Here Is What The 2017 College Football Playoff Committee Will Look Like

Published

on

Oklahoma State is a legitimate 2017 College Football Playoff contender which means we will likely have to sit through weeks and weeks of inane drivel from the College Football Playoff committee come October. We have done this for the last two years, of course, but possibly not to the extent we will have to this year because of how highly the Pokes will be ranked to start the year.

So who is going to run that committee? Well, Kirby Hocutt was re-named the CFP committee chair, but there are a few additions and a few folks gone from the old committee. Here’s who’s in and who’s out (members have a maximum of three years to serve on the committee).

In
  • Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith
  • Former Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer
  • Robert Morris University president Chris Howard
Out
  • Wisconsin AD Barry Alvarez
  • Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
  • Former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr
New committee
  • Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt (chair)
  • Former Southern Miss head coach Jeff Bower
  • Former Central Michigan head coach Herb Deromedi
  • Former NCAA executive VP Tom Jernstedt
  • Former Vanderbilt head coach Bobby Johnson
  • Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long
  • Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens
  • Clemson athletic director Dan Darakovich
  • Former CFB reporter Steve Wieberg
  • Former Notre Dame head coach Tyrone Willingham
  • Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith
  • Former Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer
  • Robert Morris University president Chris Howard

And a look at the first time Frank Beamer is presented a list of how S&P rankings.
