Only one of the P5 conferences isn’t represented in this year’s CFP field. Even Larry Scott has to admit that the Pac-12 failed the “best” test and the “deserving” test this season.
“This year, to be the one league of the five that doesn’t have a team in it, that’s harmful to our positioning, our brand and everything we’ve got,” he said.
Playoff expansion — do it for the branding! Now there’s a rallying cry we can all get behind. Maybe that’ll help Larry the next time he tries to sell off a piece of the conference to some hedge fund bros.
I am so looking forward to a bigger playoff.
