Now that the College Football Playoff Committee has released its first poll we can move on to the bigger story, who’s going to head perennial powers—Michigan and Florida?
Heading into Week 6, we’re starting to get a feel for the identity of the top teams. It’s still too early to pick clear favorites for the first College Football Playoff, but we’re starting to get an idea about who those top 4 teams may be. It’s never mattered less who is sitting at number 1, but it appears that the AP Poll has picked its favorite.
There is a simple solution for college football’s first Division I playoff. If they really want to bring the best four teams to the table to duke it out for the closest thing we’ve ever had to something that isn’t a mythical national championship, then why not invite the top four teams from the SEC West Division? Of course, they won’t do that because the folks at Oklahoma, Oregon and Florida State would suddenly go into a state of apoplexy, but you can make a strong case that the Southeastern Conference deserves two seats at the Final Four table and both of those teams should be from the SEC West.

But there were also those who decried Livingston’s shenanigans as being unsafe and not belonging on the job site.
