Reality of NCAA College Football

I introduce the alternate reality of divisional College Football, which decides a champion in a playoff, with no preferences given. Seeding and ranking is based solely on merits, with Conference Wins as first priority, overall wins second priority, and least amount of losses last.

The Conferences needed realignment in order to get 120 teams evenly distributed, and I’m willing to bet, were this to happen in real life, there would be some significant realignments.

I will track the league’s progress throughout the season. It should be interesting to see how such an idea matches up against what the BCS brings us.

Enjoy!
