Idle thoughts of a relatively libertarian Republican in Cambridge, MA, and whomever he invites. Mostly political.

Thursday, November 29, 2012 :::

I'm looking at this interesting project CNNSI did, with a mock committee of actual people who might be on a real committee selecting a college football playoff as will happen in a couple of years. I'm also considering the partial results in light of the playoff system for the Australian Football League, which is very nearly a system I suggested to my brother before I was aware it was used somewhere in the world, whereupon he informed me that it is used in the antipodes. This more or less suggests a bracket like
Notre Dame
OregonNotre DameOregon
GeorgiaTexas A&MNotre Dame
Texas A&M

with game results projected in the first three rounds in part to clarify the structure of the bracket.  The semifinals here feature Oregon against an SEC team and Notre Dame against an SEC team.
