This year at STS we decided to unveil a few predictions for awards and conference champions in 2016. Since we are self-styled experts we thought it would be fun to see how all of this shakes out. Writers were asked to name each of P5 champions as well as the 4 playoff participants. Several Clemson-centric awards were also named

Outside of me it seems like everyone is pretty high on Clemson. The Tigers are predicted to make the playoffs by everyone else, even if FSU wins the ACC. The real interest comes in our breakout player section. There are plenty of candidates to choose from and hopefully all of these guys are worthy candidates at the end of the year.

Leave your predictions in the comments and we'll come back to them at the end of the season to see how terrible we are at making predictions.
