A reminder that the SEC doesn’t really care if the CFP expands:
“If [the 12-team model] is rejected, we’ll have to think about process and if there’s a need for a new format,” Sankey says. “But keep in mind, we can keep the four best teams. As I’ve said repeatedly, consistently, vocally, four has worked just as it was intended, it is working and it can continue to work.”
Now, maybe he’s drawing on his inner Jim Delany and seeing how far he can push a bluff. If that’s the case, it looks like he’s about to be tested, according to Dennis Dodd.
College Football Playoff expansion may not only be delayed as expected, but the CFP Board of Managers — those necessary to vote on adopting a 12-team playoff — may be asked to not even fly to Chicago for the previously scheduled meeting on Sept. 28, sources tell CBS Sports.
The differences are so vast among stakeholders at this point that the possibility of getting a unanimous vote from the board — consisting of university presidents and chancellors — next Tuesday seems like a longshot, sources tell CBS Sports. It’s gotten to the point where even holding the meeting at all may prove a worthless endeavor.
Be still, my heart. I can’t believe some of these idiots are willing to tank an arrangement that clearly benefits the Pac-12, Notre Dame and the G5, but I certainly won’t stand in anybody’s way if they want to do so.
Hell, I may have to take back every bad thing I’ve ever said about Greg Sankey if the other girls stay mad enough at him to leave the playoffs at four teams.
