“I don’t know the Cowboys’ schedule, but you never know when they want to do a walkthrough, or something else is going on.”

LMAO time:  The CFP is looking at a potential conflict between the Dallas Cowboys playoff schedule and preparation time for its national championship game.

At its most basic level, the Cowboys’ playoff game could alter the amount of time each of the final two teams have to prepare for a game inside AT&T Stadium; of the four Playoff teams, Florida State is the only one to have played a game at the stadium during the past two seasons.

“You’ve got two teams coming in who need to practice,” said Martin Jarmond, Ohio State’s Associate Athletics Director for Development. “One of our questions was, what does that look like if the Cowboys keep winning, which they have — when will we be able to get into the stadium?

But, hey, Bill Hancock says they’ve been “… planning this with the Cowboys and the stadium staff for several months”, so I’m sure this will all work out fine.  Because somehow Hancock knew long ago how successful the Cowboys’ season would turn out to be.  Hope he made a few bucks in Vegas while he was at it.

    I don’t this as much of an issue to me. Bama and Oregon will be a great matchup.

    Doesn’t matter which teams make it, to me this is a non-issue. Other than a walk-through for the teams, and time for the QB to locate the play clock, how much can it really impact the game or favor either team? I suspect all of them have experience with the type of turf at Jerry World and having the correct shoe would be the biggest adjustment required. Punt receivers will time to take kicks before the game. Agree with PTC, nothing to see here so just move along. (Also hope that is the matchup we get for the game.)
