It has bowls and sites lined up to host games (even the Yankees want in). It even has a 12-year television deal in place (yeah, it's with us).
But what it still doesn't have is a selection committee. Or even a template for a selection committee, at least not one that we know of. At last month's College Football Playoff meetings, whenever the attending commissioners were asked about the makeup of the room that will determine which four teams will have a shot at the title, they jointly pointed toward executive director Bill Hancock. They'd just handed him a list of 100-plus prospective committee members and told him to start making calls to gauge interest.
