Let’s see… the college football playoff has room for four teams… and there are five power conferences. So you already have a game of musical chairs that is going to have somebody frustrated. The Big 12 (which only has 10 teams) has applied for a waiver to allow a championship game – which will be interesting given that the league already promotes itself as providing “One True Champion” because of its round-robin schedule. Of course, that ran into real trouble last year when the league decided to crown co-champions. How did they do that? Because Baylor and TCU had identical conference records. TCU had lost to Baylor, though, which in a round-robin league should have given Baylor the outright championship. But the league wanted to promote TCU and Baylor for spots in the playoff, and so they crowned TCU as league co-champions even though Baylor had yet to start its game against Kansas State. Why? Well, whichever team would have won in Waco would have been the league’s other “co-champion” according to this unwieldy process the league set in motion last year. Now that the College Football betting calendar has turned to the summer of 2015, all eyes are on the power conferences again, figuring out which is going to provide the strongest schedules of opponents for its members – and which should get the most attention as playoff fever builds.
