The 11-person CFP Management Committee (10 conference commissioners plus Notre Dame) and its board of managers (university presidents) will meet Monday in Santa Clara, California, in a regularly-scheduled meeting ahead of the CFP National Championship.
I mean, what could go wrong?
“Right now, it’s [just] talks,” said a source intimately involved in the process. “I don’t think anything is imminent, but I’m guessing we’re going to start digging into it a little bit. If people are expecting us to walking about the door saying, ‘Here we go,’ it’s not going to be that way.”
Several sources mentioned the word “logistics.”
Fuck. We’re doomed.
These guys wouldn’t know from logistics if logistics walked up and bit ’em in the ass. They’re fretting over what another round of playoff expansion might do to what’s left of the top tier bowls. Never mind that this year’s Sugar Bowl prices fell off a cliff, check out what’s happened to CFP ticket prices.
Maybe sticking your premier event in a stadium just south of that rabid enclave of college football known as San Francisco wasn’t such a hot idea, hunh. But I’m sure it’s paying them well.
I respect the opinions of those who think an eight-game playoff would be good for the sport, but, damn, if you’re paying attention to the idiots calling the shots and quite frankly not feeling a little nervous about that, I think you’re going to wind up being just as dismayed as I am, ultimately.
