With a couple of weeks left in the college football offseason, CBS Sports decided to shake the table a little bit.

On Monday, CBS' Barrett Sallee and Shehan Jeyarajah released a map featuring their pick for the best Division I football program in each state. 

"These picks are based on a wide variety of factors, including recent success, rivalry results and hope for the future," they wrote. 

Some of these are easy selections, while others are a lot harder to make. Poor Alaska doesn't even have any Division I program to choose from.

Ultimately, Sallee and Jeyarajah's exercise is meaningless, but it has still drawn plenty of feedback, both positive and negative.

In a few weeks, we will have actual game results to discuss and in-season rankings to debate. 

For now, things like this map will have to do. What do you think of the picks that CBS Sports made?
