A little football discussion while we on all star break. 

My team that has outside chance to make the 4 team tourney is IOWA. Returning 8 States on offense including QB. They don't play michigan , Ohio State,  or michigan state in reg. Season. Wisconsin and Nebraska both go to Iowa. 

My top 10 team that could fall is Alabama.  Losing starting QB. Think this could be the year of a 2 loss Bama team that will fall outside the top 10.

BYU could also run the board and make the playoff.  South Carolina will finish 9-3, possibly even 8-4, and well out of the top 10.

Interesting - Iowa and my beloved Huskers in the same division.  I watched Iowa in person wax Nebraska in Lincoln last year and it was no fluke, and not playing Michigan St is HUGE for them.  Northwestern is a scary team this season in the Big 10 and Huskers better than advertised, I went to their spring game and while the defense is in question they are going to better than last years D.  Husker's RB best in the nation this season.  It will not be easy, but Iowa, if their QB can stay healthy (depth and experience an issue there) and perform well is a good team.  Iowa City very tough place to go in and win a game....plus Well coached team....

Teams i think will make a move near the top 5..Baylor and AZ St...Both Offenses will put up tons of points...If a team can't keep up or stop them..they will just outscore anyone they play..Teams i think will fall this year..Ohio State and Oregon..Ohio State has a bunch of holes to fill..IDK if Braxton Miller can repeat what the team did last year..The defense has a few big holes to fill and looking at playing young players with talent..that's a concern..The o-line is going to be almost new and with Miller being a running QB..they may become very one dimensional..As far as Oregon is i think they will be OK..but the PAC12 is so much stronger..even the teams last year that didn't fair to well because of the youth..will be much better and give the Ducks a better game..Could be a bunch of look ahead games for the Ducks as they overlook teams like CAL,Wash St, Arz..and so on...My gut says they wont cover a ton of games..and will be over valued line wise..They will prob win the first game by 50 or 60..which will help as the weeks of stiffer comp are ahead..The Oregon defense has holes to fill and the loss of D-coord will be an issue to the guys who are comfortable with the old situation...I also like BYU to make a push near the top 10 if they get on a roll.

Good stuff.  I was thinking the same on Ohio State.  

They were overrated last year.  Imo
