On The Ball, with Mark Emmert

The guy who allegedly runs the organization that runs a college football playoff had this to say about it yesterday:

“An individual contest — a football game, a basketball game — that’s quite different,” he said. “In the case of a bowl game or the CFP, you’re talking about a championship game. Can you create a bubble with enough lead time to have two teams play each other safely? The answer to that may be yes. The FCS is a round-robin championship with 20 teams participating and a full-on championship event. That’s a very different and much more challenging environment than adding one or two more games to a season with a lot of space in between.”  [Emphasis added.]

For the last seven seasons, the FCS tournament has been a 24-team, single-elimination event.  Other than that, the man is spot on.

It’s a good thing knowing what he’s in charge of isn’t a main requirement of the job.
