Playoff: If there was a 16-team playoff in college football, here’s how the brackets might look. The higher seed would be at home for all the 1st & 2nd round games. The first four games would be the left half of the bracket; the 2nd four the right half. 1-16: Oregon (Pac-10) vs. Troy (Sun-Belt). 8-9: Nebraska (B12) vs. Wisconsin (at-large). 4-13: Boise State (WAC) vs. Pittsburgh (Big East). 5-12: LSU (at-large) vs. Ohio State (at-large). 2-15: Auburn (SEC) vs. No. Illinois (MAC). 7-10: Michigan State (Big10) vs. Oklahoma State (at-large). 6-11: Stanford (at large) vs. Virginia Tech (ACC). 3-14: TCU (MWC) vs. Central Florida. Obviously they’re just projections – the Big Ten race isn’t settled, Alabama could sneak in, and so could Iowa, Arkansas, Arizona and Utah.
The Texas Rangers appear poised to hang on to Yu Darvish.
With Clayton Kershaw out, the Dodgers need to add another ace.
It was bound to happen.
