Of employed Americans who plan to watch Sunday's Super Bowl game, more than one in five likely will skip work on Monday, resulting in $2.64 billion in productivity losses nationwide. Meanwhile, U.S. employers stand to lose another $1.72 billion if viewers report to work one hour late or fritter away an hour discussing the head-to-head between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams. That's according to estimates by Chicago-based Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc. global outplacement and executive coaching firm, and based on wage and employment-to-population data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and a poll by the Workforce Institute at Kronos that found 13.9 million people ditched work after last year's Super Bowl.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Scenario Season.The tangled web of what ifs reached the point where the ESPN crew announcing the standings debated Alabama's candidacy in the case of an SEC title game loss. (The Crimson Tide remains top-ranked if there were any questions).This is all interesting for a few reasons and the CFP's brief history presents a roadmap. The second round of standings had at least one team who didn't make the final bracket each of first four years under this format. So, who gets bumped if that trend holds?It's possible for this four to hold firm because there are no potential meetings involving Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame or Michigan.
