Where’s your conspiracy theory now?

The College Football Playoff has its selection committee chairman:  Arkansas AD Jeff Long.

For those of you who were fretting about the SEC getting screwed, I think you can relax now.

Then again, this is the guy who thought hiring John L. Smith was a swell idea.

    It’s going to be hilarious watching the gnashing of teeth coming out of the Midwest and West coast after this announcement.

    How can you pretend that I guy who runs an athletic program with a football team that could potentially be under considerations is objective?

    Spurrier thinks it’s a conspiracy against him because Jeff’s publicists are already working on the first draft of a series of tweets to Steve on South Carolina being left behind:

    Jeff: “I do feel badly for South Carolina. That’s no fun winning out of division games by beating someone’s butt at home, homecoming and all that. And even though you do play a little golf, your game is really not that good.”

    At least Long probably won’t have to recuse himself anytime in the near future or if Bama self-emolates, or Saban goes somewhere else.

    What if Long is not the Arkansas AD for Long?

    Again I ask…what is wrong with using the current BCS poll to get the top 4? If it is/was good enough to pick 2, surely it is good enough for 4.

    NEWSFLASH** NFL expanding playoffs by two teams next season.

    I’m taking the “under” on when CFB decides to expand from 4.

    Any use of current AD’s, coaches or Commissioners is just wrong. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, design a computer program to take into account what the “Committee” feels are the most relevant factors and let a cold blooded machine decide based on those criteria the top four. This Committee has all the feel of a damned smoke filled room of politicians lobbying for their boy.


  9. Long is a yankee from Ohio, the AD at Clampersun is from PA. They are the token Southerners who will sell us out. The only true Southerner on the committee is Archie Manning.

      Not only that, Arkansas is not even in the South, the other one is an ex-Techster but Archie grew up by the Parchman Farm and later served time with the Saints south of Angola

    Where is Condi Rice? Feminist will not be happy. Does not matter if she put her fingers or hands in the dirt. Dawgs conspiracy. They do not win when Murray has turnovers and the O line does not perform. Think not. Look it up. Has pretty much been the case for awhile, especially this year and last. Both have to have a solid game against Vandy. Time to recruit another solid TB to go with Green and Douglas, the other 2 starters are following the trend of last highly touted one.

    Hey, how about putting Hal Mumme on the committee? A voice of objectivity…

    It’s a damn yankee trick.
