Here’s the thing to remember about winning the College Football Playoff national championship – it’s really, really, really impossible.

First, you have to win your Power Five conference – or be amazing and come really close. Second, you have to win that league and go unbeaten or lose just one game. And then, if you pass those two tests, you still have to beat Alabama.

So while it might seem like fun to pick a team to win the national championship because you have a feeling, a hunch, or just want to, you’re almost certainly going to be wrong.

Just … Don’t

Oh, go ahead and throw down a few bucks if you love a certain team and like to dream the impossible dream. Or you could take your money and go by a huge thing of nachos. It’ll all end up in the same place.

None of these teams are going to win the College Football Playoff national championship, but … you could make a reasonable case that one of them might get close if the planets are perfectly aligned. Yes, 2015 Iowa didn’t get into the CFP, but they came within a late stop of getting there.

These teams have the potential to at least get into a conference title game, and then have something – like a veteran head coach, or a power program pedigree – that could be enough to make it fun.
