“People need to play good games and not worry that one loss to a formidable opponent ends that team’s chances of getting into the Playoff — or two losses.” said Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione…
Sure thing, Joe. I’m sure all those ADs who need the revenue from those home cupcake games are gonna jump all over your suggestion there and start loading up on non-conference home-and-homes (like Georgia is, admittedly). Also, pay no attention to the fact that no two-loss team has made the CFP so far (although, admittedly again, that becomes more likely filling a 12-team field).
I will believe in this brave new world when Bill Hancock insists the committee won’t take it into account. Just kidding… I think.
By the way, the article mentions that there is talk to expand the selection committee “to gain additional perspectives”. I mean, why not? It’s nice work, if you can get it. Although they’re gonna need a bigger hat rack.
