What would happen in a 64-team college football bracket?

Sure, the College Football Playoff is great, but let's get greedy. Using the 2018 preseason FPI, we get down to the Sweet 16 in a true version of gridiron madness.


Highly questionable line of questioning at the combine

Dan Le Batard, Papi and Izzy Gutierrez question if the NFL should punish the team that asked Derrius Guice if he liked men, if we should stop criticizing Josh Rosen and if Oklahoma deserves to be in the NCAA tournament.

LSU WR D.J. Chark posted an unofficial 4.34 40-yard dash at the NFL combine. Chark had a good week in Mobile at the Senior Bowl, too. With a long frame (6-foot-3, 199 pounds), Chark has the big play ability over the top and the footwork to set up defensive backs on double-moves.

Bucs linebacker Kwon Alexander tied with former LSU teammate Deion Jones for the most combined tackles on the NFC with six each. Jones had the most solo tackles. What's funny though, is Jones wouldn't take former LSU wide receiver Jarvis Landry to the ground. Alexander told me that they did have a gentlemen's agreement about not taking down the LSU guys.

LSU held an elite junior day on Saturday with some of their top 2019 targets on campus. That included plenty of the top Louisiana prospects with Kardell Thomas, Devonta Lee, Donte Starks, Noah Cain, Ishmael Sopsher and others.
