Due to Tuesday Night Games, I am getting the base information of the "rewind" out so my atrocious picks can be published for all to see on the world wide web. I altered the format a little bit, moving some of the conference information into comparison format.
I am also giving Clemson the kiss-of-death this week, moving them into the BCS Title Game with Alabama. There appears to be something special about this Tigers team, and I still believe Oklahoma State and Stanford have too tough a road to come through unblemished. The mediocre ACC, very manageable for Clemson.
Time permitting, further analysis will be added.
