Same as it ever was.

There is a lot to smile about when you start near the top of the polls.

A whole lot of familiar faces on here, and, to be honest, don't expect that to change as the college landscape is increasingly dominated by not only the Power 5 conferences, but by the oligarchs within them.

The midmajors really should have stuck with the BCS; I don't see any possible way a team like Boise State or a Cincinnati could ever break through under the playoff.

Anyway, ta-dah:
