No, silly, not those two words. These two:
The College Football Playoff management committee, which is comprised of the 10 FBS commissioners and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick, are in unanimous agreement that the CFP should not expand beyond four teams right now. [Emphasis added.]
The big boys are tossing a $15 million bone to the mid-majors and those conference commissioners know that’s the best they’ve done and the best they’ll do — for now. For all the talk about UCF’s national championship parade and the “Some critics of the system have said that what’s missing in college football is the Cinderella stories that are seen more frequently in the college basketball tournament…” garbage, the money is what this has been and will always be about.
And you know what? These guys are patient. They know sooner or later that what ESPN is raining down on Delany and Sankey won’t be enough anymore and when that day comes, there will be more to pass through. So what do they have to lose by waiting? It’s not like they’ve got better options, anyway.
