Wisconsin’s AD has a suggestion that should dismay every Georgia fan.
Wisconsin Athletics Director Barry Alvarez threw out Herbstreit’s name as a committee member.
“If I wasn’t doing what I was doing, I’d love to be chairman of that group,” Herbstreit said. “If there’s a way to do it and it’s not a conflict of interest, I would love to do it because I love the sport. I don’t claim to necessarily have all the answers or that I’m right. But at least I watch and I’m educated. I’m not just watching a highlight. When you’re engaged, it makes it very easy to have an educated opinion.”
And when you’re a former Ohio State quarterback, it makes it very easy to have a bias or two.
No wonder ol’ Herbie thinks it would be a good idea to keep the committee’s votes private.
And while we’re on the subject of keeping things private, how about Bill Hancock’s Joe Biden moment?
“The concept has been that each conference can decide what to do with its revenue,” Hancock said. “It’s sort of like states rights. The state of Alabama decides how it wants to manage itself.”
Ah, yes, states rights and Alabama managing itself. What could go wrong with that choice of words?
