Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated enlisted the help of Bill Connelly, Brian Fremeau, and a few other college football and basketball stat gurus to help frame the conversation about the future college football playoff selection process. Selecting and seeding a four-team playoff requires an entirely different process than the one employed in the NCAA selection of the annual 68-team basketball tournament field. The panel of stat experts share their perspectives on the data that needs to be part of that process.

Is the NFL sleeping on Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib or is he Russ Lande's ranking of him as his top player on his draft board crazy talk? Not as crazy as you might think.

In light of the Alex Smith deal, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Kansas City Chiefs has an eye on E.J. Manuel as a project to develop behind Alex Smith ala Colin Kaepernick.

He’s not big. He’s not fast. Yet, he’s the most sophisticated runner between the tackles I have seen this year.

Ware isn’t a breakaway threat; he’s a hot-running, helmet-crunching, break-your-back, ball-carrying warrior. He’s rugged, smart, and technically sound in most aspects of the game. If Seattle didn’t have a Robert Turbin, Ware is the back I’d want backing up Marshawn Lynch. If Mike Shanahan wants a lean, mean, running back depth chart, he can dispense with most of the backs behind Alfred Morris and opt for Ware.
