Quote

The CFP management committee, which comprises the 10 FBS commissioners plus Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick, discussed "some 63 possibilities for change," according to a news release from the CFP. Those included models of six, eight, 10, 12 and 16 teams, each with a variety of different scenarios.

The CFP has set up a working group of four management committee members -- Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey and Notre Dame's Swarbrick. They are expected to make a report to the entire management committee about the future format at the CFP's next meeting, which could be this summer. If there is a model the entire group supports, the committee will present it to the CFP board of managers, who have the ultimate authority over the playoff format.

There’s legs to this, I heard about it through back channels this morning as well.  There’s a committee but they’ve been in contact with people not in the committee about it.

Wheww, thanks.  I was afraid ESPN was just making it up until you verified.

I cannot stress enough that you guys - and all you AAC honks that read this board, and you too BYU - need to get on your Athletic Directors to get on Craig Thompson to push for "Top 6 Ranked Conference Champs" instead of "P5 Champs Plus Highest Ranked G5 Champ" for the 8 team playoff scenario. 

Not only is this minor distinction more equitable overall, but it will be VERY important for all G5 conferences - especially the MWC - going forward.

Notre Dame is a conference unto itself.

Do 8 teams. Power 5 champs, highest of the mid-majors, and 2 at-large.

Top 6 ranked Conference Champs (essentially the same thing) and 2 at-large
