Your last point was the most important. I was totally against the move but the area around Turner Field was barren. That was primarily the city's fault and the Braves wanted it addressed. The "improvements" line is BS. The Braves wanted a public partner to foot the bill for development (and they wanted ownership of the parking lots) and Cobb County gave it to them. Atlanta was more concerned with keeping the Falcons in town.

They've run BCS simulations for the last two seasons. Each year, the Playoff Committee picked the same top 4 that the BCS would have picked. They actually picked the same top 8 teams each season. The only difference was the seeding. This isn't to say that it will always be the same but I doubt the results would vary too much.

Plus, a big brand like tOSU will never get screwed. Especially if that blue blood handles it's business.

It feels like the team has relocated. It'll be easier to fly to Columbus from Hartsfield than attend a Friday evening game at the new park.

I was going to mention that those B1G bottom feeders would have down better against the Rutgers' schedule. Then I realized they still would have lost the same number of games but just by smaller margins.

This may sound weird but I think schools like UCLA, Arkansas and Iowa are underrated jobs. Those places seem to happily spend big money for 8 and 9 win seasons.

Not to defend Iowa, but they have regularly scheduled other Power 5 opponents during Kirk Ferentz's tenure. Recently, they've played home and home's with Pitt and both Arizona schools. It's not an every year occurrence but it's a lot more than Baylor can say. Iowa is an average / occassionally relevant program that seems pretty happy with reaching a New Years Day bowl once every four or five years.

I'm not sure in anyone tried the same simulation last year but the final BCS and CFP polls in 2014 were fairly comparable. 8 of the top 12 schools finished in the same slot and the other 4 finished within one slot of each other in both polls. Not saying that this would match all the time, but I really don't believe the results would ever be wildly different.

Looks like I disagree with most people. At some point a conference will definitely get two teams into the playoff. There were at least 3 seasons during the BCS era that a conference had two teams in the top four and the other Power 5 champs weren't real contenders. While I admit that the CFP and BCS eras are starting to differentiate themselves (stronger non-conference scheduling, larger conferences) college football is still wacky enough to produce years like 2005, 2006, 2008, & 2011.

That said, I do not believe that any conference will get two teams in this year. Ohio State, Stanford and Alabama are clearly the best teams in their conferences. The last spot will be betweeen the ACC Atlantic Champ (because Louisville, Clemson and Florida State are all in the same division) and Houston. Except Houston, all of these teams can afford a loss if they win their conference.
