You want a playoff? You really want a playoff? Is that what you need to satisfy your need for closure on who the best team is? Fine, then forget about the regular season, and let's just have one big playoff.

Once again here's the CFN Ultimate National Title, taking all the teams and giving them a shot at the crown. This is a war of endurance as much as talent. Unlike past years when we did it at the end of the season, we're doing it at the beginning.

With 119 teams, there has to be three brackets of 30 teams and one of 29. The "strongest" of the No. 3 seeds, in this case, UCLA, doesn't have to play a first round game. The higher seed gets the home game up until the semifinals. The seedings are based on our CFN Preseason Rankings in an attempt to create the fairest, most entertaining tournament possible. Yes, the geographical directions are names only. Scroll down for all the seedings.
