College football season starts Saturday, which means analysts around the country are making their picks for this year's College Football Playoff. One has a very bold foursome that he sees competing for it all at the end of the season.

The team over at CBS Sports Network ran a segment that included playoff picks from Aaron Murray, Houston Nutt and Brian Jones. Jones had by far the most controversial selections.

There are two extremely bold decisions made by Jones. One, he doesn't have Alabama in his foursome. Two, he has Michigan State as the 3-seed.

Jones has Georgia, Clemson, Michigan State and Oregon.

Oregon is a somewhat controversial pick as well, but the Ducks might be the class of the Pac-12. If they can run the table (or maybe lose one game) they should be in the mix.

Murray took Alabama, Clemson, Michigan and Georgia. Nutt has Clemson, Alabama, Georgia and Oregon.

None picked either Ohio State or Oklahoma - two other teams that many believe will have the talent to qualify for the event.

College football fans - has Jones lost his mind? Or is Michigan State a real threat to win the Big Ten and compete for a national title?
