Since the College Football Playoff is starting this year, I thought this article was pretty helpful in understanding exactly what's going on. The recap at the end of the article:
• An elimination round now exists in college football.
• A selection committee will pick the top 25 teams in the country and seed the playoff.
• Six prestigious bowls will take place on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, broadcasted by ESPN.
• This year, the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl will host the semifinals on New Year's Day.
• This year's National Championship Game will take place in North Texas.
Urban is not my favorite coach. Jeremy Fowler reports Lindsay has added OSU (and uhh...Cal) to his visit list. On the plus side it sounds like the wait for his decision will end by end of April.
The former Alabama center, who started four games a year ago, says via text he's visiting Ohio State and Cal this week.
He has this set for Aug 28 - which is his first high school game of the season. He has UM in his top group. Would be a huge get on the DL, but the tea leaves say nd has a big edge. Need to get him on campus this summer and won't have a game day weekend to impress him.
"The university was regularly missing its 60-day deadline to investigate sexual misconduct," Proppe said Sunday night. "The main reason, at least initially when the moved to the new policy, was that the university didn't have the bandwidth to handle all these investigations.

Per the CSG's report, the task force claimed that athletic department officials did not believe the OIE or OSCR failed to notify the department "when a student athlete was accused of sexual misconduct." As a result of that finding, the task force concluded that "Brady Hoke knowingly issued false statements in December 2013 concerning the status of Gibbons."
The CSG's task force did not work in concert with officials from the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights, which will be on campus this week to launch its own investigation into the university's sexual misconduct policy.
He is a 2016 running back. Why is this important? He had his visit to Michigan postponed due to weather and I believe he is visiting in May. In addition, Tom VH posted this tweet:
