Names are leaking out about who will be on the 12-to-18 member committee starting in 2014 to pick the 4 teams in the College Football Playoff (TM) (because they spent $1M to hire a marketing company to pick the best name for the college football playoff, and all that money resulted in the unique name, College Football Playoff -- hey, they capitalized it, at least).
Here's the current list of names:
Condy Rice is the interesting pick. Alvarez seems kind of obvious from the B1G -- you can't have UM or OSU on the committee, b/c over the next few years, they'll be picking themselves. Pat Haden (what's he been doing lately)?
They mention that Rice is of course a huge Stanford booster, but didn't she grow up in Alabama and wasn't she rumored for a while to be a potential gubernatorial or senatorial candidate from Alabama? I would imagine she's a Tide fan, too. ESS EE SEE.
