Adjusted Third Down Rates will tell you that Taylor Martinez and company need to stay on schedule, while Mike Leach's Air Raid makes up for a lack of overall talent with solid adjusted conversion rates.

Today at SB Nation, I took a look at how a four-team playoff, and the selection committee allegedly accompanying it, would have impacted the last 14 years of college football. The short version: we're still annoyed, and Boise State is still screwed. At least, the Boise State of the WAC and Mountain West.

We have been having some fun this week at SB Nation, walking through the ins and outs of the promotion-and-relegation system of world soccer and why it would or wouldn't work for college football. My contribution: a rough, seven-year, four-tiered simulation that encompasses the FBS ranks and a good portion of FCS. The result: Akron falls really far, Howard Schnellenberger adds "SEC coach" to his resume, and the Pac-12 is suddenly the deepest conference in the country.
Anyway, it's a fun way to kill some time, even though the top conferences would obviously never agree to such a thing.
