A slapdash podcast predicts the 2016 college football season, 5 teams at a time

New, comments

Let's collect the records our weirdest college football podcast is throwing out for this year's Power 5 teams.

College football podcast Shutdown Fullcast is trying something unusual: talking about college football. To be specific, we're doing weekly previews of random batches of five power-conference teams at a time for the 2016 season, including a predicted win-loss record for each.

Several batches in, here's how things are developing. I'll update this after we sort of cover each cluster of five teams, unless I forget. Georgia Tech is running wild based on Paul Johnson randomness, and everything else kind of makes sense?

If we fail to agree on a record or forget to declare one, I'll estimate a number that reflects the tenor of our sentiment, maybe clearing it with Ryan and Spencer or maybe not.

Conference standings should not actually use overall records, but we're doing our best to deliver even those. New additions italicized:
