Hey, remember that innocent question I asked yesterday?
On a more serious note, let’s say these other conferences really intend to sulk badly enough to risk costing themselves prestige and money. Is there any possibility those feelings would carry over to the selection committee’s deliberations?
The man in charge of Kansas State’s athletic department is about to serve on one of the most prominent working groups in college football.
Gene Taylor has been chosen to join the College Football Playoff selection committee ahead of the upcoming season, according to a pair of K-State sources.
… Taylor will replace Texas athletics director Chris Del Conte on the selection committee. Del Conte was announced as one of the playoff committee’s five newest members in January, but he is stepping down from his role with the playoff because of the conflicting interests that now exist with Texas departing the Big 12 for the SEC along with Oklahoma, according to sources.
The Big 12 will turn to Taylor as its representative on the committee.
I hope these people aren’t going to make me long for the days of the Coaches Poll being part of the BCS.
