Noon on ESPN.

This should be interesting.

UPDATE:  Well, that WAS interesting.

There are only 3 worthy teams this year, unlike last year, when there were many.

But there need to be 4. I guarantee it will be OSU. No way they take two from a mediocre SEC and shut the BIG champion out. OSU is much easier for them to defend and will piss off fewer power brokers.

It'll be Clemson, OU, Goergia, and Alabama.  OSU didn't go on some run like they did to end 2015; they barely beat a Wisconsin team that nobody thought was better than your average 2-3 loss team.  

They'll go to Pasadena, play USC, and that's how it should be.  This isn't a banner year for the conference, and letting them put in a deeply flawed team to get blown out again isn't a good look.

Although I agree with you, Bronx, in typical “pick your principles when appropriate” style, I’ll bet they shy away from picking Bama. They’ll reverse their stance that kept PSU out last year, and pick OSU, this ignoring the loss to Iowa, and the fact that Wisconsin was not the best competition.

I was excited to watch this but seeing the schedule of when they announce stuff is just plain sad. I'm not gonna waste my whole day on this.

NY6 announced at 3 ET? Are you kidding me?

Fuck ESPN.
