Count Texas AD DeLoss Dodds as another person who doesn’t think a four-team playoff is big enough. Why? Well…
… He argued that an eight-team playoff would lessen the controversy over teams not included in a four-team field.
“I think there’ll be a lot of conversation about the fifth team and who didn’t get in and an 11-1 team that didn’t get in because somebody’s 12-0 that maybe wasn’t quite as good as 11-1,” he said. “If you take eight, you’re not going to have that. The ninth team is going to have a concern, but it’s not like the fifth team.”
I wonder if Mack Brown will agree with that the first time Texas is sitting at Number 9.
There is no way the four-team format is going to make it through the entire term of the new contract.
