Latest look at playoff committee
By Vince Verhei
The selection committee of the college football playoff is slowly taking shape, and Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports has the latest info.
One model, consisting of one representative from each of the ten FBS conferences, has apparently been rejected.
“We don't want people on the committee representing a particular constituency,” Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said during his conference's spring meetings here. “Then people are in there with a narrow interest. We want people in there who can take a broad view and do what's right.”
“We've gone through a couple of exercises for just hypothetical fun,”w said Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson. “Let's say we listed 10 names, 15 names, 20 names for fun. It's hard to come up with lists … You can probably come up with 20-25 people who are on everybody's list. Would they serve? Will they serve? Who knows?”
