LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- If you thought 2014 was a wide-open season in college football, wait until you look ahead to the second edition of the College Football Playoff.

I’ve asked a number of coaches in attendance at the AFCA Convention to handicap the 2015 favorites. The responses, especially when judging beyond the top two teams, have been all over the place.

As for those top two picks? Most everyone likes national champion Ohio State to again be among the four playoff teams.
