Imaginary Non-BCS playoff

Wins are based loosely on the assumption the the points for/points against season average would continue into a playoff system based of 8 teams and how they score during the 2012 season. My basis for win/loss is 8 team bracket system, centered around the differential of how many points a team scored or gave up and the difference picks the winner.

"Inspired" by Kevan Lee's article

http://www.obnug.com/2012/12/4/3726176/how-would-boise-state-fare-against-the-best-non-bcs-teams-in-the

if a team, BSU, could win in the non BCS playoff.

Rest assured, it's unscientific, probably illogical and more than likely filled with errors and most definitely, makes little to no sense, but there is not other playoff to make any dispute with me, so I am sticking with it.

Couldn't be any worse than how the BCS does their selections.

8 teams, teams are picked by the above article and rankings based on CBS sports, well, (crappy) ranking.

Couldn't find anything better.

Personally, I would have thrown out either SDSU or FSU (3 teams from the same conerence is too many) and most likely included LA Tech and possibly dumped someone else. Or not.

But since there are no rules, I didn't follow any.
