The Way-Too-Early 2019 CFP Playoff Bracket Predictions

Note: This is how I envision the 2019 CFP Bracket filling out, based off observations of other teams during this short time we've been in the offseason. Take this with a grain of salt and bear with me on these. With that being said, here is my prediction:

1. Ohio State (13-0) "A New Day"

Ryan Day follows in his mentors footsteps by going undefeated in his first full season as head coach. The buckeyes earn the No.1 Seed in the playoff in large part due to the brilliant play of Heisman Trophy Runner-Up Justin Fields and a return of the Silver Bullets. The Buckeyes also sport quite possibly the best resume, with wins over ranked Penn State, TTUN, Northwestern, and Nebraska (x2) (With MSU possibly returning to form). The team is primed for a return to the throne.

2. Alabama (13-0) "Saban's Revenge"

Alabama Is Alabama. They go undefeated once again, and Tua wins his first Heisman Trophy. Nick Saban is much more active and Alabama looks angry and ready to avenge their loss in the CFP Championship the year prior.

3. Miami (12-1) "Miami is not ass, my dude"

No.1 Clemson largely looks impossible to stop with Trevor Lawrence at the helm. Because of this, the rest of the ACC is overlooked, including Miami, who quietly rack up win after win and sneak into the top 10 during the middle of the season. Tate Martell has a brilliant season, which culminates with a "Shock the World" Upset of Clemson in the ACC Title Game.

4. Texas (12-1) "Texas is back, folks"

Texas Tom finally pieces together the season all Texas fans have been waiting for. Sam Ehlinger shows his big time status as Texas defeats Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game, avenging the one loss they suffered in the Red River Rivalry. Ranked No. 4 in the final Selection Sunday, Texas looks to prove they belong.



No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 4 Texas 

Texas hangs around for a while, but stopping Fields proves to be extremely difficult as Ohio State turns a first half slugger into a second half slaughter. Texas Tom bitterly shakes Ryan Day's hand with Urban Meyer looking on from the sky box as Ohio State Blasts Texas 56-21

No. 2 Alabama vs No. 3 Miami

The mighty Crimson Tide race out to a 17-0 lead as Miami's lack of postseason experience shows. Just when this looks to be another blowout, Tate Martell does his best Johnny Manziel impression, putting in a performance for the ages. Trailing 24-21 late 4th quarter, Tate Martell engineers an outstanding drive, scoring the game winning touchdown run with less than 10 seconds left, ushering the decline of Alabama's Dynasty. Miami wins 28-24.



No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 3 Miami "QBGeddon III" 

Buckeye fans get the QB competition they've been waiting for, but this isn't just a normal game. The Petty Wars begin on twitter just hours after the championship game is set, with a bunch of subtweets from "Tweetin Tathan". Former teamates clap back. 

Ohio State looks to win their first championship since the 2014 season and tie the record for most CFP Titles with Alabama and Clemson at 2. Tate looks to get revenge for what he feels was Ohio State casting him out, and he brings a personal vendetta to look better than Fields in every way. Tate Manziel returns as what looked to be a defensive game turns into a shootout. Miami matches every Ohio State score with impressive speed. Tied 49-49 late in the 4th, Tate has the ball midfield. In his efforts to embarrass the Bucks he overthrows his receiver straight into the arms of his former roommate Jeffrey Okudah. Fields leads the Game Winning drive for the FG. Tate leaves the field without shaking anyone's hand as Ohio State wins it 9th National Championship in school history, defeating Miami 52-49. Ohio State are kings of the CFB world, but The U is back to national prominence.
