The North Coast Plan: Mid-Season Edition

A 12-Team College Football Playoff Proposal

The North Coast Plan is a proposal where I outlined a 12-team college football playoff. I may be updating the plan as the season goes on.

Dropped out: Kansas State, Northwestern, Louisiana-Monroe, LSU.
New this week: West Virginia, Michigan State, Western Kentucky, Florida.

Here's how things stand under the North Coast Plan at the mid-season mark using the Projected BCS Standings (Dated: 10.07.12).

*Since there are currently 11 FBS conferences and not the 10 there will be when the playoffs take effect, only 10 projected conference leaders were used in the simulation. If the projected WAC Champ was rated higher than the projected Champ of the conference that that team will be moving to, they were included in the simulation (i.e. Louisiana Tech rated higher than current C-USA leader).
