Over/Under
A national sports talk show host suggested we do away with the NCAA committee for the football playoffs and let Las Vegas tell us the best for teams. I agree that no one knows football more than Vegas, but they also get it wrong a lot.

Each summer Vegas releases the over/under for each college team for their regular season wins total. This tends to upset fans of every school because they can't believe Vegas thinks they will only win that few games. Most fans tend to value their program more than the nation does.

This past year Vegas had Clemson's regular season over/under at 8.5 wins, so the Tigers went over with nine wins. Our rival was projected at 9.5, so their six wins was minus 3.5 which was the lowest in country.

Below is a look at how each team in the five power conferences did compared to their pre-season projections:
