The College Football Playoff Selection Show

After a few weeks of projections, here it is folks... Three River Sports' 2008 College Football Playoff Selection Show...

In case you missed it, I put together an article a few weeks back that detailed my personal plan for a college football playoff that seemingly every real college fan in existence wants to see. And I am sure this morning that Texas, Alabama, USC, Utah and even (gulp) Penn State fans wouldn't mind seeing this put into effect this year. And so now that the interminable college football regular season has wrapped up, I can make it official: Here are the seeds, matchups, dates and locations for the 2008 TRS College Football Playoff.

1 Oklahoma
2 Florida
4 Utah
5 Texas
6 Penn State
7 Cincinnati
8 Virginia Tech
9 Alabama
10 Texas Tech
11 Boise State
12 Ohio State

Penn State vs. Boise State at Houston December 20 6:00

Also in my system, there will still be bowl games for the rest of the teams. I don't have the energy to go doing all that just now, but will try to get the rest of my proposed post-season up sometime in the next few days.
